* This is a list of bug reports linked to the wiki results. They don’t have to be reported by that concrete person.
The results are pretty interesting. Bob Lightfoot challenges Andre Robatino’s crown! Together they have more test cases submitted than all the rest of us combined. Huge thanks, Andre and Bob!
I’d also like to specifically thank all community (non Red Hatter) contributors. Besides robatino and boblfoot, namely satellit and konrad have the most results.
Of course, kudos also to anyone else in the matrix. Fedora 18 was a hard and delayed release, and your effort helped us keep its quality up. Especially the new installer interface benefited greatly from lots of testing. Thanks!
If you haven’t participated in Fedora 18 release validation, we would love to see you in the Fedora 19 cycle (the test period will start in a month or so). Follow the announcements, and then please read QA/Join#Release_validation or talk to us in #fedora-qa on IRC.
When reading the statistics, please bear in mind that the numbers are not directly comparable. Different test cases have different complexity. Lots of people test, but they don’t fill in the test case results. Wiki matrices are just a single piece of a large puzzle, people can contribute and test Fedora in a number of other ways, which is not reflected here.
The statistics were generated by the release-test-stats.py script.
