Test Day April 09, 2009
Protect your data and consider using a test profile to avoid potential dataloss.
Focus and Testing
Due to a few technical issues the features that were to be tested today are not available for testing. Instead we would like to work on 133 bugs where the development team as asked for help.
So what do you need to do ?
- Grab a recent nighlty of thunderbird
- peek at the list of bugs
- choose one bug - try to be random so that everybody does not end up working on the same bug
- read the bug - and try to reproduce it - find an easy and straight forward way to reproduce the issue ( like set xxx to yyy, then do a,b,c and the bug is reproduced)
- add a comment on the bug telling how you reproduced
- adding the comment I can't reproduce is also valuable
- remove the qawnted keyword on bug with UNCO state unless you feel the issue is serious.
- Don't heistate to use the whiteboard to pinpoint things that you think are important on those bugs
Need to discuss the bug
Please join us on :
- #tb-qa channel on mozilla irc
