Bug Day on Thursday 27 March 2008

The Thunderbird folks are organizing a bug day this Thursday, 27 March 2008. The schedule is as follows:

Asia session – 14:00-16:00 (Beijing)
Europe session – 14:00-16:00 (Berlin)
America session – 12:00-14:00 (Los Angeles)

The focus will be on triaging unconfirmed Thunderbird bugs.

How?

Triaging is easy! You don’t have to be able to understand computer languages in order to triage most bugs.

You just have to try and reproduce the bug by following the steps written in the report. Add a comment stating whether the bug still applies in the latest supported version of Thunderbird 2 (2.0.0.12), or in the trunk nightlies (3.0a1pre) for the more adventurous.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.12 builds:

Windows builds Official Windows installer

Linux builds Official Linux (i686)

Mac builds Official Mac (Universal binary)

Please drop by #bugday and help us get our bug numbers down; we need your help! First timers and experienced triagers welcome.

I will be available throughout all three timeslots to assist anyone who wants to contribute. (My nick is "nth10sd") Several experienced folks will be there to assist as well.

Update: The results of the bug day have been posted to Mozilla Wiki.
