[maemo-community] Community Testing Squad (Sprint task:10.01-02)

From: Valerio Valerio vdv100 at gmail.com
Date: Wed Jan 27 01:05:23 EET 2010

Group created: https://garage.maemo.org/projects/testingsquad/

We're looking for committed members for the testing squad that can spend
some time testing stuff, and also leading the testing squad in some
weeks(that would be easy :) ). Feel free to request membership at garage.

Those that doesn't feel ready or without enough skills, please keep
following the group activities and doing some testing in the easier areas.

More news soon.

Best regards,

Valério Valério
