Tobin Davis

This Week in QA

  • National Holiday (Presidents Day)
  • Received Dove X0 - initial testing fails to boot. Filed Bug 522834.
  • Start Pairwise testing with updated image to reduce false failures - new bug causes partitioner to crash if drive has existing partitions - Bug 524169
  • Continued testing of UNE live image - Filed bugs 524066 & 522848

  • Received test kernel for X0 - Installed on imaged system using Y1 board. New kernel works on both Y1 & X0.

  • Retested several Yx bugs on X0 and closed them as fixed (510954, 512620, 522834)
  • Spent Friday with PDX team. Asked for input on daily test log ideas. Didn't get any valuable input. Spent rest of day working remotely on LSB olver-core-test fixes.
  • Integrated latest fixes to olver-core-test from LSB Engineers. Slight improvement only. Need to do a full rebuild with changes to ensure that all changes are fixing compiler warnings if nothing else.


  • Alpha 3 Release testing

  • Pairwise testing post Alpha 3. Hope to finish as much as possible so I can refocus on real testing again.
