And we're off ...
Let's start with changes I've made to the Package tracker. 
When you visit the tracker now you will see there's a different set of
lists from last time.
Regarding the two Optional groups at top - I'll not be doing much in the
way of calling for these 2 groups as a whole, if you're using one of the
packages and have time to run the test (in 14.10) - please do so and
So that's the first call for _Optionals_ - I'll maybe do another towards
the end of the cycle. I'll maybe move something into a different tes
suite if it needs specific testing.
Which leaves the much reduced mandatory groups - 4 of them.
I'll give you the 'calendar' for those calls now, but will be following
along with calls as and when they're required.
*Xubuntu A - May 19th**
**Xubuntu B - June 9th**
**Xubuntu C - June 30th**
**Xubuntu D - August 11th*
This gives us space for the milestone image testing and a gap at cycle
end which we can use for specific testing. The schedule for milestones
can be found here  - that's not be finalised at the moment, but I
doubt much will change with that, it will certainly be final long before
a call from me.
Not much to say or that could be said - the images still need testing as
always, the Daily tests can be found here 
Milestone image testing will as always take place when it's required,
typically I will let you know once the url for the testpage is either
published, or I've brow beaten someone into telling me it early :)
Just a fyi - we are looking at creating 2 'team' PPA for people to use
to test bug fixes for us and one for new landing apps/packages. This
should enable us to get better testing of these things. Calls for that,
and more information about them, will happen - again - as and when. If
you're interested in covering that I would suggest using a virtual
machine that you can leave with the PPAs in place.
Finally - I would urge people, that are able to, to use 14.10 daily -
when you are using an application - check the testcase, if what you've
been doing covers, or more than covers it - then report it :) The more
reports we get the better. Obviously, if you've been using something and
have found a bug - report it.
As always - _*only reported results count*_ - and if you've seen the
blog post  recapping what we did in the last cycle, you'll see that
not only do they count for us - but I do in fact count them ;)
As an extra reward, though I'm sure you don't need more than knowing
that you helped the Xubuntu community - you'll get named :)
