Sending an announcement to the bug reporters

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

As discussed with Andre & Valerie somewhere some days back, I have sent an email to the 66 reporters of open bugs related to our next QA weekly goal: LiquidThreads bug triage.

Let's see how effective this is. In the pro side the most affected & interested contributors will have more chances to know about the event. In the con side we have a potential risk of people feeling spammed. Let's see if we see a change in participation or complaints.

As a user I wouldn't mind receiving these unsolicited mails. They will be at most one every two weeks, and only if I reported a related bug. Let's see whether this is the general opinion.

Also, I got 2 delivery status notifications. Is this something useful for the Bugzilla admins?

I think this is a very nice idea, 66 people will feel some love is being shoved on their reports. :) Much better than "ping" comments on bugs that end up just adding to bugspam. Many of the reporters (thanks also for this link) are well-known folks that probably are in the loop anyway, but the others are precious targets. ;-)

Yeah, the pings in comments was another experiment but I won't repeat it. The bug activity itself will serve as heads up to whoever is paying attention to bugmail.

I'm glad to hear that the first feedback is positive!
