Bug Day April 8, 2019
Bug days are conducted to help move bugs toward getting fixed, and to close bug reports which cannot be reproduced. We do this by testing the user's report and by helping the user improve the quality of their bug report - and gently educating users is also a worthy goal. In more fun terms what we do is swat, squash, pound, massage, and stomp bugs into submission.
See the Bugdays page for information on how to get help, how to get started, and schedule.
Today's goal is to work on bugs related to Thunderbird 60 and the future Thunderbird 68, by helping users who have recently reported bugs. Triage bugs from the examples below, or pick any bugs you like. If you need help ask someone in the chat channel.
- unconfirmed, reported in last 90 days, noone commented in last 15 days
- Calendar bugs, recent including closed
- Thunderbird bugs, recent including closed (excluding those listed below)
- Address Book
- Chat/Instant Messaging
- (for the adventurous) Try Thunderbird/Maildir, and report any maildir bugs that are not already reported
Questions about using Thunderbird that are not a bug please send user to Thunderbird support website.
Don't be concerned if you don't understand everything, just ask for help.
If you need help during bug day, or to have friendly chat with fellow volunteers, go to in #tb-qa IRC channel
Searching in bugzilla can be tricky. Quick search tricks might help. Again, please ask on IRC if you still need help.
If you want to do more than help in bug reports you can help users in the Thunderbird/Calendar support forum. Just pick a topic no one has answered and offer advice to a fellow user.
