    • Loosely, new testers were guided on how to do quality assurance, how to follow the testcases, where to get images to be tested etc. (astraljava, 15:14:50)
    • It was agreed that the testcases need more refinery. Related to that, we just had the Ubuntu QA community meeting. Agreed on there was that each point in testcase is critical, meaning if any of them fails, the whole test fails. (astraljava, 15:16:02)
    • There's also going to be new testcases, and a new interface for administering them, for flavors as well. More news about this when the thing develops. (astraljava, 15:16:52)
    • We have had a few tests done on the images (thanks hobgoblin, others!), but I need to gather a bit more data on how we're doing. This is more important to the upcoming milestone release, Alpha-2 next week. (astraljava, 15:17:47)
