Good afternoon all,

I am interested in singing up for the BugZappers system https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers

Would anyone who is a current member or otherwise be able to confirm if it is acceptable to do tests / triage using a Live USB stick or in some cases use eg VirtualBox as I do not have a spare computer I could setup?

Absolutely!  We are glad that you want to help with what you have.

There has been some criticism of people not using bare metal in the past, but for the most part it should not matter. It really depends on the component you are testing or types of bugs you are trying to reproduce. I'd probably stay away from investigating kernel bugs in a virtual instance, but for most applications or utilities it should be fine. Maybe others agree or disagree?

Please come to our meeting tomorrow if you'd like to get more involved. Details in a separate email.
