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.

Phabricator[edit | edit source]

2014-09-16:

The Phabricator production instance with tickets imported from now-defunct fab.wmflabs.org has been set up but remains read-only until Operations has finished setting up SNI on misc-web-lb and redirecting to HTTPS, Legal has blessed the required footer, and upstream has merged the Mediawiki OAuth provider. Daniel and Yuvi set up a new Phabricator test instance on https://phab-01.wmflabs.org/ that anybody can play with. In addition, work is going on to improve the Phabricator documentation and help.
