FESCo, in cooperation with Fedora QA and Fedora Program Manager,
decided to push back Fedora 18 Beta Change Deadline by one week due to
unfinished/non testable functionality required for the Beta release.
For more information (and voting results) see FESCo ticket #946,
"Fedora 18 Beta freeze readiness: is major functionality in place?" .
Beta Change Deadline/Features 100% Complete is now 2012-10-23.
There are still a few unfinished features , please update/postpone
(to F19) your features before reaching the deadline.
As a result, ALL MAJOR MILESTONES, and their dependent tasks,
will be pushed out by one week .

Your schedule wrangler
The next version of QA's blocker tracking app was pushed to production
today. New features include:
- Blocker/NTH Fix Tracking
- Test spin tracking
- Interface re-design
* With help from the design team and Máirín Duffy in particular
- Basic stats on blocker/nth bugs
- Lots of minor fixes
- There is always an up-to-date list (synced every 30 minutes)
of blocker and nth fixing updates that need to be tested
- Since blocker and nth fixes are now being tracked like the bugs are,
updates with blocker/nth fixes should get more attention
- If you do have a blocker/nth fix, please mark it as such in bodhi or
it won't be noticed by the new app.
If you notice bugs or have suggestions on how the app could be
improved, please file an issue in the qa trac:
# Fedora Quality Assurance Meeting
# Date: 2012-10-15
# Time: 15:00 UTC
# Location: #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net
It's meeting time again tomorrow. We're still not frozen for Beta, so we
should check in on current status there (as I write this, the upgrade
app is still not available). We also have general Beta status check and
blocker review to go through.
This is a reminder of the upcoming QA meeting. Please add any topic
suggestions to the meeting wiki page:
The current proposed agenda is included below.
== Proposed Agenda Topics ==
1. Previous meeting follow-up
2. Fedora 18 Beta status / mini blocker review
3. Open floor

I'm glad to announce Power management testday,
date: 2012-10-11 (Thursday), link: 
During this event suspend/hibernate/resume, backlight control
as well as tuned daemon will be tested. You can also measure
& compare power consumption with others. As a new F18 kernel
feature suspend to both (AKA hybrid suspend) will be also
tested. And there are prepared even more test cases for you.
Users with laptops, desktops or even with virtual machines
are also very welcome, your report will be useful even if not
complete. LiveCD ISOs will be prepared for you for easy testing.
As a bonus we prepared on site testday. If you are near to Brno
city (Czech Republic) you can bring your HW to Red Hat Brno
office  (second building, 4th floor - visitors room)
from 13.00 to 17.00. There will be prepared live media,
calibrated industry standards compliant wattmeter (Chroma 66202),
serial cables for kernel oops catching and more
we are looking for you testers :)
thanks & regards
