The Ubuntu Testing day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a shared goal of testing an specific set of ISO images (Alpha, Beta, RC, Gold or Point releases). Taking the idea from the UbuntuBugDay, we want to apply the same concepts to ISO testing.
Join the Testing Day
Who can join the Testing Day? Everyone. You don't need to be a developer. You don't need to know how to code. Everyone is welcome. If you don't know how to help, then just stop on by and we'll explain everything to you. In fact, one of the objectives of the Testing Day is to help people willing to start testing Ubuntu to make it better.
Where to join the Testing Day? Come to #ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC. Normal testing activity takes place in #ubuntu-testing at other times also.
Which release we will be testing?
We are testing the Intrepid Alpha 6 release. For the Testing Day we will be focusing on testing the Live sessions for all the different Ubuntu flavours. Find below links to download the images:
