The Melbourne XO Club meets monthly* to do testing, hacking and general activities around the OLPC.
(* the third saturday of every month except in September, when we celebrate Software Freedom Day instead, and in January - when we hold a social BBQ instead.)
Many thanks to the Welly NZ Testers who have created such a great model for OLPC testing.

What we do
- User testing - if its not easily discoverable it needs fixing
- Bug testing - Activities and operating system
- Testing on XO hardware, we have some spare XO units
- Testing Sugar on a Stick / live CD - bring your laptop
- Keep having fun!
We plan to coordinate with NZ on testing.
Who's got what
Bring your laptop below the testing group. If you don't have an XO laptop, you can emulate the current build of the OLPC environment — Fedora 9 + Sugar + core activities — on your existing computer by running a Live CD or running one of our OS images under emulation.
