Join the QA-Bugdays !

Thursday, June 5th, 2008
A lot of bugsreports are filed every day by our community of users and testers. Because so many get filed,we have a lot of bugs that sit in an “unconfirmed” status. This does not mean that the bugs are unimportant. Rather, this means that no developer or bug triager has been able to either confirm the bug exists or resolve the bug in some form.
On Bugdays we triaging bugs and either confirming or closing them!

Bug Days are an excellent way to contribute to Mozilla’s QA efforts. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been involved with Mozilla for years or if this is your first step into our amazing open source community.  Anyone can participate and be a valuable contributor. We gather together at predetermined times to focus on particular areas in Bugzilla. The exact area or topic for Bug Day may vary week to week. But the general idea is to work through bug list as a team.

The Firefox Bugdays are currently focused on unconfirmed Firefox Bugs filed in the last 2 weeks and expecially focused to confirm or close critical bugs like “crashes” or “hangs”.

You can find the Annoucement and Bugday Query for the next Bugday on Tuesday June 10, 2008 on
