As you've posted to the Xubuntu list - I'll give you some specific
All of our testing gets reported on the Ubuntu trackers - there are 2
that we use, 1 for images and 1 for packages.
To do more than read the tests you will need to be able to login to the
Our package tests are collated at
That shows you 2 groups of Optional tests - and four other package
groups - Suite A to D. We are more interested in results for the latter
4 than the optional, though any test is better than none.
Using the Menulibre testcase as an example -
Once at that page you will see /Link to the installation
instructions /and /Detailed information on the testcase/ - you can
ignore both of those.
Below those you can see /Testcase/, click that and you will then see
the testcase we want performed for Menulibre.
Run through that - either in an installed system or in a vm and then
report your result at the bottom. You can either mark the test as
Failed - in which case you must link at least one bug, and for it to
fail it would need to be a critical bug.
Passed - this can have a bug associated or not.
In progress - self -explanatory, you can return later to change
status to Failed or Passed.
Image testing is collated at http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker,
currently we aqre testing Utopic Dailies -
Filtering on the left pane to Xubuntu will leave you with 3 Products,
Xubuntu Core, Xubuntu Desktop amd64 and Xubuntu Desktop i386.
Ignore the Xubuntu Core product, that will be the topic of a mail to the
dev list in a short while.
Using either the 64 or 32 bit options left you will find 5 tests we ask
people to test on images, 3 relate to actually installing - entire disk,
autoresize and manual partitioning - each of those has a testcase
associated with it in the same way as package testcases do - read the
testcase - do what it asks - report your result.
The Live Session test can be undertaken while you are completing one of
the 3 install tests, or if you wish as a stand-alone test.
All of these testcases can be done on a virtual machine, but if you are
intending to do the auto-resize test you MUST have both an existing AND
sufficient disk space for the recommended disk size.
The final image testcase, Post-Install, obviously requires you to have
an installed system to test.
