BugDay Report

Wednesday November 24th, 1999

Asa Dotzler writes in with a report on the first BugDay, which occurred yesterday on #mozillazine.

"First Weekly BugDay a Success

The first weekly BugDay was both fun and productive. Many people showed up including new mozilla users, veterans of the project, Netscape developers, quality assurance team members and even a few wallflowers. People with all levels of involvement and familiarity worked together to find, verify and report new bugs, clarify or add to old bug reports, answer questions, etc...

BugDay proved to be a great opportunity to meet new people and get involved with Mozilla in new ways. New dialogs opened between Netscape developers and 3rd party coders/qa contributers. People new to Mozilla learned more about Mozilla the browser as well as Mozilla the project, helped to root out difficult bugs and learned how to use Bugzilla to search for existing bugs and file new bug reports.

Thanks to everyone that participated. Watch for the next BugDay announcement and till then keep up the bug hunting!

For more information on BugDay keep your browser tuned to mozillazine or stop by IRC at, channel #mozillazine.

Further information and the latest builds of Mozilla can be found at"

Also, the devchat with Dave Hyatt was very informative. I'll try to get the log online today, but more than likely it will be up after the Thanskgiving vacation.

From what I could see, people were really getting into it, enjoying the camaraderie as well as learning a lot about mozilla and bugzilla. I made plans to attend and participate, but then work, sickness, and the difference in time zones got the better of me.

Nevertheless, the little bit i did do and the lurking i did a lot more of while i was doing other things reinforced what a great community there is in the #mozillazine channel and how useful (for everyone, not just the mozilla project) this bugday thing could become.

I sure hope it happens again, because i want to learn how to report bugs with bugzilla!
