Bug Day April 2, 2009

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

Bug days are conducted to improve the quality of bugs which have been reported and to reduce the number of UNCOnfirmed bugs in the bugzilla database.


Help shape Thunderbird 3!   Help bug reporters.

component=General bugs ... if you touch one, please change component to something better, even if it's just an educated guess.

Swat, squash, pound, massage, improve unconfirmed bugs. Pick your poison:

  New Old Trunk
tiny <30 days old 17 has comment with hints 17 no response ever 11
big <90 days old 63 prob never had comment 80 probably need version set to trunk 100
bad major + critical 23 superset 271 major + critical 19

No tasty bugs above? See Thunderbird Bug Queries for more ideas of what bugs to chow on.


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.

Searching in bugzilla can be tricky. Quicksearch tricks and Andvanced Search can 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.
