Default Call for Testing nvidia drivers for Ubuntu users

Hi everyone,

There is a call for testing for those of you who want to help test nvidia drivers for the upcoming ubuntu 11.04 release:

Link to mailing list post:

Hi All,

Do you have a *nVIDIA* graphics card? Do you want to help ensure users
have a smooth experience if they choose to use the proprietary drivers?

We are looking for committed volunteers to test nVIDIA proprietary
drivers on a weekly basis. The goal of this testing is to catch
regressions and fix bugs before they reach a major audience.

If you want to be part of the team you will need:

1. A computer with an nVIDIA (GeForce 7 or newer) graphics card
2. A spare partition on that system
* If you don't have a spare partition you can easily create one.
3. One hour of your time per week
4. An Internet connection

If you want to take part in this adventure, go to:
and follow the detailed instructions.

No time to lose, the first results will analysed by Wednesday!

We will coordinate testing in #ubuntu-testing on freenode. Please, go
there often to see what others are testing or what needs to be tested.

Thanks for helping making Ubuntu even better!

P.S. This project is to test the proprietary drivers. If you're
interested in testing the free drivers, we don't need installation
testing but help is always welcome. Check how at the Ubuntu X team page [1].
