Now if you know me from the Ubuntu Community Quality Assurance team, you would know that I exceptionally like (sorry, I LOVE) ISO Testing. So, here are some great tips for you to play with ISO testing in your 3-day Ubuntu Global Jam event.
1. Make sure you have some spare machines. Virtual machines can also be used, but if you have some machines that aren’t used for ages, please help. For example, if you have a PowerPC computer from Apple Computer, Inc., you could use it for testing. As I know the QA Team from Lubuntu really needs people testing for it (although I foresee the day soon when PowerPC will NOT be supported).
2. Make sure you have a Launchpad account. This is extremely important since you need it for access to login and report testcases to the ISO QA Tracker. You would also need it to report bugs against Ubuntu or a specific package (For example ubiquity).
3. If you think something that should happen doesn’t, please report a bug. Even if the bug turns out invalid, at least it makes you know that exists and you don’t report it again next time.
4. Make sure you come to #ubuntu-quailty on irc.freenode.net to get advice and help from the QA Team members.
So enjoy having fun ISO Testing in Ubuntu Global Jam!!!!!!!!!!!!!
