    A dedicated test day for an already stable LTS release kernel is surprising reading, it could easily be covered by updates-testing and bodhi

    Re: Today is kernel 14 test day

    Yes, it's upstream stable. But, Fedora usually pulls in a new kernel version only around x.yz.1 or x.yz.2. Also, with test days, you can have people run kernel tests. With bodhi, that might be difficult (since I think nobody reads bodhi notes).

    So, I think this test day is good for identifying issues.

    I am still testing the Rawhide version of Fedora (to be version 28). There are some interesting improvements. As some software programs are able to run with wayland, there is less need to use gnome-xorg.
    Gparted is one of those.
    There are many other nice improvement things. I wont spoil things by pre-announcing. In comparison, F27, as great as it is, is a stopgap version
