There's always more testing to do, and this week is no exception: it's Test Day time again! This Thursday, 2010-03-18, is storage Test Day (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2010-03-18_Palimpsest). Fedora 13 features several improvements to disk management (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/UdisksImprovements), and this Thursday is our time to test them out! Anyone with a computer and a hard disk can do some of the testing, or if you have a more exotic configuration - many disks, RAID arrays, LVM setups, multichannel, SCSI or fibre channel configurations, anything like that - we'd love to get your results. Most of the testing can be done from a live environment, and live images are available for testing. As always, test cases with clear step-by-step testing instructions will be available on the Test Day page, so testing is easy! The Test Day runs all Thursday in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC. You can even connect via Web IRC (http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=fedora-test-day).

Most excellent, I will be there! :)

The Palimpsest feature looks way cool especially for "...support of LVM (and various other improvements) to the udisks and gnome-disk-utility stack..." :)

================================================

I like some of the graphics for the "User Experience" in -

For example, "Connecting to a server" -

and

"Measuring disk performance" -

yeah, there's some really neat stuff in there, it's a big jump over what they had in the F12 version.
