Expand desktop release criteria and validation

Desktop test results were often not available for non-GNOME desktops. This leaves a large exposure come release day (for Alpha, Beta or Final).


The desktop release criteria are specific to GNOME. As a result, there is no incentive to finding bugs in XFCE, LXDE or KDE.

enhancement recommendation

This might be too much for once ticket. Feel free to split this out into more if needed.

Recommend looking for opportunities to improve communication between teams and increasing non-GNOME desktop testing leading up to milestones.

  • The goal is to extend the desktop validation testing introduced in Fedora 13 to cover the main non-default desktops: KDE, Xfce and LXDE.
  • Update appropriate desktop validation content as needed (see desktop validation testing)

I'm looking after this. I'll probably be filing separate tickets for various processes related to this (already we have quite a lot of suggestions for criteria modifications from the other desktop teams).

okay, so I didn't track this very well, but we've implemented a process for doing lxde/kde/xfce validation now and it worked fine for Alpha and Beta.
