OCS 2.1 Testing Volunteers Required

Postby kstranac » Fri Mar 07, 2008 10:52 pm

Interested in getting a sneak preview of the upcoming changes in OCS 2.1? Want to get a head start on installing the new files on your system? If so, please join the OCS 2.1 testing team and put the latest version of OCS through its paces!

As part of ensuring that this new version of OCS is ready for general release, we would like to ask you to consider volunteering to do some testing of the software. The testing will take place over a two week period, beginning in mid to late March. The exact dates will be finalized soon.

We will need volunteers to either do their own installation on a web server (which we need tested on a variety of platforms), or to work from a pre-existing installation that we will set up on the web for users. That is to say, that if you are unable to install OCS 2.1 yourself, please let us know and we can provide access to a demonstration version for you.

We can also send you a basic testing script, outlining some of the features we would like to see tested.

We are looking for a variety of people to participate in the testing, with technical skills ranging from novice to expert, so please don't feel that you or others on your team are in any way inappropriate for this crucial task. If you have collaborated with other parties in your use of OCS, please consider passing this invitation along to them as well.

We hope that you will seriously consider devoting some of your valuable time to this worthwhile endeavour, not only for the opportunity for a first look at the new version, or the chance to get any bugs that may arise on your own system resolved quickly, but to make a contribution to the open source, OCS community that is vital to this particular form of a commons-based knowledge economy.

If you are interested, please contact me to sign up.

Thanks for your offer to help with our testing. We have now completed this testing cycle and released OCS 2.1. We'll be looking for more testers for the next releases of both OJS (later this month) and OCS (later this year). Send me an email directly if you are interested, at kstranac@sfu.ca
