Just posted to test-announce list, but I thought I would pass this along for folks not subscribed.
This will be a busy week for the Fedora QA team. As Adam pointed out, beta candidate testing is underway. Kamil and Jiří Moskovčák will host a test day on the Automatic bug detection and reporting tool (aka ABRT) this Thursday. Last, but not least, there will be a Test Day this Tuesday on SSSD by default.
SSSD isn’t new to Fedora 13. In fact, it first arrived in Fedora 11 (see previous test day almost 1 year ago). However in Fedora 13, it will be the default whenever setting up network identity or authentication. Also, a new and improved graphical user interface (authconfig) configuration utility is available. The utility will be presented during firstboot, or can be accessed from the System →Administration →Authentication menu item.
As with just about every Test Day, live images and easy-to-follow test cases are available for participants. While it’s best to test your own identity & authentication services, LDAP and kerberos servers are available for test day participants. So there is no excuse for not contributing your results.
Come join #fedora-test-day on irc.freenode.net this Tuesday. SSSD and authconfig developers and testers are available to help triage problems.
