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 (Phabricator). 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. (Until 09 January 2013 I just had one user account, Malyacko, for my personal and staff edits.)
Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.

Work status updates[edit | edit source]

Bug management[edit | edit source]


The Phabricator documentation received many video screencasts. Consistency of edit and view policy was clarified. In Phabricator's taxomony, the MediaWiki release tags were renamed, a Documentation tag was created replacing the previous tracking task, tasks related to HTTPS were reorganized, and the Mobile App project names received small changes.

Phabricator[edit | edit source]


Phabricator was updated which fixed more than a dozen of bugs and requests in Phabricator itself. The Sprint extension and the Security extension received larger changes; authors of private tasks migrated from Bugzilla can now always access these tasks. The Multimedia team and the Fundraising Tech team started to use Phabricator for sprint planning. Future maintenance of Phabricator was clarified.
