On January 27, 2011, Fedora QA hosted a biosdevname Test Day +AFs-1+AF0.
Thanks to all who participated on wiki+-irc, and kudos to Narendra for
organizing the event.  I'm including some feedback from Narendra in this

+AD4 I believe test day was successful because it provided the required
+AD4 exposure to biosdevname to a wider user base and provided more
+AD4 familiarity with the new naming convention. Following issues that came
+AD4 up were important
+AD4 +ACo Handling of pci+ADw-slot+AD4AIwA8-port+AD4 where the name contains a '+ACM'. The test
+AD4 scenario exposed issues with anaconda's  handling of +ACM in a interface
+AD4 name, both in 'ksdevice+AD0' scenario and in 'ks.cfg --device' scenario.
+AD4 +ACo Behavior of biosdevname in a KVM guest environment, where one of the
+AD4 interfaces had an entry in +ACQ-PIR table, for which biosdevname suggested
+AD4 a name. The other interface did not have an entry in +ACQ-PIR table and
+AD4 biosdevname did not suggest a name.
+AD4 +ACo PCI add-in interfaces getting emN names on some quad port network
+AD4 adapters.

Narendra identified the following areas for additional testing.  If you
are interested in pitching in, you can post results to the wiki, or file
bugs, at any time during the release.

+AD4      1. More testing for SRIOV devices 
+AD4      2. Test NPAR capable devices when they become widely available 
+AD4      3. Wider Network Adapter coverage 
+AD4      4. Wider hypervisor/guest environment coverage

The following testers +AFs-2+AF0 participated in the event and posted results
to the wiki.  Congrats to shyam+AF8-iyer and Dramsey as our top two testers
for this event.

those contributions at this time.
