Hi All,

The first Alpha release of Xubuntu is set for this Thursday, which got me to
thinking about pre-release ISO testing.  Please see the two notes below
concerning testing for Xubuntu (gmail users may need to click on a link that
says "show hidden text").

For developers, what do you think of the specification?  Is this something
that you feel like you could contribute to?

For non-developers, I'll post this as a follow-up to an earlier request [1]
- is there anyone who would be willing to head-up xubuntu testing efforts?
Please see the link that I've referenced below for further details.

Of course, feel free to let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks.

Hi Jim,

And thank you :)  Yes, a dedicated Xubuntu test lead would indeed be
useful. We are also planning to automate some of the Ubuntu ISO testing
for Hardy and I'd be interested to know how feasible that is on Xubuntu
(it requires the ATK accessibility framework to be available, which it
should be on all GTK apps). It would be great if there were some Xubuntu
developers who were interested in extending test automation work to Xubuntu.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Specs/DesktopAutomatedTests
