KDE Bugsquad – Okular Bug Day on November 17th, 2018

Thank you to everyone who participated last Bug Day! We had a turnout of about six people, who worked through about half of the existing REPORTED (unconfirmed) Konsole bugs. Lots of good discussion occurred on #kde-bugs as well, thank you for joining the channel and being part of the team!

We will be holding a Bug Day on November 17th, 2018, focusing on Okular. Join at any time, the event will be occurring all day long!

This is a great opportunity for anyone, especially non-developers to get involved!

  1. Mascot_konqi-support-bughunt.pngCheck out our Bug Triaging guide for a primer on how to go about confirming and triaging bugs.
  2. Log into KDE Phabricator and join the Bugsquad!
  3. Join the #kde-bugs IRC channel on Freenode to chat with us in real-time as we go through the list.
  4. Open the shared Etherpad for this event (use your KDE Identity login) to select your block of bugs and cross them off.

If you need any help, contact me!

    1. No, is there a policy I should be following? I have not seen anywhere in the wiki requiring notification to perform triaging.

      The Bugsquad right now just goes through one-by-one, manually reviewing and attempting to reproduce any unconfirmed bugs. So far, maybe 5-6 people show up for the day. You can see what was done via the old Etherpads created for the prior days.

      I didn’t contact the mailing list, as these activities so far have not been disruptive. Maybe about 70 bugs will be looked at. The one time I did contact a team, was Krita, to coincide with their fundraiser. All of the Bugsquad dates and communications are in the open. We have a calendar specifying the upcoming dates here: https://phabricator.kde.org/calendar/query/Tp0Fc0J7sB6v/ (which has information long before I make a blog post about it) and decide on what products to focus on, in Phabricator as well, such as here: https://phabricator.kde.org/T9691 Please feel free to get involved with the Bugsquad if you like.

      If you would like me to cancel the days focusing on Okular, please let me know.

      On a personal note, I’m spending a lot of time and effort to try and help (and bring others in to help) in an area that is not the most enticing at times. I would appreciate it if your communications with me were more cordial going forward.

        No policy that i know of, just common sense, it is not far fetched to think than having some of the developers around seems like it may help with the bug triaging

        Why would anyone want that?

        Welcome to the club 🙂

        I’m sorry if my message did not seem cordial, it was never meant as an attack, more as a suggestion that if you involve the developers the triaging day may end up being more productive than if not.
