Given all recent love and excitement for autopilot I wanted to share the QA community's progress on writing autopilot tests for, celebrate our successes and let everyone know where we still need help.

First let's talk about the ubuntu-autopilot-tests project. As part of the hackfests held at the end of May/early June we were able to complete the transition to autopilot 1.3 of the ubuntu desktop autopilot tests. Thanks to all of the contributors and hackers for helping on this! In addition, we now have a production branch, and the canonical platform QA team is working on adding them to the official smoke testing each day, Great work everyone! That said, tests are still needed, and in some cases the testcases are still basic and not covering many of the application features. There is still room for you to be invovled! Of note is the on-going work to automated our image testing via the UI.

Next, let's talk about the core apps. Last Thursday we held a hackfest to help kickstart testcases for all of these projects. So let's take a look at how far we've come in a week. As a reminder, testcase contributions to any of the core apps is very much appreciated -- there is still a need for you to come alongside and help write tests!

Calculator
There are already several testcases merged in with the main branch, but as one of the most feature complete applications, work and help is still needed in this area. There are currently 6 open bugs for tests needed here. This is a great application to contribute to for someone new to autopilot!

Calendar
There are two pending merge requests and the work is underway towards knocking out the rest of the testcases needed.

Clock/Alarm
The clock team has jumped in headfirst to help with testcases.  You can view the status of the remaining tests needed here.

I started on a branch for this and the basic infrastructure is in place. Branch the application. Grab a copy of the emulator, pick a bug and write your test. This app needs you!

The first merge and test is in review. But there's still more tests to be written. Have a look at the list of needed tests.

Ready and waiting! Check out the list of bugs and have at it! The basic structure is already in place. Simply grab a copy of the emulator, pick a bug and write your test. This app needs you!

Terminal
The first merge request has just been approved and landed for terminal autopilot tests. But there's more features to be tested in this awesome app. Grab something off the list and go. The setup work is already done.

Half of the initial testcases have been started and the first merges are being proposed. Rock on Martin!

Remember you can always view the big master list of all the open tests here. We've got a bit of work ahead of us! Be a part of the team. Grab an open bug from the list above or contact me for help and I'll make sure you get invovled!
