Re: [eclipse-pmc] 4.2 Bug Hunt Competition

So this email thread has left me a little bit confused. Perhaps in your next meeting the PMC could reach a consensus on whether this is helpful, and if so what metrics you want to see rewarded (patches, bug reports, …)?

Bug count is OK, but I would like the Platform UI team to publish a list of bugs that they want to have fixed for 4.2. Otherwise the risk is high that the UI team spends time reviewing non-important patches.

Regarding rewards for finding new bugs: I think we already have enough very important open bugs that should be addressed and projects should be enough motivated to test their stuff without getting a price .

Re: [eclipse-pmc] 4.2 Bug Hunt Competition


How about "largest # of accepted patches during the contest period"?

I think anything that encourages people to contribute would be awesome. Heck, if <# of accepted patches> > 3, I'd even offer them commit rights. :-)

Sounds like a great idea to me!

It might also be a good way to get people involved in various projects
if we can drive participation there with requests for smoke/manual
testing instructions.  I'm envisioning something like "Hi, I'm new to
<project x> and want to verify things work perfectly with 4.2.  Outside
of running the unit tests, is there a set of steps I can manually run to
verify things are working as expected?"

It's probably also a good idea to keep a wiki page where bug reporters
can list their bugs and maybe a blog entry about what they tested and
found (could be a good substitute for bugs if they can't find any :).
