Main menu bug fixing week --- final status
First of all, many thanks to those who participated in the bug fixing
We started by creating a package in the build service in Federico's
project. This package was used throughout the week to test patches
and get builds.
Scott then took all the main-menu bugs in Bugzilla, and split them up
in performance bugs and behavior bugs. We had three performance bugs,
and a ton of behavior ones :)
We started by pulling in some patches that had been available for some
time, but that had not been integrated into our package for openSUSE
10.3 for various reasons: code freezes, uncertainty on the
correctness of the patches, ripples in the time-space continuum, etc.
These bugs are:
#152846 - Incorrect hard drive space shown for LVM volumes (Federico's patch)
#236463 - Better date info for documents (JPR's patch, also hacked by Lukas)
#258361 - Libslab.pc lists too many dependencies (Andreas Hanke's patch)
#332418 - Clarify the purpose of the "Hard Drive" tile (Magnus Boman's patch)
Then we started actually fixing bugs.
Ivan Zlatev and Lukas Lipka did most of the hacking. Thanks to them
we have patches for these:
#349604 - Display renamed bookmarks correctly (Ivan)
#309058 - Add "remove from favorites" command to Places items (Lukas)
#184735 - Improve "install/uninstall" logic for third-party applications (Ivan)
#310710 - Computer label is cropped (gtk2 bug - Federico)
Each of these patches was kindly tested by the #opensuse-gnome
regulars: suseROCKS, cyberorg, Iznogood, and others (sorry if I
missed your name here!).
Along the way we were able to close some old bugs which had already
been fixed, but which no one had noticed.
There is some work in progress:
* Lukas and Ivan are still hacking on some bugs around the document
and directory tiles.
* Michael Meeks and Magnus Boman have some optimizations for loading
* Federico is hacking on making thumbnails load faster.
Overall, I'd call the bug fixing week as very successful.
* Monitoring the patch status and link to build repositories in the wiki.
* Our tireless testers, always eager to break their machines.
* Our tireless hackers, always eager to unbreak other's machines.
What didn't work:
* All those slackers who went to the beach, or to do holiday shopping,
or to spend time with their families, or to engage in cultivating
activities of the human spirit, instead of trawling through bugs.
* Finish doing all the performance work that is in progress.
* Usability / functionality. Do we want something like Gimmie /
* Usability testing of Magnus's work on the application browser.
