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"

Also, and possibly more significant, talkback is not yet back in the nightly builds, so there's no crash data from people that use those either. That's part of the reason for doing this cleanup drive - to work on the bug reports that have come in while talkback has been lacking.

They're working on getting talkback automation in other builds and automating the production of talkback reports as well, but that's not going to happen in time to fix bugs for the 1.7 release.
