We have been discussing for a while about how the development process works in SUMO and what happens with all those bugs that are being filed. As we all know the amazing SUMO developers team is having a hard time keeping up with the huge Bugzilla backlog. This makes it difficult for everybody as new bugs are coming in and old bugs are being left open forever.
In order to help out with this process and try to speed up the implementation of some bugs we are organizing a Bug Triaging Day this Wednesday, March 18th 2015. We’re going to concentrate on closing the outdated bugs, mark duplicates and also prioritize the valid existing bugs. This is a pilot so we’re going to focus only on support forum bugs (the ones filed in the “Questions” and “Forum” components in Bugzilla)
How will this work?
On Wednesday, March 18th at 10am UTC we’re going to start triaging the bugs listed on this spreadsheet. The process is explained below. At this is a 24 hour event you can join in any time and, just open the spreadsheet and start triaging!
How can I help?
It’s easy!! You don’t have to be a super tech person to do it, just follow the process below:
- If you want another option just choose “Other” and leave a comment in the commnets column.
That’s it! Remember: open spreadsheet, pick up bug, try to reproduce issue, update triage status, move to the next bug! Easy, no?
You can find all the information about the Bug Triaging Day on this etherpad.
We have over 100 bugs that need to go through the triaging process so we need all the help we can get! Please sign up on the etherpad to let us know you’re going to join.
See you all on Wednesday!
