Opening Discussion

PENDING ITEM: What to do with releases after EOL

  • Punt -- wait to hear from Joel

PENDING ITEM: Bibisect Repositories

  • ACTION: Bjoern/Robinson will investigate the possibility of being able to update the bibisect repository via git
  • ACTION: Florian R. will discuss with Bjoern the compression used for the daily builds [If possible "Save only". Fears a big redownload -> Untested...]
  • Florian R. - Script and notes about bibisecting here:
  • Bjoern - We should discuss this in more depth at the conference
  • Florian R. - If new repo --> Include older versions!!
    • Bjoern - Including older versions would expand the repository and make the initial download size much larger (might be scary for first-time QA members?)
  • Bjoern - Will present more info about tinderboxes/ubuntu at the conference

PENDING ITEM: Feedback pages

  • ACTION: Robinson will go ahead with the Feedback page idea (and ping Rob)
  • Robinson - Still in process

PENDING ITEM: QA Meeting Times

  • [DONE] ACTION: Joel will start email thread about new time possibility and other options
  • Bjoern - Current time works for me
  • Florian R. - It depends upon class schedule
  • Let's revisit this topic in a month (after the conference)
  • ACTION: Robinson will ping the QA mailing list that we'll revisit the QA Meeting time in about a month

PENDING ITEM: Most Annoying Bug List

  • [SUPERSEDED] ACTION: Joel and others will work on moving MAB to a single list
  • Bjoern - Joel's proposal was to use prioritization (as it's quite good these days) and move away from our MAB lists
  • Bjoern - Users may be abusing the severity (setting more to 'blocker'), but not abusing the priority as much
    • Easiest: Re-index all of our bugs to turn MAB -> Highest priority, and bump the current set of 'Highest' bugs down to 'High'
  • ACTION: Florian R. will email out to the QA list and shepherd our trial of this process


  • This is done

PENDING ITEM: Known Limitations Warning

  • ACTION: Joel will add an enhancement request about adding a Known Limitation pop-up/warning tool
  • Robinson - I'll follow-up with Joel to make sure this is done
