Setting up OpenQA testing for GNOME

Integration testing of GNOME, a desktop environment built from more than 200 separate components, is tricky. Since 2010 folk have been working towards better testing, and one outcome is the testing-only VM image "GNOME OS", built from the latest "main" and "master" branches of GNOME.

Now we're trialling OpenQA to automatically detect regressions in GNOME OS as soon as they happen. In this talk, I'll speak a bit about how we got here, where we're going and some tips for getting started with your own OpenQA testing.
