Xubuntu Team

  • Team meetings:
  • Team updates:
    • ochosi is testing getting rid of gnome-icon-theme in 14.04 to reduce overhead
    • Everyone can test that by using the shimmer daily PPA (bluesabre put up trusty packages today)
    • skellat is satisfied with testing whiskermenu via no-change backport to 12.04 and is willing to vote on a proposal to make it default
    • skellat has made no-change backport versions available in ppa:skellat/tests for those willing to try whiskermenu who are not yet on trusty
    • ali1234 made a tool to easily change panel layouts: command line only at the moment, but it does the job. needs someone to design a gui

    • Set up call for testing schedule
    • Image testing: 64 bit - 5 people did 7.3% of all possible tests and for 32 bit - 4 people did 13.2% of all possible tests
    • Automatic image testing - working for us now, though currently all failing due to the user-session bug, can be seen here

    • Package testing - 13/13 Mandatory, 4/5 Run Once, 10/22 Optional - atm 3 people tested packages(these all need further testing calls though) re schedule
    • Used the contact team members (xubuntu-testers) for testing call last time, 1 person amongst those mentioned above seems new to me
    • QA team is running now - good forward step this, everyone knows (or should) what each other is working on
    • Call to be written explaining exploratory testing - these will be reported via packages tracker, but is about people testing when they're using apps rather than to a schedule
    • gthumb 3.2.5 is now uploaded, a second upload will re-add webapps
    • Sent "What's New in Trusty" doc proposal email to ML
    • autopilot tests has a bit of a step forward, looks like we can do some basic testing with the xfce at the moment (checking to see if they open)
