NOTE: Signing of the RC5 checksums is not yet complete. To be sure we're
testing the right bits we should remember to check that the images we
test match the signed checksum files once they're available, and of
course you can carefully check the TLS certificate of the server when
downloading the images. fedup tests may require the --nogpgcheck
parameter until the signed .treeinfo file is available. releng will
update and close the trac ticket when signing is complete.

As per the Fedora 21 schedule [1], Fedora 21 Final Release Candidate 5
(RC5) is now available for testing.

The difference between RC5 and RC4 is that the changes to python-blivet
and pyparted that were introduced in RC1 to fix bug #1166598 have been
reverted, as they were found to cause more serious problems than they
fixed. As this change affects the installer, all installation validation
tests should be run again. Existing RC4 test results for
post-installation tests will be considered valid and transferred into
the RC5 result pages; from now on, please do all testing with RC5

Please see the following pages for download links (including delta ISOs)
and testing instructions. Normally dl.fedoraproject.org should provide
the fastest download, but download-ib01.fedoraproject.org is available
as a mirror (with an approximately 1 hour lag) in case of trouble. To
use it, just replace "dl" with "download-ib01" in the download URL.





Workstation and Desktop:








Ideally, all Alpha, Beta, and Final priority test cases for each of
these test pages [2] should pass in order to meet the Final Release
Criteria [3]. Help is available on #fedora-qa on irc.freenode.net [4],
or on the test list [5].
