The Open-Bugs-Day sponsored by the Testing Core Team was a great success.
Bernhard Wiedermann developed a special Web tool that allowed the participants
to avoid getting in each other's way. This tool presented a list of open bugs
from the Factory and 11.4 lists. For each such item, the user could skip the
patch, take (reserve) it for themselves, or use a link to read the actual bug.
Once a particular bug was taken, it was no longer presented to others.
Bernhard had also prepared a number of virtual machines that teters could use to
test if a given bug was still valid. Others used their own real or virtual
machines for testing.
There were a total of 219 bugs controlled by the tool. Of these, 176 were taken,
and the bugzilla entry for 140 of there were modified. If we use a different
statistic, there were 235 open bugs in the factory and 11.4 MX lists when we
started. After the day was over, these were reduced to a total of 91, which
makes the remaining open bugs a lot more obvious.
By any measure, the effort was a success. The most-active participants, and the
number of bugs taken are Rainer Hurtado Navarro (49), Bernhard Wiedemann (34),
Pieter De Decker (24), Larry Finger (13), Terje J. Hanssen (11), Malvern Star
(10), Karsten König (10), Michal Hucko (9), Refilwe Seete (8), John McInnes (8),
and Jason Craig (8). Thanks to all that participated.
Due to the success of Open-Bugs-Day, a second round is tentatively scheduled for
April 2, 2011. There will be more on that later.
OpenSUSE 11.4 RC2 has been released and testing is under way. So far, things
have gone quite well for me on the 5 installations that I have done. Thus far,
all have been updates, four from 11.4 RC1 and one from 11.3.
The next IRC meeting of the TCT will be 18:00 on February 28, 2011. The primary
agenda items will be a discussion of Open Bugs Day, and our experiences with RC2.
