It seems apparent from the number bugs without a
resolution still exist
in versions 10,0-10,2. A very small number of bugs are closed as Fixed
in 10,3. Looking at the sheer number of open bugs in 10,0-10,2 it would
appear that release of a new version only increases functionality at the
expense of closing and fixing bugs. Can you tell me/us under what
Yes, and this is a problem. The challenge is that some of the bugs are
bugs in the upstream packages and we cannot fix all of these ourselves.
I agree that we're not doing a good enough job in reacting to bugs and
this is on my agenda to change.
situation/timetable you use to determine the
tooling-up for a new
version and what constitutes a RC - given the number of current
bugs. Forgive me I am not offering criticism at all, however Novel's Q.A
compliance would appear at odds with current release pattern of aprox 6
months. Due to my GMT +10 time difference I will be unable to attend the
session and trust that a .PDF may be available afterwards. Many Thanks
for your time.
For the final release candidate, the goal is to ship without any
blockers and we reached that the last releases.
For the alphas, we do basic testing that it installs - but not more.
