Bug Day October 16, 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.


Help our bug reporters by analyzing their problems!

Many unconfirmed (or even confirmed bugs) have duplicates. These bugs have been flagged at some time in the past as possibly being duplicates of some other bug. If you do not find a duplicate, please remove the dupeme flag, and confirm it if you do see the bug (and not an ENH bug).

  • dupeme (79 bugs) Thunderbird, Mailnews Core, Seamonkey Address Book

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.
