Hello Ubuntu Studio testers,

We finally got the RC image listing in the ISO QA Tracker! The summary page
of all flavours is available in

For Ubuntu Studio we have three main testcases: Live session, where we test
to see if our DVD image can actually run Ubuntu Studio in a live session;
Install (entire disk), for us to test whether the installation is
successful; and Post Installation (Ubuntu Studio), which is a specific
testcase for Ubuntu Studio to check if the audio settings are working.

The testcases are listed below:

For amd64:
Live session:
Install (entire disk):
Post-installation (Ubuntu Studio):

For i386:
Live session:
Install (entire disk):
Post-installation (Ubuntu Studio):

Download the image from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/dvd/currentand follow the
testcases in the above links. After you finished the
testing, make sure you report the results in the links above. You should
specify whether that's a pass (or fail) result, bugs reported and such.

We also have upgrade testcases (WE NEED MORE HELP IN THAT BIT) where we
test the upgrade process from 12.10 to 13.04. There are two methods: using
an image to upgrade, and using the Software Updater to upgrade.

For amd64:
Upgrade (software updater):
Upgrade (image):

For i386:
Upgrade (software updater):
Upgrade (image):

Again, follow the testcases and report your results in the above links.

Thank you all for testing, and we hope you enjoy QA for Ubuntu Studio!

> Dear Ubuntu Studio developers, testers and fellow users:
> We are now near the final release of Ubuntu Studio 13.04 (Raring
> Ringtail). We now need a full force of testers to help us do the testing of
> the release candidate images!
> Sure, you may ask: What's the point of testing dailies, when the official
> RC images hasn't landed in the ISO QA Tracker[1]?
> The following message is an answer from the Ubuntu Release Team to Phill
> Whiteside (Lubuntu QA Lead) last evening (UTC time):
> >
> >> Pretty much everything from here forward (well, as of today's crons,
> anyway) could be considered RC material.
> >> Everything we're producing this week is an RC until we stop spinning
> and declare a winner.
> >> So, I'd rather you just encourage people to test early and often all
> week, rather than fret over "the RC", of which there is none.
> >> (Or there are many, depending on how you look at it)
> >> All of them.
> >> And lots.
> >> Even when something *has* 100% test coverage, it STILL needs testing.
> >> Because not all testers are created equal, and some do weird things to
> find new and fun bugs.
> >> So, really. Just ask people to beat the crap out of the ISOs over the
> weekend and file bugs.
> Let me clarify: There is NO SINGLE RC. All the dailies produced now until
> official release are RCs. So please, download a daily image of Ubuntu
> Studio 13.04 (Raring Ringtail)  in [2] and start testing!
> You don't necesseraily have to report results in the ISO QA Tracker (for
> now, since the RC milestone hasn't been created in there). However, you DO
> have to report bugs for us:) When you target a bug, try to identify the
> package that causes the bug and file a bug using "apport-bug
> <packagename>". Please, though, after the bug is filed please also report
> the bug against the "Ubuntu Studio" project (as long as that package is in
> Ubuntu Studio), by clicking "Also affect project" so that we can track the
> bug.
> I will send a e-mail again when we DO have the milestone in the ISO QA
> Tracker.
> Have fun testing!
