Release Critical Bugs report for week 43

October 25th, 2012 by lucas

During the Squeeze release cycle, Alexander Reichle-Schmehl used to blog every week about this. Let’s try to continue the tradition.

The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs:

  • In Total: 916
    • Affecting wheezy: 464
      That’s the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories:

      • Affecting wheezy and unstable: 327
        Those need someone to find a fix, or to finish the work to upload a fix to unstable:

        • 77 bugs are tagged ‘patch’.
          Please help by reviewing the patches, and (if you are a DD) by uploading them.
        • 17 bugs are marked as done, but still affect unstable.
          This can happen due to missing builds on some architectures, for example. Help investigate!
        • 235 bugs are neither tagged patch, nor marked done.
          Help make a first step towards resolution!
      • Affecting wheezy only: 137
        Those are already fixed in unstable, but the fix still needs to migrate to wheezy. You can help by submitting unblock requests for fixed packages, by investigating why packages do not migrate, or by reviewing submitted unblock requests.

Note: I’m looking for someone to send this posts on a regular basis. All you need is a blog syndicated on Planet Debian (there’s a secret UDD page that generates the HTML code for you ;) ). Contact me if you are interested. taken!

    The job is alreadey taken, but still: we (the Polish Debian community) already publish report like this, here’s the latest one: http://dug.net.pl/news/459/

    Besides those numbers like above, we also include:

    1) gnuplot chart (there is also almost (just spotted that) English version http://dug.net.pl/gnuplot/rcbugs/rc_bugs_report_en_2012-43.png, just add “en” before date in original chart) for a few past weeks. There is also a big chart since Alexander started to publish Wheezy reports http://dug.net.pl/gnuplot/rcbugs/rc_bugs_report_all_en.png, but it’s not included in report.
    2) short “XX less/more” summary for “to be fixed from the RM point of view” and “to be fixed ignoring easily solved”.

    I can share the code. Or translate reports back to English and setup some simple ikiwiki/chronicle blog (we’re not syndicated to Debian Planet, though).
