BugDay Today

Tuesday June 27th, 2000

Asa Dotzler writes, "It's BugDay again! This week we'll be focused on cleaning up Bugzilla. We've got thousands of bugs that need Verification across a wide variety of platforms and the Unconfirmed waters are rising too. So if you're testing current Mozilla builds on an exotic platform/OS, we especially need your help (there are a few thousand mac, linux and win32 bugs that need help too). Hope to see you all there. BugDay can be found on IRC server irc.mozilla.org channel #mozillazine every Tuesday afternoon into evening (USA time)."

Then there will never be a Mozilla 1.0. The same day that you check in the fix for the last known bug you will get at least 10 new valid bugs reported. Also fixing some bugs is high risk. Fixing them is possible, but carries the risk of introducing a dozen new bugs. If the high risk bug is trival is it worth creating new major bugs over? It depends on where you are in the development cycle. Early in the cycle, you can say yes because there's time to fix the new bugs. When you get near release time you have to either resolve these "won't fix" or move them to the next development cycle. I Think moving them is the better choice and that's why I proposed a formal way to do this. I can think of another way. We could do like a certain company and state "That's not an issue, that's an enhancement" A new resoulation catagory could be created "Enhancement" ;-)
