Contribute at the Fedora Test Week for kernel 5.2

This is a simple way to contribute to Fedora.

What is a test day (in this case a test week)? Test days in Fedora are days dedicated to test some novelty or some particular aspect in the operating system. Fedora community members often participate, and the public is welcome at these events. If you’ve never contributed before, this is a perfect way to get started. Join #fedora-test-day channel on Freenode IRC to meet, discuss and share experiences with other participants to the event.

From July 22 through July 29 the tests will focus on the new 5.2 Linux Kernel.

How to partecipate? It is pretty simple. Follow the instructions on the wiki, that is: download the Fedora Live test ISO (when it will be ready, to date the image is not yet ready), “burn” it to an USB stick and boot; or boot the ISO inside a VM; or on an working F29 or F30 system you could also install the Kernel packages from Koji or from the kernel stabilization COPR repository. Then run the kernel regression test suite. Finally: open bugs if you find them, and write your results in the result page. Please don’t perform the tests on a production system!
