As per the Fedora 22 schedule [1], Fedora 22 Beta Release Candidate 3
(RC3) is now available for testing.

RC3 has only one change from RC2: an updated libhif package to fix 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1211991 . As time is short 
before Go/No-Go we will likely not be able to complete all tests; we 
can transfer results that should be unaffected by the package change 
from RC2. Folks who have time to test RC3, please concentrate on the 
tests that may be affected (desktop updates test cases for both KDE 
and GNOME), and the basic sanity check tests to ensure nothing went 
wrong with the compose process. Thanks! I will look at the matrices in 
the morning (NA time) and transfer results as appropriate.

Content information, including changes, can be found at 
 https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/6132#comment:19 . Please see
the following pages for download links 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:








All Beta priority test cases for each of these test pages [2] must  
pass in order to meet the Beta Release Criteria [3]. For the Fedora  
22 cycle we are also trying to run the Final tests at this time, to 
try and identify later release blocker bugs as early as possible.

Help is available on #fedora-qa on irc.freenode.net [4], or on the  
test list [5].
