Description

The KDE Bugsquad keeps track of incoming bugs in KDE software, and goes through old bugs. We verify that a bug exists, whether it is reproducible, and that the reporter has given enough information. Our goal is to save developers from doing this, which helps them fix bugs more quickly and do more work on KDE software.

Getting involved in the Bugsquad is a good place to start. An existing member will help you out and mentor you. One of the great things about the Bugsquad and bug triaging is that you do not need any programming knowledge! That said, experience has shown that members of this team learn a lot about KDE and Qt programming during the course of dealing with bug reports, and many move on to developing the software itself. If you are just starting to learn programming, bug triaging is a great way to gain familiarity with the components and give practical support to the KDE community.

For live chat, we have the #kde-bugs IRC channel on Freenode. Please feel free to stop by! You can also connect now via Matrix if you prefer.

To join the Bugsquad, become a member of our project on Phabricator and for team collaboration. We organize Bug Days, where we focus on a specific product, with the goal of reviewing all open bugs by the end of the day. These meetings occur primarily on #kde-bugs.

We have a Bugsquad calendar you can view, or export as ICS to your calendar of choice. The calendar lists all of the upcoming Bug Days and what product we will be focusing on. These days are great times to get involved and ask questions!

I made lot of triage in Kdenlive bugtracker. I think it's a bid tricky on which version to concentrate: 18.12 or the upcoming refactoring release. My suggestion would be: Bugsquash should concentrate on the marked 70 Junior-jobs. But ask JBM about as well.

I made some tweaks to the list based on @xyquadrat's observations on bug load.

@acrouthamel I was just thinking about the fact that we need to kick off some more Bug days for this year when I saw the notification that you were a tiny bit faster than me... :)
List sounds very reasonable, and I do agree that it is important to contact as many of the developers in advance to ensure we are as efficient and productive as possible. My only concern is that we might not have enough KCalc bugs to triage for two sessions, so we might need to search an additional alternative. Are we going to keep the two-week-rhythm?

Yeah, good point, maybe we combine ark with kcalc since they're both small. I wanted to pick some easy, smaller ones that were common utilities, since activity was light end of 2018. Open to suggestions. :)

One question though: are the projects which bugs we triage aware of the plan?
I got the feeling last year a few times that there was no communication of us and the team (e.g. Krita).

It's indeed important that developers get involved beforehand. Especially digiKam developers, because they have long established bugzilla practices.
