BugDay Quality Assurance Event Tomorrow

Monday January 12th, 2004

It starts Tuesday morning and runs through until the evening (USA time). Interested participants are invited to visit the #mozillazine channel on, where members of the Mozilla community will help them file and triage bug reports using Bugzilla, the bug tracking tool. If you've been interested in getting more involved in the Mozilla development process, or have looked at Bugzilla before but found it all a little scary, BugDays are a great way to receive guidance and get your questions answered."

#1 Bug Day?

Bug Day? I thought today was Mozilla 1.6 release day? ;-) I am just joking with ya. Everyone working on Mozilla is doing an excellent job. The nightly builds are stable enough for me to use now for daily work on Linux. Without Mozilla I would have to use Konqueror for browsing and I just don't like that browser.

#2 Good fun

That it was! I probably reduced Mozilla Firebird's UNCONFIRMED list by 10 or so. The first UNCONFIRMED count I saw was ~256, and by the end of my time it was ~240 (some were from others, doubtlessly). I'm still new enough to the bug triaging thing that I just grabbed the *obvious* bugs (remnants of the theme changes from pre-0.7, for a couple), so most were duplicates. I did have a couple that seemed to be legitimate bugs, and there were also a few INVALIDs, which I redirected where necessary if necessary.
