Oh, good reminder on the preupgrade event.

Heads up, Richard Hughes (preupgrade maintainer) has been working on integrating the preupgrade code-base into PackageKit? for a more seemless (cross-distro) user experience. My understanding... there is still some development work going on before the new preupgrade is complete. I don't know whether that work will be completed in time for F15 and the test day date. I also don't know if that updated code base will be pushed into F14, or will be for F15->F16 upgrades. Either way, it definitely makes sense to host another preupgrade event (using either code). They have proven successful in identifying many upgrade hiccups in the past.

I've cc'd Richard for updates on development efforts.

I also had forgotten about preupgrade tests which points to the question testing upgrades with systemd that I brought up on last meeting.

What's our criteria here as in are the test cases for preupgrade for example.

Test1 upgrading from minimal install. Test2 upgrading from all the *de ( default) installs Test3 upgrading from everything install

All issues encounter reported

Or is preupgrade only testing preupgrade itself thus only issues regarding preupgrade itself are reported ( which would exclude systemd for example )?

Replying to johannbg:

This is good to think through ahead of time. Thanks for your comments.

We'll likely uncover upgrade related issues during any upgrade testing (preupgrade or traditional upgrade), but I think we should keep the test day focused primarily on the preupgrade experience. For example, does the preupgrade tool (GUI and TUI) work as expected, does it successfully prepare the system for upgrade, does the upgrade boot and complete without error or minimal user interaction, can the user login to the upgraded system etc...?

While systemd's handling during an upgrade F15 won't be the primary focus for the event, between the upgrade tests from the scheduled install test runs, the preupgrade test day, and the planned systemd test day, I feel like we've got good coverage there.

Just a heads up, the Bug 646843( images/install.img will no longer exist in F-15 and newer) need be fixed to make preupgrade work before the test day date.

Just a heads up, I've created a draft page:

Will further polish it, feel free to add comments.
