Sure, it‚Äôs not only the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything, it‚Äôs also the next milestone for the QA team on the fedora quality schedule. So, while beta testing and triage of reported issues continues, fixes to blocker bugs (and non-critical path components) are arriving daily. In case you don‚Äôt regularly follow fedora-test-list, Liam Li sent out a request for testing today. If you‚Äôd like to get involved, here‚Äôs a few areas in need of extra eyes.
Test the latest installer
With a spare laptop or workstation (or just a virtual guest), you can provide feedback on how the installer is doing by sharing results on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Results:Fedora_12_Pre-RC_Install. The installer continues to improve since the beta. Take a look at recent anaconda changes for a change that may impact your system(s).
Test a bug fix
Help a maintainer by verifying a recent bug fix.¬† A good place to start is by choosing a MODIFIED bug from the F12Blocker list. ¬†The list of MODIFIED bugs will be growing as issues are triaged and patches come in.
