Do you have a *nVIDIA* or *ATI* graphics card? Do you want to help
ensure users have a smooth experience if they choose to use the
proprietary drivers?

We are looking for committed volunteers to test nVIDIA and ATI
proprietary drivers on a weekly basis. The goal of this testing is to
catch regressions early in the cycle, and fix bugs before they reach a
major audience.

If you want to be part of the team you will need:

1. A computer with an ATI (R600 or newer) or nVIDIA (GeForce series 2)
graphics card
2. A spare partition on that system
  * If you don't have a spare partition you can easily create one.
3. One hour of your time per week
4. An Internet connection

If you want to take part in this adventure, please, send me an email
(ara AT ubuntu DOT com) with the exact model of your graphics card, and
I will get back to you with detailed instructions.

Thanks for helping making Ubuntu even better!

P.S. This project goal is to test the proprietary drivers. If you're
interested in testing the free drivers, we don't need installation
testing but help is always welcome. Check how at the Ubuntu X team page [1].
