Agenda + Minutes


Content from the meeting itself ("the minutes") will be displayed in blue boxes like this.

Before we Start

A few minutes before we officially start, we'll try to have a few people in the IRC channel:


IRC Minutes

We'll touch on a few metrics such as UNCONFIRMED bug count and regressions, and then we'll have each person in the meeting bring up whatever QA topics they'd like to address.

Some people like the current meeting time on Wednesdays, but if there's enough interest in change, we'll do it.


  • Bugs to discuss

Pending topics:

  • State of multimedia in macOS
  • FOLLOW-UP: How are we doing with macOS people bibisecting preBibisect bugs? (count was 20 as of 2014-11-05)

New topics:

  • Beluga mentions issue of marking bugs RESOLVED WORKSFORME when they might get backported (e.g. tdf#74300).
    • Robinson: IDEA: Ideally the bug status would track what's happening in master/latest builds. If it's fixed there, then we resolve it
      • One could ask for a backport of a fix to an active release branch with a whiteboard tag: backportRequest:4.3
      • If a dev has a good reason not to backport, he should change that to backportDenied:4.3 (and leave a comment, natch)
      • Any 'backportRequest:X.x' tags that reference a release branch older than the current Still, we ignore.
