Hello Kaj,

I just read your mail on the 16.04 release testing. I started fully
using Ubuntu Studio at the end of last year (been a vanilla Ubuntu user
next to Windows for around two years before).

First of all, I would like to personally thank you and the others for
your work on this great system. I'm so happy with how well it works,
audio performance is much better than with Windows and everything is so
configurable and responsive, it's really cool!

Anyway, I thought I'd join the development channel and see if I was able
to help out in some way, since 16.04 is kind of an important release for
me and I plan on using this system for a while now. Unfortunately, I've
been rather busy with the job and also at home lately, so I haven't had
very much time.

I want to download and test the new release right now, but I have got
two main questions about that:

Will it be fine to test the live system (or: fully installed on a USB
drive)? I'm asking because I can't reinstall my current system at the
moment and I don't have a spare hard drive at hand, or would that not be
sufficient for testing?

And: How do I report bugs, should I encounter any? Is it enough to
submit an automatic report as soon as an error window shows up or do I
have to manually file some kind of bug report (I have never done this

I don't mean to interrupt you and if there is some kind of manual on
this for newcommers, please just send me a link. I could only test this
release on three devices right now and I don't know if I can be of much
help, but I would certainly like to contribute, if possible. :-)

Thanks again, know that your work is much appreciated and please let me
know if I can help with this somehow.

Best regards,
