Other projects are publishing their Bugzilla stats, so I took 30 minutes and threw together a script to run some numbers against our Bugzilla instance.
Two things to keep in mind when looking at these numbers:
We migrated our bugs from Trac to Bugzilla in mid-August. Trac wasn't working out for us and we've got a lot of crufty bug data still hanging around since then.
The numbers are slices of data. They can indicate things, but there's a lot of context that they don't take into account. So it's good to be careful about drawing conclusions based solely on the numbers reported.
Stats for the year: 2007 BUG STATS ========= Total bugs created: 4052 41 - Miro Mediabar 3 - getmiro.com 35 - Broadcast Machine 3809 - Miro 164 - Miroguide Bug activity: 736 - FIXED 170 - INVALID 35 - WONTFIX 139 - DUPLICATE 169 - WORKSFORME 0 - MOVED 0 - NEEDSINFO 4052 - CREATED 13564 - COMMENTS USER STATS ========== Users created: 645 Top 7 bug reporters: 3172 - Janet 138 - Dean Jansen 102 - Nicholas Reville 52 - Nick Nassar 47 - sg 35 - Fluteman 28 - Ben Dean-Kawamura Top 7 bug commenters: 10354 - Janet 331 - Nick Nassar 315 - Will Guaraldi 312 - Ben Dean-Kawamura 286 - Luc Heinrich 259 - Dean Jansen 217 - Paul Swartz
There are a few things I want to point out.
First, is that we've got 645 new Bugzilla users since mid-August. That's really great!
Second, is that Janet is not a machine that generates 10 bugs and 30 comments every day. What's going on is that I tied her Bugzilla userid to all the bugs I migrated from Trac for which I had no userid to tie to.
Third, sg and Fluteman are really fantastic. The work they're doing is making a huge difference in the direction and quality of Miro. Thank you!
Thank you to everyone who's helped out in 2007. I hope the numbers for 2008 are doubly-impressive. :)
