There will be a "GNOME Shell and Extensions" Test Day on Thursday!


Here's an introduction from Vitezslav Humpa, who's in charge of this event from QA perspective:

While Fedora 17 Test Day cycle is starting to take speed, this week's Test Day is focusing on Gnome 3 again, in particular the gnome-shell extension management. Since the release of the new Gnome about a year ago there has been a great progress in ways one can customize it. Remember applets, desktop widgets etc. back in Gnome 2? Missed them? Now we have all that back in form of Gnome shell extensions! Shell's architecture makes it relatively painless to make them and lots of useful extensions are already out.

There are several ways one can manage them. In addition to having gnome-tweak-tool, extension management has also been integrated with web browsers and https://extensions.gnome.org/. There you can search for and install extensions as well as generally manage them - all directly from the web. Haven't tried it yet? Go on, it's really nice! And while you're at it, you can kill two birds by a single stone by joining the Fedora Test Day as you explore the world of customizing your Gnome.
