everything i know i learned from bugzilla

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I did some bug triage today and then went through and fixed some old bug data (apologies to everyone for the bug spam). A couple of interesting things came out of that.

First off, it's interesting to note that 2.0 so far has 163 bugs marked as FIXED. That's more than any version of Miro since 0.9.5. Hard to know what happened before that because we have inadequate bug data. Go team!

Second, there are a total of 877 open bugs right now. 323 of those are targeted as Wishlist items. We've been around the 850 mark since September with a big bump between December and February in the 1000 range. I think that means generally speaking that we're keeping up with bugs which is good.

Third, it's pretty clear that the widget overhaul will clear out a lot of older bugs. Partially because we're ditching the HTML interface and the issues that caused, but also because we're re-implementing a lot of stuff and in doing that, fixing issues in the process.

Miro 2.0 is going to rock your socks!
