The OpenStack Infrastructure team hosted our last bug day back in December. Since then, elastic-recheck has become a pretty big deal and the community has had to become more diligent about rechecking against actual bugs in the infrastructure, meaning our bug tracker has been much more active! In general, the team has been doing a better job of keeping track of new bugs coming in, so our stats for today didn’t show the kind of dramatic drop that some might hope for.
But these days are still valuable to us! Even I found a couple bugs where I could offer updates, we were able to take time to triage a bunch of New bugs that hadn’t been touched, and shuffle around priority of many others. It’s a great time for us to get a higher level view of everything on our plates so we can make plans accordingly.
Then I run my simple infra_bugday.py script and populate the etherpad.
Then I grab the bug stats from launchpad and copy them into the pad so we (hopefully) have inspiring statistics at the end of the day. Once bugday makes it into infra proper I hope to update that to include us too, there is a bug for that, and now a review!
Then comes the real work. I open up the old etherpad and go through all the bugs, copying over comments from the old etherpad and making my own comments as necessary about obvious updates I see (and updating my own bugs).
Last step: Let the team go to town on the etherpad and bugs!
Here are the stats from today:
Bug day start total open bugs: 266
- 45 New bugs
- 45 In-progress bugs
- 5 Critical bugs
- 17 High importance bugs
- 4 Incomplete bugs
Bug day end total open bugs: 245
- 0 New bugs
- 46 In-progress bugs
- 5 Critical bugs
- 22 High importance bugs
- 17 Incomplete bugs
Nice work, thanks again everyone!
