I am a software developer so 'buntu distribution testing is still a bit
new to me. I am up for helping out with testing all the way to release
on my orphaned-by-Intel D2550MUD2 (Cedar View) motherboard. Actually,
Saucy from the Mir testing ISO using the Modesetting X driver has been
running very well from my perspective. It has become my everyday
system, even for long development compiles and builds.
So, a few questions from a distribution testing beginner:
1. Is there a test plan available for Saucy Beta 1 that I should read?
I would be looking for a specification that included all of the
installation variants that are thought to be desirable to test. Batch
processing testing? Desktop operations testing?
2. When the Beta 1 ISO is available, grab it and perform a ground up
re-install is ideal? That would be fine by me. All my important stuff
is on a network drive. I think that my rig would run annoyingly slow
with a VM setup.
3. How should we maintain the Beta 1 ISO once it is installed? Is `sudo
apt-get dist-upgrade` sufficient to fetch daily updates or is it
desirable to occasionally do another ground-up? I suppose that depends
somewhat on whether or not you want to repeat installation testing, yes?
