Hi Fedora users, developers and friends!

today Fedora 19 was branched from Rawhide. That means testing season begins now and will continue till Fedora 19 Final Release, which may be (or may not be) on 2013-06-25. Please, fasten your seatbelts, fire up your virtual or baremetal machines and enjoy this crash testing ride with us.

Before Alpha will (or won't) be ready on 2013-04-16, we have prepared some Test Days[0] for you. Starting this Thursday with KDE 4.10 [1] with one major innovation. You are invited to try how new KDE 4.10 [2] stuff not only using Fedora 19 Live test images, but also from updates-testing repository on your current Fedora stable installation, including both Fedora 18 and Fedora 17 releases. For first time, you can test new version of whole KDE platform before it rolls up and in as an stable update for your Fedora!

Well, you may already know about and use Bodhi[3] with karma voting process. But Test Day provides an opportunity to actually talk to developers before KDE 4.10 reaches stable updates and interactively report, explore, debug and fix your issues (or at least find workarounds for the time being). Together we can make this update less painful for everyday Fedora KDE users.

Join IRC #fedora-test-day on FreeNode and ask QA or developers for help, if you get into trouble. We can try to find workarounds and help you with debugging. Please report all bugs under appropriate component preferably at upstream bugzilla https://bugs.kde.org/ regarding common KDE 4.10 issues or Red Hat bugzilla http://bugzilla.redhat.com/ if you have problems with Fedora distribution integration. You can also report other Fedora bugs not related to this Test Day. Feel free to ask on IRC, if you don't know against which component or on what bugzilla you should fill the report.

See you in Bugzilla!

Best Regards,
