MediaWiki Group Bug Squad
This ongoing group welcomes anyone interested in monitoring, reproducing, and verifying bug reports in Wikimedia's bugtracker. Members will work with Wikimedia users and developers to help locate, confirm, and fix bugs within Wikimedia's projects features.
We hope to integrate the Bug Squad Wikiproject into this group.
This group will be involved in holding public Bug Days -- an event where developers, Bug Squad members, and anybody else interested in assuring the quality of bug reports collectively validate, assign and prioritize reported issues and enhancement requests.
General Activities include:
- coordinating, triaging, and organizing the current bug reports in Bugzilla
- writing documentation for bug management
Areas of collaboration:
- (((List the topics or activities you want to relate this group to)))
- The original Bug Squad WikiProject is inspired by KDE's Bug Squad.
Who is interested
- MediaWiki groups need at least 3 people to be approved.

- To keep Wikipedia running flawlessly, its important to fix bugs of mediawiki and for that u need to first identify them. That's why I'm here. - Samkit (talk) 19:59, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
- I am helping creating this group because I think it fits perfectly in our QA & Testing goals and also in the idea of MediaWiki thematic groups.--Qgil (talk) 18:37, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
- All bugsquads in other free and open source projects I've been involved with were fun, because of the great people you work together with, the bugs that are sometimes a bit shy to show up when you try to reproduce them, and because it's an easy entry point to start contributing and giving something back to a project that you like. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 19:16, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
