Default Marking bugs for bugday?

Great ideas!


The teams should send the list of
bugs, with each bug filling a skeleton similar to the following:

* Ticket number.
* Title.
* Clear, easy to understand, short description of what we want to
delegate to our users.
* Topic of the task (as in networking, C/C++, python, ebuild, etc.).
* Difficulty of the task.
* Detailed step-by-step description of the task.


This will not work. You need to keep things really simple for our devs.
I don't see anybody but the most dedicated ones, who also happen
to have a lot of time on their hands, fill out such a detailed form.

I'd say let devs just nominate bugs, either by adding BugDay to
the keywords field or something similar, or by passing the bugday
team a list of bug numbers. Then the bugday team can sort these
and see if any instructions are needed. They could always ask the
involved devs/teams for more info when necessary.

Cheers,


You don't need to make it compulsory to fill out those fields and if
just 1 out of every 10 or 20 bugs gets that filled then it is still a
big leap forward.


Or... Ask for a dev whose whole job is to fill out those forms. I'm sure
there are plenty of non-coders out there who would be willing to do it,
even a team!

Has anyone looked at how others projects do bugdays? We shouldn't need
to reinvent the wheel here and can probably get some great ideas from
other distributions out there.

Quoting Ioannis Aslanidis <aslanidis@gmail.com>:

I would prefer to keep the keyword for
Bugday Members to administer.


I don't think that sending mails would work well.
If you want extra control/QA for bugday team members
I would propose two different keywords: one for bugday
candidates and one for confirmed bugday bugs.

Any dev could mark bugs as candidates easily and without
delays while you could still reserve acknoledgement to you.
