=== Background ===
in Fedora the QA team is trying to keep the quality high by having 
different states of update packages intended for a maintained release of 

The updates-testing repository, contains updates scheduled to be 
released for the maintained releases of Fedora. User testing and 
feedback provided via Bodhi, on the test mailing list and the relevant 
Bugzilla is vital to ensure that good updates are released quickly and 
bad ones kept away from release.

Feedback from proven testers [1] is required for critical path package 

=== Task ===
The Geode video driver in Fedora (XO-1) [2] is one of those critical 
path packages. As you see from the link, it already has positive 
feedback, so it needs the '+1' from a proven packager in order to get 
into the stable repository.

If you are interested in helping out with this specific issue and maybe 
are interested in later testing other olpc/sugar related packages in 
Fedora that would be great. In case you don't know yet, there are some 
interesting discussions going on about incorporating Sugar
and SoaS testing into the QA process [3].
