We are calling for help for the final OSGeo-Live testing sprint, this
weekend, 9-10 August 2014. We really want OSGeo seasoned developers to
find any outstanding issues, rather than having them found in workshops
or by new users in the released version.
So please consider joining our testing-sprint to verify everything
works. (The many testers in our last sprint made a big difference to
quality of our 50+ applications)
1. Sign up
2. Download ISO
from: http://osprey.ucdavis.edu/downloads/osgeo/gisvm/gisvm/8.0beta1/ or http://aiolos.survey.ntua.gr/gisvm/8.0/
3. Chat about your progress with us at: irc://irc.freenode.net#osgeolive
4. Update your testing status
We aim to have each application tested by both someone familiar with it,
and someone less familiar.
We will be checking in daily
on irc://irc.freenode.net#osgeolive at: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meetingdetails.html?hour=20&min=30&sec=0&p1=179&p2=189&p3=224&p4=22&p5=240&p6=196&p7=215
And you will likely catch one of our core team on IRC outside this
timeslot as well.
