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 defunct previous test instance fab.wmflabs.org now redirects to phabricator.wikimedia.org. Diffusion (the Phabricator application to browse code repositories which will repace gitblit in the future) and the notification feature in the top bar of Phabricator were enabled. On November 21st, the migration from Bugzilla to Phabricator started.
