A lot of users do not know what to test and they see only a long list of available Bodhi updates but can’t decide where to start.
What to test section
I’ve discussed this problem with my mentor and Fedora Gooey Karma has What to test section now. This section will be start point for testing the new updates. It contains several tools which I will describe in their own section.
Updates with negative karma
This tool provides a list of updates which has one negative comment at least. These are a very good candidates to test.
Currently running applications
This tool will monitor running processes and match them with available Bodhi updates. For example if you are running Firefox and there is Firefox in updates it will suggest you to test it because you are using it. There is a high chance that you know how to test it when you are using it right now.
Favorite and ignored packages
You can add your favorite packages and Fedora Gooey Karma will remember it and if this package would have available update to test it will appear in this list. There is also a list of ignored packages. If you add some package to this list it will no longer appear in package list on the left with Bodhi updates.
As Fedora Gooey Karma is getting new features it’s very hard to make it simple and user-friendly as well. Tools mentioned above are separated to new tab now. Currently selected update is next to it.
Opened update contains other 3 tabs with main info, comments and tools/settings. The last tab contains buttons to open bodhi update in browser or to download source RPM.
