Starting on April 15th, 2013 and all week long with a dedicated session on April 15, we are going to clean up old bug reports which have not received updates for more than 18 months.

Old bug reports[edit | edit source]

What: Bug Triage of old non-enhancement reports which have not received updates for more than 18 months - see the full list of reports. We will be focusing on cleaning up, improving the quality of the reports, and retesting some on mediawiki.org or test2.wikipedia.org (in case of some extensions: if they are deployed on the servers).

When: Week of April 15, 2013, with a dedicated Bug Day on April 15 from 16:00 UTC until 20:00 UTC. This is an ongoing activity: you can arrive / leave at any time.

Where: #wikimedia-officeconnect IRC channel. After joining on IRC, say Hello Bug Squad!. Look for users andre__ and valeriej. We will welcome you with instructions and help. Our progress is documented in the Bug Day Etherpad.

Who: Anyone who is interested, including you!

Why: The idea came up in the Bugsquad discussion space.

This is a weekly QA activity organized by the Bug Squad team. Join us!

Evaluation[edit | edit source]

  • Topic too broad. Next time when triaging old tickets restrict to a specific product in Bugzilla (which would also make it easier to identify and reach out to developers again). --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 12:53, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
  • Nobody joining in the last hour - try shorter dedicated sessions (e.g. 90 minutes) and instead two of them at different times of a day, to cover different timezones? --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 12:53, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
