Want to help the Maemo Community ? Want to learn about our QA/testing process ? This call is for you.

Next Saturday(Mar 20) from 2pm onwards(UTC/GMT) we’ll host a testing marathon at #maemo-testing@Freenode, in order to make more awesome community applications available for the end users.
If you’re a developer, make sure your applications are in good shape before the testing marathon.

Here’s a small FAQ about the marathon:

What is a testing marathon ?

Basically is a ‘testing party’, where people get together to 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. Please follow our community QA process and checklist and vote the packages under: http://maemo.org/packages/repository...xtras-testing/

No, we'll only test application that are in the extras-testing repository, these should be ready for the end-users.

You can request testers for you apps in -devel opening a thread in the applications forum and requesting some help there.
