The 28th April 2011 marked BoxGrinder Build's [1] inaugural Fedora Test
Day session, attracting a modest number of users who helped run though a
variety of test-cases for release 0.9.1.

In the course of testing only two major unanticipated bugs were
encountered, along with several known issues for Fedora 15 appliances,
but no blockers preventing inclusion in the distribution.  These
problems have since been remediated in the upcoming 0.9.2 release [2],
along with some new features and improvements [3].

## JIRA tickets raised

[BGBUILD-210] Parameters are not being expanded, and cause early string
truncation. (Created: 28/Apr/11, Updated: 10/May/11, Resolved:
10/May/11) https://issues.jboss.org/browse/BGBUILD-210

This issue was a side-effect of our move to improved YAML parsing and

[BGBUILD-207] Guestfs dies on Fedora 15 with 'KVM not supported for this
target' message (Created: 28/Apr/11, Updated: 12/May/11, Resolved:
12/May/11) https://issues.jboss.org/browse/BGBUILD-207

An upstream issue with QEMU, which has subsequently been worked around.
