What is a test day?

A test day is a short period (about a day) dedicated to a particular test suite.

Theme, process, help: everything is listed on this page, so… It's easy to help! Even if you come along after the test day, you can still do the testing and report anything you find on Bugzilla.

Enough talk, now time to work  ;-)
