Bug Fixing Day March 2011

Mar 23 2011

Following the success we had last month with Bug Fixing Day, we decided to transform this special day into a habit, similarly to what we previously had in 2008.

The goal of the Bug Fixing Day is to reduce the ratio of created versus resolved issues. We use this time to catch up on bugs, by closing as many as possible, either by fixing them, or by cleaning up duplicates and issues that no longer reproduce.

The second edition of Bug Fixing Day was organized on March 17th 2011. We managed to close 22 bugs, out of which 15 were real fixes and 7 were closed as part of the cleanup process. See the list of bugs we fixed here. You can read the mail thread related to the event on Markmail.

The chart below represents the created vs resolved issues from the past 365 days. The chart indicates a 1:1 ratio. We have managed to keep this ratio balanced throughout the year.

We want to thank all participants (Committers and Contributors alike) and would like to invite you to join us on our next edition of Bug Fixing Day, which will be announced on the XWiki Mailing Lists. Also don't forget there are many other ways in which you can contribute to the XWiki Open Source project.
