This Thursday December 10 will be the first official Zenoss QA Test Day. In honor of the (arguably) most visible feature that shipped with the recent 2.5 release, this Thursday the Zenoss QA team will be holding a test day for the Event Console. We welcome any and all community participation in this.
In addition to the normal #zenoss IRC channel, there will be a new channel #zenoss-testing that the Zenoss QA team will be available to anyone else that chooses to participate. We will focus on the new Event Console - asking for defects, suggestions, improvements, and test cases from the Zenoss Community. You can also post related questions on the zenoss-testing forum and we'll follow threads related to the Event Console there as well. As this is our first test day, we will also be holding a general question and answer session as needed.
For folks that would rather test out our latest alpha release (trunk, currently code-named "Stone Crab") instead of 2.5.1, a trunk build should also be available for this kickoff (likely in RPM or stack installer formats). We'll make an announcement for this once it's available.
The Test Day will kick off at 10am EST and will run through 6pm EST
For those of you that wish to join, we will be running this session on
Server: irc.freenode.net (port 6667)
UPDATE: An alpha trunk build VMware image is available here: http://alpha.zenoss.com/files/zenoss-2.5.70-462-x86-devel-beta.vmware.tar.gz
