Hello Fellow Xubunteros,<br><br>I have been coordinating the ISO testing for Xubuntu since February of this year, and while it has really helped me to learn more about the release cycle, I am going to be changing jobs soon, and will not have as much free time. I'm also trying to contribute more to Xubuntu documentation, and that takes up my time, too. With those things in mind, I'm looking for someone who would be available to coordinate pre-release ISO testing for Xubuntu.
<br><br>The good news is that this is technically a very easy task. It just requires an interest in testing and some time immediately prior to a release. Things can get hectic on the days leading up to milestone release day, but it is otherwise not too difficult.
<br><br>A couple points:<br>- I will still test, but I just won't be able to coordinate testing<br>- It's not happening immediately. My new job starts on September 24th.<br>- I'll help transition things to whoever wants to take this over. You won't have to learn things from scratch.
<br><br>Who woud be good for this role? Here's a few qualities and attributes that would be helpful for someone interested in being the ISO test coordinator:<br>- An interest in testing pre-release versions of Xubuntu
<br>- A basic knowledge of the overall Xubuntu release cycle<br>- A computer with a cd burner and a decent (i.e., not dial-up) internet connection<br>- A spare computer, hard drive, or disk partition on which they would be willing to perform a test installation of Xubuntu
<br>- Preferred: I think it's easier for a test coordinator to coordinate things if they live in Europe (UTC-200 to UTC+500). This isn't a requirement, but a person in Europe would be at home in the evening when test coordination activity is ramping up, and it's much easier to coordinate activity from home than from the grocery store or your job.
<br>- Optional: Test coordination could even be shared amongst a few people. <br><br>If you're interested in heading ths up, please let me know. If you aren't interested in leading things yourself, please mention this to your appropriate local community teams in case someone else may be interested.
