So there are now about 400 regular users. So I should probably become a bit less reckless about pushing out new code so often? Is there anyone out there who would volunteer to be alpha testers? Ideally we’d have a few volunteers so the work any one person would need to do is minimal.
Here’s kinda what I’m thinking (though it would mostly be up to the volunteer testers):
- I only release the android app and device code to the alpha test group initially
- Then sometime in the fiveish days that follow any of the volunteer testers does a basic “sanity” test. i.e. they could send messages between two nodes and see positions on maps.
- If that sanity test passes they post on this thread saying “I just tested 0.6.7 and it seems good to me”
- Based on that info (i.e. someone other than me could run the code), we release the build to everyone else.
Sound reasonable? Anyone want to do this (no long term committment required) ?
