I’m not absolutely sure that this is the proper category to post this message in, as I am not familiar enough with your overarching internal structure divisions. (I was originally leaning toward QA, but I did locate a reference to seeking testers in here, and that was the best indicator I was able to find.)
I wanted to approach you with the prospect of volunteering as a tester.
Originally I became involved with pre-PC computers via the Burroughs 5500 and the IBM 360/370 series. Through the advent of the PC, I’ve been using OpenMandriva since its inception, Mandriva previous to that, and originally Mandrake 8.0 on 5-1/4" floppies. I have dabbled with quite a few Linux/Unix variants during that time, and still do, but the Mandrake/Mandriva/OM lineage stands out as the sole constant I’ve remained with continuously.
I currently am running Lx 3.03 and 2014.2 on separate bootable dedicated drives on a desktop machine and laptop notebook, and I already have another dedicated drive prepared for Lx 4.0 as soon as it becomes available.
I would like to offer my services as a tester, beta or otherwise. I don’t know how well I would be able to provide testing focused by directive, but I would be glad to provide information covering my experiences with the range of software that I use in furtherance of my purposes, which presently involves scientific, engineering, design, writing, and general purpose standard business applications.
I wanted to cooperate with the OM venture, because I benefit from the success of the project, and the forum community has been most helpful to me. This arrangement might prove to be reciprocally beneficial.
If this idea would be of interest to you, please let me know, and thank you all for your continued efforts resulting in a consistently fine O/S and distribution package.
PS - I started out wanting to make a suggestion regarding a feature that I would like to see implemented in future releases, but I have no idea where that post belongs.
