Unfortunately the unstoppable Ara Pulido is not (yet) on Planet Ubuntu, so here’s the announce of Ubuntu Testing Day:

We are pleased to announce the first Ubuntu Testing Day, that will be next Monday, September 22nd.

The Ubuntu Testing day is a special day where the Ubuntu Community comes together with a shared goal of testing an specific set of ISO images (Alpha, Beta, RC, Gold or Point releases). Taking the idea from the Ubuntu Bug Day, we want to apply the same concepts to ISO testing.

Who can join the Testing Day? Everyone. You don’t need to be a developer. You don’t need to know how to code. Everyone is welcome. If you don’t know how to help, then just stop on by and we’ll explain everything to you. In fact, one of the objectives of the Testing Day is to help people willing to start testing Ubuntu to make it better.

Where to join the Testing Day? Come to #ubuntu-testing on freenode IRC. We will be there day and night resolving your testing questions you might have. You can even ask for help on creating new automated tests for Ubuntu!

Normal testing activity takes place in #ubuntu-testing at other times also.

Which release we will be testing? We are testing the Intrepid Alpha 6 release. Please, refer to the ISO tracker for links to the CD images.
