Hi I work for Canonical as a Quality Assurance Engineer and my primary focus is on kernel bugs. I actively work on triaging new incoming bug reports against the actively developed kernel. I also follow up on new and existing bug reports made against previously released kernels. There still exists a lot of open kernel bugs and I'd like to see that number come down! I'm also involved in other general QA related areas such as performing SRU verifications, participating in weekly Bug Days, ISO Testing, and working on developing projects which have been generated from Ubuntu specs.
I generate a weekly kernel buglist which I forward to the kernel team. The list is compiled of bugs I come across each week that should have enough information gathered for the kernel team to either quickly produce a fix or immediately start debugging. I've received excellent feedback and the kernel team has been doing an awesome job of resolving the majority of bugs I give them.
- The mobile team also asked if I could generate a list for them as well:
- I'm also generating similar pages for bugs that both the QA team and Distro Team are interested in tracking:
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/qa-hardy-list-archive/sort-by-package/current-buglist.html - bugs tagged 'qa-hardy-list'
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/qa-hardy-list-archive/sort-by-package/desktop-buglist.html - bugs tagged 'qa-hardy-desktop'
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/qa-hardy-list-archive/sort-by-package/platform-buglist.html - bugs tagged 'qa-hardy-platform'
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/qa-hardy-list-archive/sort-by-package/server-buglist.html - bugs tagged 'qa-hardy-server'
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/malone-buglist.html - malone bugs the QA team has reported or is interested in monitoring, tagged 'ubuntu-qa'
developer-weather-report - the goal of this Ubuntu spec is to provide the Ubuntu release team a dashboard covering all the variables that go into determining whether Ubuntu is release ready - bug count, RC bug count, archive analysis reports, iso testing summaries, etc, linking to detailed data about each metric.
A prototype currently being used by the release team can be seen here: http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/weatherreport.html
Active participant in weekly Ubuntu Bug Days
Participating in 5-A-Day
Help performing SRU verifications
- Helped create and update several QA related wiki pages such as:
I've commented on 1000+ bug reports
12,000+ Karma points
~30% of all Fix Released kernel bugs for Hardy had made the weekly kernel buglist
http://people.ubuntu.com/~ogasawara/hardy-buglist.svg - Status of all Hardy kernel bugs which made the weekly buglist
- Bring the total number of open kernel bugs down
- Find more efficient and effective ways of triaging bugs
- Try to build more community support to help triage bugs
Leann is a quick learner and a fantastic bug triager/patch hunter. Big +1 from me. -- KeesCook (kees)
