As you know, we no longer have a dedicated person for fixing bugs. We ran out of WHS money and the remaining NLnet money is linked to unrelated milestones.
- review pull requests and prepare builds
- submit issues and write pull requests at will:
- anybody who uses remotestorage.js, including the core team
- doing tickets (so all known bugs get investigated and fixed)
Since we no longer have a dedicated bugfixer, I think we all need to volunteer some of our time for this third point.
We have a few months-old bugs that nobody wants to get their hands dirty on, because we can all think of more fun things to work on, and nobody really feels it is their responsibility either.
I thought about this and I’ll volunteer one day a week, probably the Friday, starting 18 April (until then I’m on holidays). Soon after that I’ll be back in Berlin, I think it would be fun to do peer-programming days!
We can see how this evolves. There are 72 tickets open now, 13 of which are bugs. Let’s see if we can reduce that list over the coming months.
