* Run BugTriage days more often ?
We could have regular (monthly?) Nova Bugtriage days to get rid of what
accumulated in the mean time. But I fear that urgent bugs might not get
the attention they deserve, and that over time less and less people
participate to those exciting events...
Just after F2 we'll run a Bug squashing day (more about that in a
separate email), where the focus is on closing as many bugs as possible.
We should encourage bug triaging to happen on that day too :)
* Should we just encourage more people to do BugTriaging ?
Sounds like the obvious solution. However to do good triaging, you need
bug supervisors rights, and when I proposed to open that team (the
nova-bugs team) to anyone, there was resistance. Maybe it makes sense
for Nova though... or maybe someone should actively manage that team and
grant rights to any known triager that needs them.
Lets just open it up for now and approve everyone in the current queue
The team is now open, anyone familiar with Launchpad and Bug triaging
is welcome to join at . Let's triage all New/Undecided bugs now !
A formalized way for triagers to mark tough bugs for review by core would be great. Then a core duty of sifting through those bugs makes sense.
I'd recommend that we use tags for that. We already use tags to
categorize with area of expertise with Nova is actually required to
handle the bug, so Xen experts should look into "xenserver" tagged
bugs, etc. I guess that in addition to that, level-1 triagers could
require core developers to look into an incoming bug using a generic
tag... "level2" ? "expert-needed" ?
