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 irc.mozilla.org."

Heh. As someone that uses .zip'ed nightlies, I guess that makes me twice-unlucky. ;-)

Seriously, though, while Mozilla Suite is ultrastable compared to IE (on Win XP and Win2K), I did notice a bit more crashes in the last 3-4 weeks compared to normal. Not often. Maybe once a week with heavy usage (I do exit my browser every few hours, though, when I get up to get some circulation. :-) )

Can't wait 'til the .zip talkbacks come out again. I really want to start sending in some crash reports. ;-)
