Re: F11 Xorg/Mesa/DRI testing proposal

Thanks for the initiative, this is a great project idea!  I'm not an
xorg expert, but some comments below ...

In my experience ... diagnosing, debugging and fixing Xorg issues is
fairly difficult to do remotely.  Especially when the system
hangs/crashes/freezes.  Is there a set of basic information we should
provide the developers to ensure that have all they need to "process"
the defect?

      * What system configuration is under test (smolt profile)
      * What test is being executed (links to wiki tests or piglit
      * Any config or log files captured during testing (messages,
        Xorg.0.log, dmesg)?  
      * Instructions or script to setup kdump for capturing kernel
        crashes (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kernel/kdump)?
      * An optional Xorg debug package or something that enables verbose
        debugging output (if requested by development)?
