Time to close some KMail bugs…
With kdepim and kdepim-runtime 4.6 release getting close, I think it’s finally time to squash the KMail 1 bug reports.
What will happen ?
In a couple of hours, I’ll close the KMail product, which means reporting new bugs will not be possible anymore. The bugs audit will then begin.
Several phases are planned :
- Revisit the KMail crash reports and close the ones that are no longer reproducible with KMail2
- If a given crash is reproducible, open a new KMail2 report with a fresh and useful backtrace and a link to the old report.
- Test the ‘Normal’ bugs, close the ones that cannot be reproduced, reassign the reproducible ones to the proper product (kmail2, kdepim, kdepimlibs…)
What to do with the wish reports has yet to be defined. I think evaluating the ones which received the most votes and discard the others is probably the best choice.
How can YOU help ?
You have KDEPIM 4.6 beta 5 installed ? What about starting with triaging your own bugs ?
Once logged on https://bugs.kde.org, click on “My bugs” voilà, you’re ready to triage.
Want more ? visit https://bugs.kde.org/component-report.cgi?product=kmail, pick a category and check whether you’re able to reproduce the original report. Drop a comment to the report if you cannot close it.
