Week-Long Effort to Clean Up Bugzilla Crash Bug Reports Starting

Sunday March 28th, 2004

In a weblog posting, Asa Dotzler announces a new effort to triage crash bug reports: "I'm going to be working to organize a week long bug cleanup effort for reported crashers. We have many hundreds of crashers reported in Bugzilla which need confirmation or resolving. With Talkback in 1.7 beta, we can easily get stack traces for reproducible crashers and that should help us resolve quite a few duplicate reports. Starting with Tuesday's BugDay, and going through the end of the week, I'll be available to help newbies and veterans alike as we slog through hundreds of bug reports and try to get a real fix on known stability problems in advance of 1.7 branching. If you're interested in being a part of this effort and need help getting started, join us on Tuesday in #mozillazine on"

Unfortunately, the talkback agent is not included in the tar and zip distributions, which I and probably many others prefer because of the easy way to update to a newer buld. Unfortunately, it is probably the power users, whose crash data are thus missing.
