Hi Leah,

Not sure if anyone answered you, but here's how to get started with 
Fluid testing.

1) Go to 
http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Release+Testing+Tasks and 
look on the task list for a test you would like to do - start with High 
priority testing. For instance, you may want to pick the first task on 
the list (which is at the moment, Image Reorderer, Firefox 3.5, Mac OSX 
10.5). Obviously you want to pick a test that is in line with the 
computer setup you have already if you can, but we can help with tasks 
like setting your computer up to test using more than one IE version, 
multiple Firefox versions, older versions of Flash, or whatever if you 
need that help.

2) Grab the task and put it on your task list. The easiest way to do 
that is to edit the page and move the task from the main task list on to 
your list on the right side (I set one up for you). If that doesn't work 
for some reason, just email us and let us know what you are working on 
so that someone else doesn't do the testing at the same time. ***the 
task list page is often flaky, so if you don't see any tasks, reload.

3) Go to 
Have a quick read through of this page to get some idea of what you will 
need to do if you find bugs, etc.

4) Then find the component test plan wiki page using the right hand menu 
on Testing Fluid Components. For instance you will find the image 
reorderer test plan wiki page here: 
Follow the test plan as outlined on that page.

5) When you are done testing, check off the task on the Testing Tasks page.

When I got started, I had lots of questions as I didn't know how the 
components were supposed to work and I wasn't sure sometimes exactly 
what the task on the test plan meant...so hang out in the channel and 
ask lots of questions. If you find something that seems like a bug, 
Justin and others may already be familiar with it, so you can also ask, 
as well as check in the JIRA's to see if the bug was already reported 
(Justin usually likes to know if a new bug is found, so it's always a 
good idea to let him know anyway!)

Hope this helps you get started.
