The Testing Core Team will meet on Monday, April 11 at 17:00 UTC on our usual IRC channel. We will be discussing the Open Bugs Day that was held on Saturday April 2. In addition, we will have a post-release discussion of 11.4 to emphasize what was good, and what might be improved during the development of 12.1 between now and its release in November 2011.
There was limited participation in Open Bugs Day, with many fewer workers than the previous OBD. We are not sure of the reasons. Perhaps our target of bugs from 11.2 and older versions did not attract as much interest as the previous effort, when we targeted bugs in 11.4. In addition, last Saturday was reported to be a very nice spring day in Nuremberg and that some potential participants chose to be outside rather than sitting at a computer terminal. Despite the relatively few participants, we updated a large number of bugs. Our tool at http://openbugs.zq1.de/ found a total of 1179 open bugs for versions up to 11.2. Of these, 365 were updated in the Bugzilla pages. Some of these were really old. For example, I found several bugs still open from versions 10.0 and 10.1!
