Tomorrow (Tuesday 2016-04-19) will be Fedora Media Writer Test Day!
As part of this planned Change for Fedora 24, the Fedora graphical
USB writing tool - formerly called "Live USB Creator", and still
technically called that in terms of source repos and filenames, but in
the process of being rebranded as "Fedora Media Writer" - is being
extensively revised and rewritten. The idea is the new tool will be
sufficiently capable, reliable, and cross-platform usable that it can
be the primary download for Fedora Workstation 24: the main 'flow' of
the Workstation download page will run through the tool, instead of
giving you a download link to the ISO file and various instructions for
using it in different ways.
This would be a pretty big change, and of course it would be a bad idea
to do it if the tool isn't ready. So this is an important Test Day!
We'll be testing the new version of the tool to see whether it's
working well enough and catch any remaining issues.
It's also pretty easy to join in: all you'll need is a USB stick you
don't mind overwriting, and a system (or ideally more than one!) you
can test booting the stick on (but you don't need to make any permanent
changes to it).
All the instructions are on the wiki page, so please read through and
come help us test tomorrow!
As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.
