Full Article Attached The Gecko BugAThon 300 Starts!

Monday June 28th, 1999

Help Mozilla and win prizes! Many bugs in the bugzilla database are suffering from blank status lines, and need to be resolved to the simplest possible test case. When the coders have to do this themselves, it prevents them from using their time to fix the bug. So, mozilla.org is giving away prizes to people who clean up these bugs by providing "simplest test cases".

The complete rules for the contest can be found by clicking "Full Article" below. Prizes given away by mozilla.org include invitations to the Gecko launch party, Gecko stuffed animals, and autographed Gecko T-Shirts.

So, get cracking, and clean up those bugs!

Go through karnaze's bugs using the link in the full article. There have been some busy people already putting testcases out there. Look at a few good examples. Basically you need to write a page and explain what it should look like when the problem is fixed.

Be sure to put [TESTCASE] in the status whiteboard field when you add your test to bugzilla. Some bugs had the comment added to the description rather than the status whiteboard so it is harder to figure out if a test has already been written.
