=== Background ===
in Fedora the QA team is trying to keep the quality high by having
different states of update packages intended for a maintained release of
The updates-testing repository, contains updates scheduled to be
released for the maintained releases of Fedora. User testing and
feedback provided via Bodhi, on the test mailing list and the relevant
Bugzilla is vital to ensure that good updates are released quickly and
bad ones kept away from release.
Feedback from proven testers  is required for critical path package
=== Task ===
The Geode video driver in Fedora (XO-1)  is one of those critical
path packages. As you see from the link, it already has positive
feedback, so it needs the '+1' from a proven packager in order to get
into the stable repository.
If you are interested in helping out with this specific issue and maybe
are interested in later testing other olpc/sugar related packages in
Fedora that would be great. In case you don't know yet, there are some
interesting discussions going on about incorporating Sugar
and SoaS testing into the QA process .
