It's Test Day time again!

This Thursday, 2010-02-18, will be Color Management Test Day[1]. There's
some exciting new color management features[2] in Fedora 13. That is to
say, there are color management features in Fedora 13! We've never had
any real color management in Fedora before, so this is great news for
photographers and designers in particular - but everybody, really.

The good news is testing for this Test Day is very easy - anyone with a
monitor can do most of the testing. A scanner, printer, webcam or
colorimeter let you do some other tests. You don't need a Rawhide
installation to do the testing, just a nightly live image[3] will do
fine, and the testing process is fully documented and won't take more
than a few minutes. So come out and help us test! Even if you don't use
Fedora, you can test very easily with a live image, and this is one of
those features that's popping up in Fedora first but will soon appear in
all distributions (as it'll be part of GNOME itself), so you'll be
helping your own distribution by testing.

The Test Day will run all day in Freenode IRC #fedora-test-day.
