Summary

"Laptop Testing" is a community-driven project started with Lucid Lynx Alpha 3. Our goal is get Ubuntu working great on as many different makes and models of laptops as possible, mainly (but not only) testing point releases of the development cycle to help devs in triaging bugs. This could be done both in all the Community and LoCos, sharing hardware info about Laptops and trying to attract as many new contributors as possible.

Project has a Testing Team on launchpad. It uses the QA Mailing List and IRC channel #ubuntu-testing. In the Testing Team Wiki page this project is reported under Activities along with an English page.

In this session we would like to present goals reached and some suggestions to improve the project.

Laptop Tracker

Thoughts

  • About the same number of tests performed in Beta 1, slight drop in Beta 2.
  • People need time to test their laptop (see the increment in Natty Final)
  • Critical areas for laptops (most bugs/test failures) are Suspend/Resume and Hotkeys.
  • Internal Data Card Reader, Video (internal and external) need attention too.

What's next

  • Try to automate the testing process as much as possible with checkbox. It can be patched to detect a dev release, so it can be used to test/report a bug about a laptop for the tracker without sending reports for the UF project (that it's used to validate hardware for stable releases)
  • Integrate in some way LaptopTestingTeam/UbuntuFriendly projects?
