What about testing desktop FOSS? How do I find people interested in these topics? Is there anybody out there? Hello?
Fortunately, there is a growing community in the FOSS world interested in testing desktop applications automatically. To try to keep things going, we are having weekly meetings at #ubuntu-testing (irc.freenode.org) every Wednesday at 16:30UTC, running for half an hour.
