About me

  • I am Andre and I'm a bugmaster. In the free and open source software world I spend some time on Wikimedia, GNOME, Maemo, Mer and Mozilla. I live in Europe and I occasionally blog.

My work

I'm Wikimedia's bug wrangler since October 2012. This means I manage issue reports and enhancements requests in the Wikimedia bugtracker (Bugzilla). I "triage" and clean up reports to get them into a valuable state whenever needed, maintain the bugtracker by adding / setting new products, milestones, versions etc, do some Bugsquad community building, and describe and improve workflows and common practices in bug report management. All information on Wikimedia bug management can be found here. This activity is also part of the Release and QA team. (Until 09 January 2013 I just had one user account, Malyacko, for my personal and staff edits. I have split this now.)
Disclaimer: Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated.

Work status updates[edit | edit source]


Apart from usual gruntwork, Andre was mostly busy preparing the Project management tools RfC, handling the testing feedback on Phabricator itself in the test instance on Labs and investigated Phabricator's HTML (to port triagescripts). In Bugzilla, a lot of older WikiEditor tickets were cleaned up.
