Mostly I saw them in the mailing lists first, but saw reminders in FWN.

For the ones I participated in (storage and radeon) things seemed fine.

Some related to being pretty busy on Thursdays. For one off tests I don't
see Fedora doing anything about that, but if you do repeats on the same
test later it is probably worth thinking about if it would be better to
keep the followup on the same day of the week to make it more likely that
people who participated in the earlier session can participate in the
followup or if making it a different day of the week to make it more likely
that some people who couldn't participate in the earlier session because
of a conflict would be able to participate in the followup.

I have a local rawhide mirror allowed me to have up to date images for
testing.

The storage test day ended up with some bugs getting filed and fixed.
The radeon day, not so much.

> 6. Would you participate again in future Fedora Test Days?

Yes. Encryption over raid get's messed up fairly often and actively
participating seems to help in getting the issues fixed.
Even though the radeon stuff didn't work out that great this time, I'd
participate again. I think the stuff I am having issues with is low
priority right now, but might get more attention in the future.

Start them earlier in the process. In particular I think this would have
been advantageous for the anaconda storage rewrite.
