Ubuntu Precise Beta 1, the next Ubuntu LTS, is going to be released on
March 1rst and candidate images started appearing today.
As usual we'll be asking everyone on the QA team to participate in the
image testing to ensure we have good test coverage.
The procedures for testing ISO images and reporting results are
explained on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/ISO/Procedures
You can download Precise images directly from cdimages.ubuntu.com with
zsync or use dl-ubuntu-test-iso from ubuntu-qa-tools available from
launchpad with bazaar:
$ bzr branch lp:ubuntu-qa-tools
Test results are tracked on http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/
You'll need a Launchpad account to login on the tracker. Please register
if you are new to this.
The Foundation Team use a new tagging plan for report against Ubiquity
(the desktop installer) to indicate where the issue occurred. The syntax
of the tags is ubi-<step> where <step> is the name of the step as
described in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingUbiquity
This documentation as been refreshed, but don't hesitate to improve it.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
We will coordinate testing in #ubuntu-testing on freenode. Please, go
there often to see what others are testing or what needs to be tested.
Thank you very much for your help and happy testing!
