The bug squad is hiring!



Hi all,

Introducing the bug squad: Currently there is not much to introduce
except for this idea in my head. Last friday I started a thread about
collecting and fixing pet peeve bugs, the idea behind this thread was to
build a collection of bugs which are high on the annoyance ladder and
are fixable by mere mortals. Building such a collection is just the
start however, the next step is to build a team of volunteers to tackle
these bugs: the bug squad.

I myself will be part of the team, and I'm looking for partners in crime
to squash all those nasty bugs. So what is expected of a bug squad
member? Well the nescesarry skills to hunt down and fix bugs of course
and some time to spare and invest, thats about all. And the rewards,
well beside enormous fame the biggest reward will be a better distro and
a better Linux landscape in general with less bugs and thus more fun.

So come on and sign up today!

So what will the bug squad do once formed?
*The* purpose is to fix bugs.

That is a but of a wide scope however, so the main purpose is to fix
those bugs which affect a large audience and which are fixable with the
skills and capabilities available in the bug squad. Also this will be
strictly about bugs, not about behavioral changes (like the gnome file
selector discussions), we might do simple RFE's if and only if upstream
agrees its an enhancement.

We will also need to devise some way for people to bring bugs which
match our MO to our attention and some coordination to avoid debugging
the same bug with 3 people at the same time, but that will all come,
once we have our most important asset: People.

So come on and sign up today!


Regards,

Hans


p.s.

Here is a list of bugs collected from the pet peeve bug discussion to
get us started, filtered somewhat to weed out any behavioral change
requests:
