Are you a lucky N900 owner ? Want to help the Maemo Community ? This call is for you.
In the next Saturday(Oct 31) from 2pm till 7pm(UTC/GMT) we’ll host a testing marathon at #maemo-testing@Freenode, in order to make more awesome community applications available to end users. This marathon will be also a test for our community QA process, we want to test it and improve it before the N900 hits the shelves.
If you’re a developer, make sure your applications are in good shape before the testing marathon.
The information above was bit confusing for you ? Here’s a small FAQ:
What is a testing marathon ?
Basically is a ‘testing party’, where people together test software, report bugs, talk/send feedback to developers in order to improve our community applications.
Do I need to be a developer to take part of the marathon ?
No, even if you can’t judge all the criteria in the QA checklist, you’re more than welcome, every small help has big value for us.
Do I need to be in the irc channel during the entire marathon ?
No, you can join/leave at anytime, but it’s recommendable to be in the channel at the beginning of the marathon, if you need some help or have some doubts.
I can’t attend the marathon, can I help in some way ?
Of course, you can test and evaluate applications at any time. Try to follow our community QA process and checklist and vote the packages under: http://maemo.org/packages/repository/qa/fremantle_extras-testing/
