As racing has the Monaco GP, tennis has Wimbledon, and soccer has the
World Cup, so the Test Day schedule has its crowning event: yes, it's
Graphics Test Week again!

As with Fedora 12, we're smooshing all the graphics card Test Days into
one week to save space on the schedule and make everything feel that
much more momentous. So, Tuesday April 13th will be NVIDIA (nouveau)
Test Day [1], Wednesday April 14th will be ATI/AMD (radeon) Test Day
[2], and Thursday April 15th will be Intel graphics Test Day [3]. As
always, we need your feedback to know where we're at for the Fedora 13
cycle and fix as many critical bugs ahead of release as we can. Again as
always, it's not a disaster if you miss the day - you can do the testing
before or after the day, and we'll still be able to use your results;
the day is just when you can be sure someone will be around on IRC to
help with the testing and discuss the results. And finally, again as
always, there's no need to have an unstable Fedora installation to do
the testing: you can use a live CD if you don't want to install Fedora
13 or Rawhide.

Significant changes to graphics support for Fedora 13 include very
experimental 3D support for NVIDIA cards, and improvements to the
still-experimental 3D support for recent AMD/ATI cards. Please do come
out and help us with the testing this week! You can do all the testing
just by following the Wiki instructions, but there will also be QA team
members or developers present in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC
throughout the day to help with the testing and discuss the results (and
possibly even fix some of the bugs in real time).
