We currently have a bug where the Online Accounts page in initial setup
is nonfunctional.  This doesn't violate any current release
criterion, but surely we don't want to release with a broken initial
setup experience. So let's add a new requirement for that. How about
"If an initial setup utility is run or intended to be run after the
first boot of the installed system, then it must start successfully and
each page or panel of the initial setup utility should withstand a
basic functionality test."
OK that's pretty basic, but it gets the point across. I think this can
be a final requirement, not necessarily important enough to be a beta
requirement. Bikeshed away!
all criteria proposals should definitely (also) go to the test list, adding
Just to put everyone on the same page, we already have this Basic criterion:
"A system installed with a release-blocking desktop must boot to a log in
screen where it is possible to log in to a working desktop using a user
account created during installation or a 'first boot' utility."
That means that user creation is already guaranteed to be functional (but
might be rough around the edges). Of course that doesn't cover any other
actions available in the initial setup. Therefore your proposal (targeting
the Final milestone, which seems sensible) makes sense in this regard.
There are the screens in the initial setup:
2. Privacy (Location Services, Automatic Problem Reporting)
3. Online Accounts (Google, Nextcloud, Microsoft, Facebook)
4. About You (Name, Username, Enterprise Login)
Since every screen contains just a couple of things, the "basic
functionality test" as you phrased it seems to cover essentially everything
that is present in there, with one arguable exception of the Enterprise
Login functionality. Do you have the same impression?
This will also cover the other initial setup screen that is visible for KDE
and other desktops (does it run also for ARM text installs? I'm not sure).
That one contains:
1. User Creation (Name, Username, Password, Make admin, Advanced)
And that was all (at least for my KDE install during which I didn't create
a regular user).
Overall I find the criterion reasonable and useful and I'm +1 to
incorporating it. Its current phrasing seems fine to me.
