The Sakai 12 QA Hub is the home page for the Sakai 12 QA effort.
We are testing 12.1 RC01, the a release candidate for Sakai 12.0. If RC01 completes the next round of QA testing without any blocker bugs RC01 will become Sakai 12.1 GA. GA stands for general availability and will be the latest community supported release.
The QA server is on nightly2.sakaiproject.org and is called Sakai 12.1 Release testing server - RC01 .
