[Test-Announce] [Call For Action]: Fedora Media Writer Test Day 2016-09-20

Hey Testers,

Tuesday 2016-09-20 will be Fedora Media Writer Test Day[1]! As part of this planned Change[2] for Fedora 25, the Fedora graphical USB writing tool - formerly called "Live USB Creator", which is  being re-branded as "Fedora Media Writer" - is being extensively revised and rewritten. The idea is the new tool will be sufficiently capable, reliable, and cross-platform usable that it can be the primary download for Fedora Workstation 25: the main 'flow' of the Workstation download page will run through the tool, instead of giving you a download link to the ISO file and various instructions for using it in different ways. This would be a pretty big change, and of course it would be a bad idea to do it if the tool isn't ready.

So this is an important Test Day! We'll be testing the new version ( Fedora , Windows and Mac ) of the tool to see whether it's working well enough and catch any remaining issues. It's also pretty easy to join in: all you'll need is a USB stick you don't mind overwriting, and a system (or ideally more than one!) you can test booting the stick on (but you don't need to make any permanent changes to it).

All the instructions are on the wiki page, so please read through and come help us test ! As always, the event will be in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC.
