Today is Fedora bug day again. Come to #fedora-bugs on freenode IRC and
help with the triage effort and stamp out some bugs.
In the last weeks (or actually months) I've been working on a tool to
assist me in my triage efforts. I call it bughunt. It's a front end for
bugzilla which lets you categorize bugs for a particular component. This
might be helpful in getting some grip on the multitude of bugs that are
still in bugzilla.
Since I am quite sure I stamped out (most of) the cross site scripting
and SQL injection bugs I finally opened up bughunt to the public. Please
have a look at http://www.ottolander.nl/bughunt/
and see if this tool
can be helpful to you. Red Hat developers are specifically invited to
see if this tool can be of any use to them in their struggle with
I have done some sorting on the bugs for some of the components to give
you an impression of how this tool can be used. These components are
rpm, mc and gnome-panel. If you want to test the interface please use a
different component, and if you want to do some real work on a component
I would appreciate it if you could let me know this on #fedora-bugs.
Another way is to just put your name in the package comment field, so
people can see you are doing "real work" on the particular package. Of
course people can agree on working on a component together but that
would need agreement on which categories to define and use.
Please have a look and let me know what you think of this tool.
