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.)
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.

The "Commons App" product was closed as no further development is planned currently. A new product was created for the new PDF renderer infrastructure and numerous components were created.

Phabricator[edit | edit source]


The certificate for for file uploads is in place. Daniel and Chase fixed an error when trying to log in via HTTP, the footer required by Legal was set up with its license, terms of use and correct links. Chase configured inbound email, fixed an issue with not being able to set the profile picture, customized some strings, made the reference in a ticket to its previous ticket system read-only. Daniel added IPv6 access to, Reedy added phabricator to the interwiki map, and Helder ported the 'tracked' gadget on MediaWiki to query the Phabricator API. In addition, Quim improved the Phabricator documentation and help. Andre showed the very basics of Phabricator in a video. Once the remaining dependencies of T463 are resolved and the custom OAuth provider is deployed, registration will be open for everybody.
