Default Eeebotu for #kubuntu-bugs


Recently eeebotu got the ability to monitor certain package sets for bugs, so I was thinking of getting eeebotu in #kubuntu-bugs for monitoring all new bugs filed against the kubuntu package set.

Subject: Changes to eeeBotu (bug announcer bot)

To: "Ubuntu Bug Control" <ubuntu-bugcontrol@lists.launchpad.net>, <ubuntu-bugsquad@lists.ubuntu.com>

Hello all,

As you may (or may not) know, we have a bot -- eeeBotu -- that

announces new Ubuntu bugs on the #ubuntu-bugs-announce channel on


-- History Interlude --

This bot was written by Mike Rooney in 2008, after we lost the

then-offical bug-announcing bot. The name 'eeeBotu' came from the

fact that Mike originally was running the bot on his eeePC, and that

it was a bot for Ubuntu (as expected, for this last part).

After a while, Mike had a problem on the eeePC, and was looking for

someone to host the bot. Well, I had the equipment and excess

bandwidth, so I started running it. eeeBotu transferred itself to an

old Pentium-4 machine, and has been happily there since.

(The P4 is starting to complain of age, so I will probably be moving

eeeBotu to a not-so-old box in the future.)

Anyway. At the time I started running eeeBotu Mike and I had a lot

of ideas of what the bot could/should do. But... it was working

nice, and we had other things to do... so it was left alone, just

grabbing new bugs for Ubuntu, and announcing them on the channel.

Then... yesterday Jorge Castro pinged me, and asked if eeeBotu could

also monitor Ayatana bugs. Sure, I said. "I want the bugs announced

on the -- say -- #ayatana-bugs channel", said Jorge. "Sure" -- I

said -- "just give me a few minutes to code it in".

Well, it took a bit more than "a few minutes", and it was more than

a quick hack.

-- End History Interlude --

I am happy to announce that:

1. The #ayatana-bugs channel will now have eeeBotu announcing bugs

affecting (ayatana|compiz|unity). Please note that these are

upstream projects on LP, *not* the Ubuntu packages;

2. eeeBotu is now capable of monitoring bugs for different sets of

projects on different channels. The only restriction -- right now --

is that the channels must be on freenode.net.

Please ping me on questions.
