This week's Hug Day will focus on Xubuntu Bugs! The goal of today's bug day will be to help reduce the number of bugs in Xubuntu by giving the Xubuntu Team a hand triaging bugs. Thanks for helping make Xubuntu Intrepid Ibex really rock!

After you have triaged or fixed a bug put your name in the last column and set the row's background to green by adding lightgreen in the first cell of the column after rowbgcolor=. This will let people know that the bug in that row has been hugged.<rowbgcolor=lightgreen>

As the Intrepid Ibex 8.10 Beta is scheduled to be released today, we'd like to encourage bug reporters to verify if the bug still exists in this upcoming release. You will need:

  • An install or LiveCD of Xubuntu Hardy WARNING: Do not use alpha and beta versions on production systems...

  • An install of Xubuntu Intrepid or a LiveCD. Downloads of Xubuntu Intrepid Beta should be available here when it is released.

Please ask questions in #ubuntu-bugs and #xubuntu-devel

5-a-day-ing

During hug days you can also do 5-A-Day for this one you can do the following in order to tag your work on the hug day:

  • 5-a-day --add-tag hugday-20081002
  • Add bugs to 5-a-day as usual
  • And when done with hug day run: 5-a-day --remove-tag hugday-20081002

It unfortunately appears that this bug is not yet resolved.  Does this issue still exist in the Xubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS release?  If so, the Intrepid Ibex 8.10 Beta is also scheduled for release today.  It will appear at the following when available: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/releases/intrepid/ .  It would be great if you could test this upcoming release via a LiveCD and verify if the issue still exists.  If so, please include the appropriate debugging information.  Thanks in advance.

118 New Bugs

To mark it off the list you should:

  • Verify the bug is still not fixed
  • Request any needed info, Subscribe, Status to incomplete or

  • If all needed information is there, set status to Confirmed.

As usual, if you think a bug is not specific to Xubuntu, and for application feature requests, and most non-packaging bugs, look for and/or file the bug upstream. Since Xubuntu uses the Xfce desktop, many will be filed at xfce.org]. If one is not there, file a new one. On the Launchpad bug, go to "Also affects project..." and link to the Xfce bug. When filing a bug at xfce.org that's already in Launchpad, include "originally filed here:" and the link the the Launchpad bug. For an existing bug, comment that it "was also filed here: ..."

These are bugs in Xubuntu that are yet to be triaged.
