[Xen-devel] Building Xen Test Days into the conclusion of the Xen 4.3 release cycle

Hi everybody,

I wanted to follow up on George's e-mail (Xen 4.3 development update CODE FREEZE at http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2013-04/msg02142.html). One way we can facilitate the goal of

 1. Have a bug-free 4.3 release

... is to build in some Test Days into the coming weeks. This worked well for Xen 4.2 RC2 as well as XCP 1.6. What we do need though is a good set of test instructions for Xen 4.3 : examples for last time round were
- http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_4.2_RC2_test_instructions
- http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XCP_1.6_test_instructions
We have a document day coming up next Monday, which would be an ideal day to put together Xen 4.3 RC test intrstructions. I remember we got a lot of test coverage for 4.2 RC2 as well as XCP 1.6.

Having a predictable schedule around RC's would also help. It appears to me that maybe one test day every other week starting from the first RC (planned for May 6th would work) ... we could do the test day 1-2 days after the planned RC's to provide for a buffer should an RC slip.

That would give us dates for Xen Test Days for May 8, May 22 (not clashing with Hackathon), June 5 (with RC's planned 2 days before).

Views? Should I start announcing the dates and promote the Test Days? If so, I need some commitment on getting good Test instructions as well as a good sense that RC's are possible for these dates. If so, I would like to announce these by the end of this week.
