Bug management/Office hours how-to

From mediawiki.org

This page explains how to run IRC Office Hours on bug management.


  • Add an entry to http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC_office_hours
  • Announce on appropriate mailing lists a day before (e.g. wikitech-l@ for bug management office hours).
  • Ten minutes before it starts, also announce on IRC in #mediawiki, #mediawiki-dev, #mediawiki-office and any other appropriate IRC channels


  • Update the IRC channel topic; channel MUST announce that it is being publicly logged
  • Explain what will happen this hour, ask who is around:
Welcome to the IRC office hour about bug management that will take place here in the next hour! Thanks for showing up!
I plan to talk a bit about the latest stuff that has been worked on, and plans for the future.
General info and documentation can be found on http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bug_management as usual.
So who is here for the office hour? Please raise your hands. :)
What I've been doing lately is shown on http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bug_management/status 
but I am going to summarize and elaborate on the most interesting latest stuff:
  • Talk about achievements since the last office hour
With regard to the task list and plans for next months, see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bug_management/Task_list
  • Highlight a few plans and explain
Does that feel right to you?
  • Then open general questions and discussion etc.
