What I'd love to see is a closer collaboration between regular bug
triagers and nova-core members.
i.e. bug triagers doing the best they can but roping in willing
nova-core members to help out deciphering the more gnarly bugs.
Personally, I'd really appreciate people helping me figure out which
bugs I can best help with.
Indeed, there are a lot of things in Nova that require a bit of special
expertise / setup to triage, and that would be deciphered best by a
I generally use tags on New bugs I don't understand to attract the
attention of specialists in that area. For example, "lxc" from
LXC-specific stuff, "securitygroup" for security groups, or "xen" for..
well.. Xen. And I'd like to encourage everyone to use the "rootwrap" tag
when they get onto a bug that I would probably triage in an instant.
Then developers can look for New bugs with the tags that they're experts
with and help where they bring the most value, rather than randomly.
I'd say that we need someone to coordinate that, a Nova bug master if
you want. I used to have enough time to (admittedly badly) fill that
role, triaging and routing bugs, but you can tell by the graph that
since February I don't have enough free time for that anymore. We need
someone that would advocate for triaging, organize events, identify
experts, create tags and encourage their use, control members of the
nova-bugs team, catch the corner cases and raise priority for critical
issues... This is critical for Nova to reach the next step in quality:
anyone up for the job ?
