Bug Day on Thursday 12 June 2008

The Thunderbird folks are organizing a bug day this Thursday, 12 June 2008. The schedule is located here. Generally, feel free to pop by outside of the sessions as well, some experienced folks should be around to help you.

The focus of this bug day is found here.

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 (2.0.0.14), or in the trunk nightlies (3.0a2pre) for the more adventurous.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 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.

Due to timing restrictions, we only have one official session, from 12pm to 2pm PDT, to assist anyone who wants to contribute. (My nick is "nth10sd") Several experienced folks will be there to assist as well.

The results of the bug day will be posted to Mozilla Wiki.
