> 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
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds.
>
> 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:
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds/42829/testcases/1303/results
> .
> Install (entire disk):
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds/42829/testcases/1300/results
> .
> Post-installation (Ubuntu Studio):
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds/42829/testcases/1455/results

> For i386:
> Live session:

> 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):
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds/42847/testcases/1310/results
> Upgrade (image):
> http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/269/builds/42847/testcases/1498/results

> For i386:
> Upgrade (software updater):

>> 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!
