GNOME 3 Test Days

Hey, folks. So I've been doing some preliminary thinking about testing
GNOME 3 for F15; obviously it's one of the most significant and
potentially disruptive changes.

My preliminary idea is that there are possibly two different areas to
cover with test days: the Shell, and everything else. I think we can
focus on the Shell as one topic, and then on testing other apps in the
GNOME 3 environment as another; running them and making sure they work
and all expected operations are possible and covering potential issues
with GTK 3 and gsettings and so on.

We could (and probably should) run multiple test days on each topic;
maybe two or three for each.

What does everyone think of this as a general plan? When do you think it
would be best to start up with Test Days? My feeling with Rawhide right
now is that's probably too messy to get useful feedback from Test Days
yet; maybe shortly post-Alpha would be a good time to start up. But you
might have better ideas of when things should be present in at least
basically-working form. Thanks!
