Greets, all.

I've got some good news.  We've got about nine days to go before the release
of Feisty Fawn's first beta release.  That means we've got enough time to
file so many Xubuntu test installation reports that we crash launchpad.  ;)

Instructions on testing Xubuntu can be found
Once you've completed your tests, you can report your results by leaving a
comment in the appropriate "ISO Testing
Just look for the appropriate distribution (Xubuntu!), and architecture
(i386 or AMD64) and installation type (Desktop or Alternate).  If you aren't
sure what to record,
here<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-iso-tests/+bug/91617>is a good

A couple of notes:

-  When testing, it might be worth looking at the bugs being tracked for
beta <https://beta.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+milestone/7.04-beta> to see if it's
possible to collect more information on any of them, confirm fixes, etc.  If
you've got an interest in bugs (who doesn't like bugs?) check out the Helping
With Bugs <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HelpingWithBugs> wiki page for a good

-  Also, during our last test cycle, a couple of individuals noted that they
had difficulty using rsync to keep their nightly ISO image "fresh." I found
a tutorial yesterday on Planet Ubuntu that explains how to use Jigdo for
incremental CD updates of daily
It's worth checking out if you want to have an updated ISO, but also want to
save some time and bandwidth.

Finally, a few of you have asked which machines you should test on.  I think
someone had around 15 different machines available for testing!  From my
perspective, testing on only one machine is great, and testing on 2 or 3
machines is more than great.  If you are going to test on more than one
machine, just try to vary up the architecture or specs.

Thanks again, everyone.
