Welcome to the first bug hunt for the 0.91 release. This hunt focuses
on regression bugs.
Traditionally, we specify a point target for us to reach, and award us
points based on the severity of the bug: 3, 6, 9, or 12 points for low,
medium, high, and critical. This bug hunt's goal is 500 points worth of
bugs from the following list:
You'll note a few dozen regressions were already fixed, so we'll count
that as a (207 point) headstart on the effort. Here's a couple more
links to list only the open or closed bugs:
[I'll write a launchpadlib script to calculate the score from the latter
list, unless someone's ambitious and beats me to it!]
We only give points for true bug fixes - not bugs simply closed due to
being dupes, invalid, works-for-me, or whatnot. Once the bug is fixed
in the mainline branch, set its status to Fix Committed, and it'll tally
as a fixed regression.
Bug Hunt Goal: 500 points
Current: 207 points
If you're not a developer, you can still help by seeing if you can
reproduce the bug yourself, and posting your findings.
If you have an idea on how to fix the bug, but don't have the time to do
it yourself, then outlining your thoughts on the bug may help junior
developers pick it up and implement the changes.
If you're an experienced developer, consider posting an invitation to an
IRC bug party for the time period you'll be working, if you're willing
to help pilot junior developers and sponsor their patches.
I will be posting scoring updates a couple times a week until we're
