The Pitivi community is very happy to announce the availability of easy to use, distro-independent Linux bundles to test latest version of the application. This eliminates dependency problems and allows quicker testing cycles. Our entire stack is bundled, so the only requirement is glibc ≥ 2.13. Simply Download the bundle and run it! This is the first delivery of the Pitivi Fundraiser—as you can see, we are already well on our way to deliver what has been promised in our detailed planning.

We are proud of that partnership, as we share their objective of “creating a free software computing platform for the general public”, and the foundation is excited as well:
