Just a quick post to say that the Konqueror bug triage weekend was a huge success. Some highlights:

  • Getting the number of unconfirmed konqueror bugs (excluding wishes) down from over 950 to below 800.

  • Making konqueror green (ie, more bugs closed than opened) for the last 6 months. Of course, this builds on the great amount of hard work done over the longer term by the konqueror developers and other triagers, but as Adriaan would tell us, it's a nice metric.

  • mafitzpatrick's incredible testcase work. I don't know how he does it...

  • Kurt Pfeifle getting through all the khtml printing bugs

Of course, they weren't the only people working hard over the weekend - illogic-al, bram85 and logixoul did some great work co-ordinating the whole thing, and many more people checked, confirmed and otherwise triaged a lot of bugs. Thanks to all of them!

And some thoughts I had that we can try out next time:

  • Triage newer bugs instead of/as well as older bugs, since they're quite a different kettle of fish - easier in some ways, so nicer for people who haven't done triage before.

  • Make lists of bugs in one particular component, to aid in finding duplicates

  • Someone suggested we do KOffice next. Perhaps putting it here will help us remember :-)

The main bug weekend is over now, but if you want to get involved and help out with bug triage, just drop by in #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net sometime.

More bug triage!

We've got another bug triage extravaganza planned for this weekend, the 6th-7th. So if you're free and you feel like helping KDE, drop by #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net for a bit - it's really easy, and all you need is a recent KDE installation. Some tips on bug triage can be found here.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
