Thread-topic: New Bugzilla Tracking Process

Xen Community:


Henning Sprang, Mark Williamson, and I discussed the issue of people reporting bugs in the Bugzilla system with no guarantee that anyone was watching or working on the Bugzilla system. Several companies working on the Xen hypervisor are leveraging Bugzilla to track and monitor issues but there is  no existing process to ensure that bugs entered by users or developers are being worked on.  We are proposing the following process as a possible solution and will start this process next week:


·         I will monitor the xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list daily to see what bugs are entered.

·         I will filter out all “corporate” bugs that are being entered by companies working on the hypervisor and will follow-up with the bug creator of non “corporate” bugs to ensure that the data entered is complete for a developer to understand and reproduce the problem.

·         Mark will do a review of the bug reported to ensure that it is in fact a system issue which needs developer attention

·         I will send an email 1x per week to xen-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list with all the bugs that are open for developer attention

·         Any developer interested in working on a bug from the list can either update Bugzilla themselves or work with me to ensure that the fix is documented and the bug is closed when work is complete


If you have any additional comments, please feel free to add them to this discussion on xen-community@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or contact me directly at the email address below. Thanks.
