Thanks for the announce!

Some things I noticed while we were going over the test days in the
meeting today:

Prerequisite for Test Day 
* Any system with sectool version >= XYZ. (the more different testing environment we get, the better)
We need to define XYZ - what is it?

If this version is not in the repositories for F10 and F11, we should
provide instructions to install it from updates-testing or a separate
repository or whatever.

There should also be a live CD link for testing. If a regular Rawhide
spin would have all the necessary packages installed, you can just test
the latest nightly spin at
http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/desktop/ and link
to it if it works.

There should be a little brief description of what sectool is in the
'what to test' section - something like "Today's installment of Fedora
Test Day / Fit & Finish will focus on Sectool, which is a tool to do
blah blah monkeys".

The 'How to test?' section is still showing some boilerplate from the
test day template:

"High level details on how a contributor can get involved. This can
include (but not limited to):

      * Areas to target with exploratory testing: GUI, DBus, Sectool
        Tests under different test env.
      * A list of pre-defined test cases to execute: see section 'Test
        Cases'. Additonally you can follow links in the 'Tests Results'
        table header.
      * How to report back results: bugzilla, table in section 'Test

This should be cut out and proper instructions included. I see a bunch
of test situations in the results table, but no info in the 'how to
test' section which explains exactly what to do and how to map your
results to the table.

Thanks! Let me know if you need any help with this.
