Bugtracker Cleanup Day

YUNOCLEANBUGS.jpg We're going to clean up the Scribus bugtracker!

Why: Because it's time, son

When: Sometime before the end of the 2015


Guidelines for Cleaning Bugs

  • Move obsolete 'Assigned' bugs to 'Acknowledge' status or 'Confirmed'
  • Clean up bugs that are >1.4.x
  • Update all Metabugs by creating a 'Metabug 1.5' ticket for each open metabug. This way metabugs don't show up in the stats as the longest open tickets.
  • Clean up tags
  • Clean up Severity category
  • Clean up Priority category
  • Clean up backend database of registered obsolete user

MantisBT infrastructure

  • Consider adding new Ticket Status Values (per this thread in the scribus-dev ML)
  • Define how to use the 'Severity' designation and create explanation document
  • Define how to use the 'Priority' designation and create explanation document
  • find out a way to not update the date of ticket so it doesn't clutter the 'Latest Activity' in the bug tracker
  • Increase the display/view default threshold file size of attached pictures from 200K to 500K

MantisBT Upgrades

Add some plugins capabilities to Mantis

  • lightroom capability to a bug to be able to view the attached images more streamlined
  • Ability to report bugs via email for verified testers
  • Add drag-drop
  • Add multiple files
  • Slicker UI by using a theme ?

How to test bugs

  1. Please have the latest Scribus 1.4.5 (optional 1.4.6svn) and 1.5.0 (though we recommended 1.5.1svn)
  2. If you can test multiple OSs that would be very welcome (using a Virtual Machine would be a good idea to do this)
  3. If you notate a ticket please do so in a way where you identify your OS, OS version, Qt version, Scribus version(, & Scribus revision)
  4. If your find a bug while you're testing a pre-existing bug PLEASE:
    • make sure that bug doesn't already exist
    • start a new bug report for said bug and NOT just mention that you a found a new bug in a comment of a preexisting bug.
