In order to reach as wide a target audience as we have in mind with it, 
please find below a courtesy copy of the latest blog post.


The past months, Mageia has been hard at work getting Alpha and Beta 
releases out for our upcoming release Mageia 2. With Beta 2 out of the 
door, and the release candidate on the way, it is time to reflect for a 
moment on our current situation.

A lot of hard work has been done by a lot of people. Developers, QA & and 
triaging teams, and not in the least beta testers have worked hard to 
improve our distribution to the best of our abilities and to ensure that 
Mageia 2 will become a release for everyone to enjoy.

During the testing, a number of bugs have been found which have been 
marked as release blockers. While we are hard at work on resolving them, 
there still is a lot to be done, and we can’t release while any release 
blocking bugs are still outstanding.

To this end, we’d like to invite everyone to participate in Mageia’s first 
bug squashing party!

The bug squash party will take place this weekend from friday 4 PM CET, to 
monday 10 PM CEST in #mageia-bugsquad on the Freenode IRC network.

We invite you to join in during this weekend to help us fix as many bugs 
as we can! Everyone can help! If you are a packager, we encourage you to 
get outside of your comfortzone and also have a look for example at 
installer bugs, wifi bugs, systemd issues, and so on! As end user you can 
help as well, we are still looking at increasing testing coverage to see 
if we catch all major issues before going gold with our release. Some bugs 
only manifest themselves on certain hardware profiles… if your computer is 
affected by one of these bugs, we especially appreciate your availability 
to help with testing to see if we can squeeze those nasty bugs!

Over the weekend, we will have a special page on our wiki where we will 
track the status of all issues we’re working on, as well as a daily update 
of our progress and work outstanding on the mailinglists -discuss and 

We hope to see you on IRC in #mageia-bugsquad this weekend to help us make 
Mageia even better and make Mageia 2 a rock solid release!
