Help with Testing
With new builds coming frequently, it is sometimes hard to keep track of known problems and temporary workarounds. Sometimes a build will not complete the boot process, or only start certain services.
Testers can help other testers by organizing some of their findings here. Remember different hardware combinations may have different results.

Join the development effort
- Development discussions take place on the Sugar-Devel email list, http://lists.sugarlabs.org/listinfo/sugar-devel.
- Real-time development chat is at irc://irc.freenode.net#sugar Mibbit: #sugar
- Source files are at Gitorious SoaS home
- OLPC:Rawhide-XO for the closely-related development of Sugar for the XO-1 laptop on Fedora 11.
Downloading alternative images
A variety of images for testing are available (see table below). Some of images might still be unstable; that means they might not work yet.
- The SoaS beta release is currently based on Soas2-200904141108.iso. It's the most stable version we have right now, and is recommended for general testing purposes.
- On the other hand, you can also grab a current snapshot, which includes the latest bits, but these might contain some issues and bite back. We really need your help on testing those to move forward!
- The virtual appliance is not ready for general use and is under heavy development. Any help with testing it is also appreciated, though.
