[Ubuntugnome-qa] Fwd: Participation in 14.10 alpha-1 (due out this Thursday)

So, has anyone let Stéphane know that we're opting in so the images can be synced to Alpha 1 on the QA Tracker from Daily?

I used the 20140622 image for some testing and it was working well enough for an Alpha 1.

Hello everyone,

The bad news, I'm also travelling back and forth today and tomorrow for an urgent personal issue which can't be delayed :(
I really feel bad but we all know that real life comes first. Sad but true. I wish I'm full time dedicated to Ubuntu GNOME but this is just not possible at the moment.

That said, I shall do my best. Release Notes shouldn't be a hassle as we can use the template of the last cycle's notes and change the paragraph related to Utopic Unicorn.

I shall be travelling in an hour from now and not yet sure when I shall be back?!

Once I'm home again with Internet access (I have no internet access when I'm outside my home), I shall look at the release notes, etc.

As for the Release Team, I shall reply now before I leave ...

I'm VERY sorry but not sure what happened to my life lately ... everything changed ...


>Everyone else: it would be great if someone on the qa team can step up and keep track of all the main issue/bugs that arise from the testing.

I second that.
I know I'm guilty and it makes me so bad because we didn't send any email for testing this cycle but hope if someone could help us to highlight the major issues? thanks in advance ...

The major ones should go in the release notes, and the rest should be fixed for alpha2.


I will at some point setup tags for utopic milestones so
>we can assign the bugs to milestones.

On another hand, I'll do MY BEST to find a way if myself and Tim are busy, there must be someone who should take care of these urgent matter ... I can cancel anything online and focus on Ubuntu GNOME but when it comes to real life urgent issues, I really can't do anything :(
