Install testing environment
Also see: Sugar on a Stick/Installation/Variations
Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)
Follow instruction to install latest sugar packages and keep them up-to-date.
For instructions how to test the Features listed below please have a look at the section "How to test" of each Feature page. Please add yourself with your test result to the table of each Feature.
- Enhanced Gettext
Enhanced Gettext Testing plan - Enhanced Gettext adds an extra search path for translation files for Sugar activities. This allows deployments to add and update activity translations independently of the release process.
- Allow the Sugar user to connect to 3G networks
3G Support Testing plan - This Feature allows the Sugar user to connect to 3G networks using a device in the frame.
- Font configuration
Font configuration - Distributors/deployers can use a GConf preference to customize the Sugar font size.
- Test your own native language (can be set using the Control Panel).
- is the 3G Feature listed in the section above fully translated?
Backwards compatibility tests
- Migrate the Journal
Please verify that the Journal is migrated fine after an update. For example from 0.82 to 0.88.
Connectivity: Different internet connections
You should test here if you can connect with a WEP and WPA/WPA2 network, if a wired connection is possible and the 3G connection test can be logged here, too.

How to write a good bug report
You should note the following in the bug report:
- the version you are using
- steps to reproduce
In most cases it is of interest to the developers to look at the Sugar logs. Instructions how to get the logs can be seen here.
Meetings are held online using IRC, Internet Relay Chat. You can read here more how to use IRC to join the meeting. The meeting will be taking place on the channel #sugar on the irc.freenode.net server, irc://irc.freenode.net#sugar, or webchat client.

When: 14:00 UTC (9 EST)
Testing Day February the 16th
This will be an asynchronous effort, hence "Testing day" :). However we will do two kickstart meetings. One at 14:00 UTC and one at 19:00 UTC. In these meetings we will give a short introduction to what to test and answer questions about how to get the image on a usb-key and of course how to gather the results.
- Kickoff-Meeting 1: 14:00 UTC
- Kickoff-Meeting 2: 19:00 UTC

(This is the latest soas nightly build. At the moment starting activities is broken in that build. As this is a daily snapshot it will not be fixed in time for the meeting, hence use the build from the link above.)
