Working with Ubuntu

1801 Bugs

Posted in Bug Squad, MOTU, ubuntu-planet by nigelbabu on March 16, 2010

As of writing this post, there are 1801 bugs with patches attached in Launchpad that are not Fix Released or Fix Committed and do not have branches linked.  This tells me 2 things:  (1) There are some amazing contributors out there coming up with patches. (2) We have not been clearing up the backlog of bugs with patches attached.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to change this situation by reviewing some of the bugs with patches attached.  Well, we need help and everyone are welcome, especially people working towards being an Ubuntu Developer (like me).  Patch review needs your help.  Right now, we’re focussing on all the bugs that have ubuntu-reviewers team subscribed.  This helps us get any potential patch in Lucid.

If you want to help, check out the Code Reviews wiki.  When stuck, pop by on #ubuntu-motu channel and mention you’re working on patch review and are stuck, I’m sure someone would be around to help you out.

PS:  Hello Planet Ubuntu, my first post after being an Ubuntu Member.

    Guess what ? I never did it again :)

      I understand the feeling. We have been working to get to the patches, but you do see the enormity of the problem right now.

      I’m checking out the patch you submitted. If we’re lucky, it may come out in Lucid.
