GNOME OS call for testing (+BuildStream workshop)

Hi all,

As most of you have probably heard by now, our nightly VM images are
ready for wider testing. I'd like to ask at least maintainers of GNOME
core modules to test it.

Core modules are defined in
I'd also like to request maintainers of core modules to review the way
their modules (and their dependencies) are built, and file bugs if the
apps doesn't work correctly or would prefer it to be built with a
different set of options.

The image can be downloaded from

To run it with you distro version of gnome-boxes (or anything that
uses libvirt), first decompress it, then run:
virt-install --name GNOMEOS --boot uefi --video virtio --memory 2048
--import --disk disk.img

To run it in nightly flatpak of gnome-boxes, decompress and convert to
qcow2 using:
qemu-img convert disk.img disk.qcow2
then from gnome boxes, add a new virtual machine, select "GNOME
Nightly x86_64" and select the qcow2 image.

The image uses the "user" variant by default, and can be updated using
GNOME Software, or using the command line:
sudo ostree admin upgrade

If you'd like to try the developer image, use
sudo ostree admin switch GnomeOS:gnome-os/master/x86_64-devel
you can switch back to  the user image using
sudo ostree admin switch GnomeOS:gnome-os/master/x86_64-user

Lastly, I'd like to announce that we're going to do an informal
workshop on using BuildStream to develop GNOME components starting at
16:00 UTC on the GUADEC platform. That's about 3 and half hours from
