I tried out 12.1.0 on my new XO 1.75 (thanks Fedora!). I have run across
a bug with playing Wesnoth in full screen. The screen turned mostly grey.
Where would I file a bug for this?

How likely are the 13.*.* builds to work? Do the published builds get
smoke testing before they are made available for downloading?

It depends, if it's a bug in wesnoth on ARM then to wesnoth in BZ, if
it's a problem with X to the <a href="mailto: ... at lists dot laptop.org"> ... at lists dot laptop.org</a> mailing list as
the X driver is currently closed (and from there likely to the
dev.laptop.org trac instance)

They get basic testing, they are certainly usable and in my opinion
where the testing should be directed. The new releases are usually
reported to the olpc fedora lists [1] and it's a quite list but a
number of us are always there to respond. The latest F-18 13.1.x pre
releases can always be found here [2].

Great! We just posted our first F18 development build for the next
release which will be called 13.1.0.

I assume you have an XO with security disabled (i.e. you can reach the
Ok prompt <a href="http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ok" title="http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ok">http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ok</a> )

Subscribe to the OLPC devel list: <a href="http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel" title="http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel">http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel</a>
This is where we announce development versions.

Here are instructions for downloading and installing the first 13.1.0
development release.

Feel free to ask for help either on this list or on the olpc devel list.

When testing, you can send test reports by email to the OLPC devel
list. If you have experience with a bug tracker you can also file bugs
directly, see <a href="http://wiki.laptop.org/go/13.1.0#Bug_reports" title="http://wiki.laptop.org/go/13.1.0#Bug_reports">http://wiki.laptop.org/go/13.1.0#Bug_reports</a>
