So we have a set of release validation tests for Fedora Server. Per the
release process, these tests have to be run for each milestone release
to be approved. Up till now, sgallagh has been doing a lot of this
testing, and I've been doing a little. sgallagh is going to have very
limited time for it going forward, and I don't think I'm going to be
able to take over all the load, so it'd be great if people could step
up to help out.
You can always find the 'current' Server release validation page at
There are image download links at the top of the page.
Every few days a new compose will become the 'current' one, and ideally
we should do as much testing as we can for each compose. But we
absolutely *need* to do the testing when we build a 'candidate' compose
that may be ready for release; I'll make sure to mail the list when
The firewall tests are automated by openQA so they're low priority for
manual testing, but unfortunately we haven't managed to automate the
other tests yet, I've been working on that for a while but it's been
slow going :/ The trickiest ones to do are the Active Directory ones, I
am not in fact set up to do those as I have no AD domain. The FreeIPA
tests are next hardest.
Tests marked 'Alpha' and 'Beta' must be done for Fedora 24 Beta to go
out. Tests marked 'Final' don't *have* to be run at Beta, but it's good
if we can.
So I know everyone's busy, but if everyone could spare an hour or two a
week to hit up the Current page and run some tests on whatever compose
is 'current' at the time, that'd be great. You can enter your results
by editing the wiki directly, or if that's not your idea of fun, you
can use my 'relval' tool, which provides a fairly simple CLI for
reporting results. Just run 'dnf install relval' then 'relval report-
results' and it will walk you through the process. relval writes the
results into the wiki page for you, so after submitting your results
you can refresh the page and see them show up.
