Hi everyone!

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!
