Come join the Jokosher testing team on Sunday June 10th!

This Sunday June the 10th at 16:00 UTC will be the first meeting of the new Jokosher testing team, followed by a Gstreamer debugging tutorial to show you how to find and report useful information for all the most hated playback and recording bugs. 16:00 UTC translates to 5pm in England, 6pm in Europe, 9am in Western North America, and 12pm in Eastern North America.

Anyone is free to join, or just help out the testing team from time to time. Here is a list of the team’s responsibilities and what we will focus on during the meeting:

  • Creating a checklist of everything that must be working for the next release.
  • Prioritise bugs in the bug tracker. Make sure the developers know which bugs are most important to our users,
    and negotiate with them to see what can be implemented in time for the release.
  • Advise the developers on the quality of the betas and decide when it is ready to be released.
  • Help the developers implement automated and semi-automated testing to make sure there are no regressions.

If you would like to get involved and make a positive impact on Jokosher but you don’t know how to code, this is a perfect opportunity. This is also a chance to make sure your own bugs are fixed before our grand 1.0 release. Recording and playback are top priorities so if Jokosher doesn’t work on your computer, get in touch to make sure it does for 1.0.

Hope to see you all there!

Update: If you didn’t know already, the place to meet is the #jokosher channel on the IRC server irc.freenode.net. This is where we have all our meetings as well as our general day to day discussion on all Jokosher issues. If you are new to IRC just go to the Jokosher chat page and it will open up the chat room in your browser.

    I read through the transcript of the IRC session. It would help if someone could extract the important bits and document them here somewhere. In general I’d like to see more updates to the forum and/or wiki to help more people get involved.

    Important information to publish would be a list of the main bugs which will stop people from using Jokosher. I think it’s too involved for a casual visitor to start searching Launchpad.

    I fully intend to do some testing if someone can give the extra guidance on what I should do.
