Jackson Doak: Announcing the Testdrive Hackfest

Published Aug 2 2013 via RSS

Testdrive is a tool for managing the testing of ISO files, by default, the ones for ubuntu. It acts as a hub for downloading/syncing, creating VMs, and creating live USBs.

It has not had a particularly active development, and is missing a few features that would be really useful. Therefore, with the help of Howard Chan, i will be running a hackfest on the program on August 10th. The wiki page for the hackfest is at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Testdrive/Hackfest . Below are the details.

10:00–16:00 UTC, Saturday, 10th August, 2013 with G+ hangouts run from 10:00–11:00 UTC and 14:00–15:00 UTC.

#ubuntu-quality on freenode and a G+ hangout.

Who to contact:
1000-1200UTC: Noskcaj, 1200-1600UTC: smartboyhw

Where do i get testdrive?
If you want to translate, use the launchpad page. The best way to get the code is the bazaar branch at lp:testdrive, so run bzr branch lp:testdrive to get it. The PyPI repository is at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/testdrive is you need a different way to get the source.

A opportunity to learn and get help with python, PyPi, gtk, bzr and general testing stuff.
