Meetings

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.

When

  • Kickoff-Meeting 1: 14:00 UTC
  • Kickoff-Meeting 2: 19:00 UTC

Where

This meeting will be an online meeting 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.

Soas Testing day build

(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.)

Testing plans

0.88 Features

We use the section "How to test" of the Feature page.

  • Enhanced Gettext Testing plan - Enhanced Gettext adds an extra search path for translation files for Sugar activities. This would allow deployments to add and update activity translations independently of the release process.
  • Font configuration - Distributors/deployers need a way to be able to customize the Sugar font size.

Language Tests

  • There was an issue with unpackaged languages.
    • Danish (da): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "Du skal skrive et navn.")
    • Malagasy (mg): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "Tsy maintsy mampiditra anarana ianao")
    • Albania (sq): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "Vetem emri duhet shkruar")
    • Swedish (sv): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "Du måste ange ett namn.")
    • Swahili (sw): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "Lazima uingize jina lako")
    • Tamil (ta): Control Panel, about me section: (msgid "You must enter a name." msgstr "நீங்கள் பெயரை பதிவு செய்யுங்கள்.")
  • Test your own native language (can be set using the Control Panel)

Instructions to flash Soas

You can use the Blueberry instructions to flash Sugar on a Stick on your usb device.

livecd-iso-to-disk_to_write_live_USB possibly unsupported [1] if using Fedora

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.
