Re: DRAFT Fedora 9 Installation Test Plan

Greetings folks,

I wanted to thank folks who joined the fun at our Friday hackfest session @ FUDCON. There were a lot of great ideas for how best to flesh out the test plan.

The test plan is under development at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/TestPlans/Fedora9Install [1]

How much of this testplan are we planning to execute on the Fedora 9 Alpha? I think it would be good to have a portion of it ready by then.

We could potentially slice and dice this a few ways. One way to view the tests would be by milestone (alpha, beta, RC etc..). In section "Test Pass/Fail Criteria" (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/TestPlans/Fedora9Install#head-fe8bc4554801c1b99ceb2f2b3f508a3f4bd16fcf) I've attempted to outline how the test results will be evaluated at the different F9 milestones. For example, for the Alpha ...

Entrance criteria have been met
All tier#1 tests have been executed

That might be a bit aggressive ... but no better way to tell than trying it. A big outstanding piece is to define what tier#1 includes.

How do folks feel about ...

* Install Source / URL
* Install Source / NFS
* Install Source / NFS ISO
* Install Source / DVD
* Package Sets / Default Package Install
* Package Sets / Minimal Package Install
* Partitioning / ext3 on native device 	
* Partitioning / rootfs on LVM device 	
* Partitioning / rootfs on RAID1 (not sure about this one)
* User Interface / Graphical Installation
* User Interface / Text-mode Installation
* User Interface / VNC Installation 	

The intent is that the tier#1 test results provide a 10,000 ft view of how usable a given tree is. From there we might dive deeper involving specific hardware setups and complex environments.

Good call John, I agree.
