Announcing Istio 1.5 Testing Days


As part of preparing for the final Istio 1.5 release, we have planned two community testing events. The first community testing event has been scheduled for February 18, 2020 and the second one on February 25th, 2020 from 10am - 1pm PST. The testing event dates with call-in information are on the Istio Community Calendar. We will be using the Istio 1.5 Community Testing Sign-up Sheet to track all the testing efforts for this release.

Please use the signup sheet to signup for testing using your GitHub ID. We will be using these two testing days to complete the review and testing of the docs and to write automated test cases where applicable. The Getting Started sheet in the spreadsheet contains links to videos and tutorials to help you get familiar with the test framework to write automated test cases.

We appreciate all your help with testing the release candidates for the 1.5 release and for helping us ensure the completion of a successful release. Thank you.

From the 1.5 release managers:

We have changed the time for Day-2 of 1.5 release community testing from 10am-1pm PST to 8am-12pm PST to accommodate our friends from Europe to also join us in the community testing event.

Thank you.
