What to test?

Today's installment of Fedora Test Day will focus on i18n.

If you come to this page after the test day is completed, your testing is still valuable, and you can use the information on this page to test with your system and provide feedback.

Who's available

The following cast of characters will be available testing, workarounds, bug fixes, and general discussion ...

Prerequisite for Test Day

  • A fully updated Fedora 12 Rawhide machine. See instructions below.

How to test?

Prepare Your System

Live Image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture. Tips on using a live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.


What to test?

The idea is to test your common usage of desktop applications in your native language, and identify any problems or weaknesses.

The main focus areas are:

  • gdm login
  • display of text in browser, openoffice, and other applications
  • input using ibus and its rendering
  • printing

It is recommended to test from a fresh account or Live instance (without former persistence).

  • QA:Testing for pa_IN: All tests are passed. But translation for im-chooser package is not up-to-date which I compared with submitted translation. (jsingh)
