Bug Day September 4, 2008

How to get help, how to get started, and schedule for Bugdays.

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


Let's help our bug reporters by driving these numbers down!

Patch Love focus continues. Over 200 bugs have patches that possibly need assistance to get the patch in for Thunderbird 3. Patch Love outlines how you can triage and assist such bugs. We suggest you sort the resulting queries below by component, and then work on bugs whose components you best understand or most care about:

Unconfirmed bugs also need attention:

Other bugs that may interest you, from Bug queries or a variety 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.
