Bug Day July 3, 2008

Schedule for Thursday at Bugdays page, which also tells you how to get started and get help.

Bug days are done to reduce the number of unconfirmed bugs in the bugzilla database, and to improve the quality of the bugs in the database.

Special Notice

Core: Mailnews: * will soon undergo a transformation - all mailnews bugs will move to a new product, Mailnews Core. A major clean up of QA and Assignee will also be done, per draft proposal. We mention this for two reasons: 1. You may get lots of bugmail during this process, 2. We need your help manually triage severity=major+critical bugs. Two groupings:

For each bug:

  1. Can you reproduce the bug with a trunk build?
  2. Comment, especially regarding patches in progress and work still needed.
  3. Cc or assign any parties, particularly devs, who might help push the bug forward
  4. If not closing bug, pick "Reassign bug to default" before committing changes so that QA and Assignee are reset to default


Let's drive these numbers down!

Focus for this bug day - suggested starting points:

You may of course work on any bugs that interest you, including items in Bug queries or this variety pack of leftovers from prior bugdays:


Before starting, see the Bugdays page for information about what to do and how to get help. Don't be concerned if you don't understand everything, just ask for help.

  • Spreadsheet of bugday results is compiled and updated after each session / bugday.
  • The letter Q stands for the query with all the appropriate criteria, which over time may differ from the results that have been logged.
  • [1] Session and period time includes 30mins before and after the official time period, so as to include early and late/spill over activity.
  • [2] A resolution change may be non-terminal, for example a bug may have been reopened.
