 The first GNOME 3 Test Day took place on 2011-02-03 and went very well, 
 a lot to everyone who took the time to help out with testing!

 Just preparing images for the test day exposed some important bugs to 
 be fixed,
 and the event itself exposed many more. We had 56 tests run by slightly 
 testers (many thanks to those who tested multiple machines!) and the 
 list of
 reported bugs looks like this:

 Many of these bugs could benefit from triage, so if Bugzappers have 
 time to
 work on that, it would be great. As you can see, several bugs have 
 been fixed, and many more remain to be worked on.

 We have some other bits of analysis to do, particularly about which
 systems hit the fallback path and how it worked for those systems,
 which I'll work on later. For now, thanks again to everyone who came
 to test, and to the desktop team for all their hard work helping
 prepare the stack for testing and helping out on the Test Day.
