openSUSE Bug Slashing This Weekend!

August 10th, 2007 by

bugs.png So openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 has now been released and it’s looking great. A long-discussed topic on the opensuse-project@opensuse.org (subscribe) mailing list was the suggestion of having a “Bug Slashing” day or weekend. Now we can finally go ahead with that idea.

The aim of the weekend is to try to help developers and packagers by trying to clear up the Bugzilla, finding out which bugs need to be addressed, seeing if particular bugs can be reproduced and how, and where necessary seeing which open 10.2 bugs still apply to current Factory (10.3 Beta1). It’s also the place to ask about a particular bug, or ask any other queries about whether you have found a bug. These days have run very successfully within other projects, so it is certainly time for us to give it a go too!


It should be good fun all day (though of course showing up for any amount of time is good) and it is a great way to contribute and get directly involved. Here are the details:

Where:

When:

  • This weekend. 11-12, all day, all timezones.

The Bug_Slashing page on the wiki will have more up-to-date news and information on bugs to address, bug handling techniques etc. nearer to the time.

We hope to see you there and Have a Lot of fun!

    I can wait when the final of suse 10.3 ouit is.

    suse 10.3 beta 1 is zooooo cooooooool!!!!!!!!!!!! very great work!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Can we get webcams working on OpenSUSE 10.3? They have been working on Kubuntu for a long time now.

    • This was meant to be worked on I believe, but I see they’re not in so you could consider filing a bug report or raising it on the opensuse-factory mailing list. The gspcav (most webcams) driver is available in Factory directly, even, so including it should be even easier. The only problem might be the space constraint of the CDs.
