Fedora Wants Your Help To Improve GNOME’s Shell – test day – today

The Fedora Project is seeking your help to improve the GNOME Shell and

its extensions.

Happening on Thursday, 15 March, today is a test-day surrounding the GNOME
Shell and its extensions for the GNOME 3.x desktop. The Fedora camp is
looking for people to try out the latest GNOME Shell and to then play

around with the many GNOME extensions.

Even if you’re not an ardent Fedora user, it’s recommended to
participate in their test days if you’re interested in the project
being tested. Unlike other distributions, the Fedora / Red Hat

developers actively work towards pushing their changes back upstream,
etc.

The state of the Fedora packages being tested are also the very
latest. Updated Fedora 17 i686 / x86_64 images have been spun for this

GNOME Shell testing to make the process quick and easy for anyone to
get involved. This test day is similar to their well known Fedora
graphics test days. Fedora 17 is using the GNOME 3.4 packages as their
default desktop experience.

Project Wiki page.

Meanwhile, next week is the deadline for features to be 100% complete
for the feature-rich Fedora 17. The beta of Fedora 17 "Beefy Miracle"
is expected to come early next month as an appetizer while the final

release is on the menu for May.
