The final of the three Fedora 15 GNOME 3 Test Days took place on
It drew 23 testers which is little more than previously, while less
original bugs were reported this time - a fact connected to some great
work developers did on GNOME in recent months. Also this time the
final 3.0 packages were included in the Test Day and everybody who
attended the first one could see the difference.
Most bugs were again reported into Fedora bugzilla and a couple in the
GNOME bugzilla. Bugs relate to all parts of gnome-shell and are mostly
centred around standing issues like multi-head configurations etc.
Here is the list of original bugs. As most have already been triaged,
pre-existing bugs and duplicates are not listed.

GNOME Test Days are over now, but we can still use your help with
Cloud SIG Test Day tomorrow and following QA events tied to
exciting process of final release: desktop and installation
testing of the Final RC's in about two weeks.
The Cloud SIG test day for Fedora 15 is will be this Thursday . The
focus will be on using BoxGrinder  and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud
(EC2)  with Fedora 15.
BoxGrinder is "a set of projects that help you grind out appliances for
multiple virtualization and Cloud providers." Another way to put it is
that BoxGrinder makes it easy to create and deploy custom installations
of Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS to your favorite KVM, Xen
or VMWare based clouds. This includes private clouds and EC2.
Live images, prebuilt EC2 amis and meta-appliances  will be available
on the test day if you don't already have Fedora 15 installed. Detailed
instructions for how to test are available on the wiki .
There are test cases for BoxGrinder that can be run without an AWS
account for EC2 but testing on Amazon's infrastructure and other cloud
providers (BoxGrinder also supports ElaticHosts, SKALI Cloud, Open
Hosting and Serverlove) would be very much appreciated.
Get ready for some cloudy good-ness and please help test if you have the

GNOME3 Fedora 15 Test Day:
3.0 packages are already out and included in the Test Day images, so

As you've known that Beta has been declared gold, validation tests were
being executed to guarantee that Beta RC2 could finally meet the beta
release criteria. During the tests, as expected, no beta blockers
were found and the results were summarized as below:
