If you have a target in mind but not sure whether to add it to the Planning page just ask us at #ubuntu-bugs on FreeNode or contact PedroVillavicencio.

== Wiki Planning ==

After identifying a target you need to add it to the Ideas section on the Planning page as described:

 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/Planning?action=edit
  * Add your idea
  * Add your name to the organizers section
Line 35: Line 44:
 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/Planning?action=edit
  * Add your idea
  * Move past HugDays down to the 'past' section.
 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad/Header?action=edit
  * Change the date for the next HugDay to yours, assuming that the listed HugDay has passed.
=== Date Changes ===

After choosing a date you need to change three pages, those are:

 * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BugSquad/Header/Hugday?action=edit
Line 41: Line 50:
  * Change the date for the next HugDay to yours, assuming that the listed HugDay has passed.  * https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Events?action=edit
  * Move past HugDays down and put yours on the list

Please also ask on the #ubuntu-bugs channel for someone to update the topic to include the Bug Day page.

=== Hug day page creation ===

'''Note''': Please only create the wiki page in the week you're having the bug day, since it might create problems with the hug-day tool.
Line 43: Line 60:
  * The date should be a combination of <year><month><day> 20080215 = Feb 15, 2008
  * Paste the following into the new page and fill in the details
  * Save and keep reading on how to make the list of bugs semi automaticly
  * The date should be a combination of <year><month><day> 20100318 = March 18, 2010
  * Select the UbuntuBugDay/TaskTemplate on the left side list when creating the new page.
  * <<<TARGET>>> should be replaced with your HugDay target
  * <<<DATE>>>> should be replaced with the date of the hug day for the 5-a-day statistics.
  * Save and keep reading on how to make the list of bugs semi-automatically
Line 47: Line 66:
'''Due to an update in the wiki software, this is broken. Please stand by, or feel free to fix'''  * You could use editmoin with the template page like so:

This week's Hug Day will focus on '''TARGET NAME'''! The goal of today's bug day will be to DESCRIBE THE REASON YOU CHOOSE THE TARGET.

Here we have a sampling of bugs to work on for Hug Day. 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 "background-color:" and before ";". This will let people know that the bug in that row has been hugged.


== 5-a-day-ing ==

During hug days you can also do [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/5-A-Day 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-20080810
 * Add bugs to 5-a-day as usual
 * And when done with hug day run: 5-a-day --remove-tag hugday-20080810


== Stock Responses ==
## Add any common responses that might be useful for your huggers so they don't have to spend time to think one up or search for them. ["Bugs/Responses"] will be useful. Also add a comment to recommend when it should be used and other action than should be performed. Replace the example with your own brew.

'''Waiting for reply'''
Set the status to 'invalid' if there is not enough information to fix the issue and the bug reporter has not responded to requests for more information. Reiterate the needed information for the record.

{{{
Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. There has been no communication for over two months, I am setting the report to invalid until the needed information can be attached.

Please attach the following information:
 *
 *
 *

After attaching the information requested above, set the bug status to 'new' to signify that it is ready for triage / review.
}} } ##remove the space here



For other problem specific Stock Responses See: ["Bugs/Responses"]

== 60 Bugs for '''Hug Target''' ==

'''To mark it off the list you should:'''
 * Verify the bug is still not fixed
 * Request any needed info, Subscribe, Status to incomplete '''or'''
 * Set status to Confirmed

## bugnumbers --status=New -p TARGET --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
||<rowbgcolor="#FFEBBB"> '''Bug''' || '''Subject''' || '''Triager''' ||


== 40 Confirmed 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'''
 * Mark as triaged and set priority (Must be a member of UbuntuBugControl

## bugnumbers --status=Confirmed -p TARGET --format=bugday --sort="-nr" --file=AFile.txt
||<rowbgcolor="#FFEBBB"> '''Bug''' || '''Subject''' || '''Triager''' ||


== Progress ==
## it is nice to have pictures which you can do by directly linking to a graph at http://people.ubuntu.com/~brian/complete-graphs/ just by adding a hyperlink to the graph in the wiki page
## at the end of day I usually save the graph to my local system and then add it as an attachment to the wiki page
## example - attachment:compiz-1day-new.png

http://people.ubuntu.com/~brian/complete-graphs/compiz/plots/compiz-1day-new.png

== More Bugs ==
## If you think the list you made might be depleted, or want to let others know how to find similar bugs in the future, add a link to a 'live' version.

This list is just a nibble of the [https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub bigger picture].

combine blog-powers to educate, "Bug work is a fun way to get involved!"

Running a HugDay is a great way to get acquainted with the community and learn some new skills. It's all very informal so don't be shy. Smile :)

Identify a Target

Organizing a HugDay starts with choosing a list of bugs to hug. You can choose whatever packages matter most to you but check out UbuntuBugDay/Planning for previous and planned HugDay and add your ideas!

Initial E-mail

To make sure everyone is on the same track, and that there are no other plans for the week, send a simple e-mail to BugSquad after adding your idea to the UbuntuBugDay/Planning page. The cookie cutter e-mail is just an example, you should put your own twist in.

ubuntu-bugsquad at lists.ubuntu.com

HugDay Target

Hi, I am ... from ... I enjoy ... and ...

I would like to organize a HugDay for <package> on <date>. Are there any other plans for this day?

Your Name Here.

In accordance with https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/Organizing

If you have a target in mind but not sure whether to add it to the Planning page just ask us at #ubuntu-bugs on FreeNode or contact PedroVillavicencio.

Wiki Planning

After identifying a target you need to add it to the Ideas section on the Planning page as described:

Wiki Stuff

After you're ready to run, add your HugDay to the wiki!

Date Changes

After choosing a date you need to change three pages, those are:

Please also ask on the #ubuntu-bugs channel for someone to update the topic to include the Bug Day page.

Hug day page creation

Note: Please only create the wiki page in the week you're having the bug day, since it might create problems with the hug-day tool.

  • https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/<Your Date Here>?action=edit

    • The date should be a combination of <year><month><day> 20100318 = March 18, 2010

    • Select the UbuntuBugDay/TaskTemplate on the left side list when creating the new page.

    • <<<TARGET>>> should be replaced with your HugDay target

    • <<<DATE>>>> should be replaced with the date of the hug day for the 5-a-day statistics.

    • Save and keep reading on how to make the list of bugs semi-automatically
  • You could use editmoin with the template page like so:

    editmoin -t UbuntuBugDay/TaskTemplate https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBugDay/<Your Date Here>

Generate the bug list

In attempt to make sure the most recent bugs also are hugged but all timezones are considered, I would generate the list of bugs two days ahead of the big day.

Ubuntu BugDay script

The Ubuntu Bug Day script from ubuntu-qa-tools will help create lists of bugs to target for the day. First grab the code with:

git clone lp:ubuntu-qa-tools

and for use it just pass the name of the target as:

cd ubuntu-qa-tools/launchpadlib-scripts
./ubuntu-bugday.py --package alacarte 

First you need to authorize the script and if you did it correctly, the script will create a target.txt (ie: alacarte.txt) file with all the bug lists that you can copy & paste into the bug day page.

If you discover any bugs about the tools please report them.

Open Office

Sometimes Bughelper cannot query what you want exactly, so to turn a search results from LaunchPad into the proper format for the wiki here you are.

Copy the table of bugs into Open Office, then delete all the columns except the # and Description.

Copy the following to cell A1:

||<rowstyle="background-color: ;"> [[https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/ 

Make sure the ';' after background-color does not become a ','. If it does, change it back to ';'.

Now copy the list of bug numbers to column B and the list of descriptions to column C. Now fill column D with the following:

=CONCATENATE($A$1,B1,"|",B1,"]] || ",C1," ||   ||") 

Now you can copy and paste column D to the wiki.

Announcement E-mail

Since the bug day page is now ready, now we just need people to know where to show up!, The Announcements needs to be sent at least two days before the bug day. Change your name, the dates, the target, and add any other information that might help that to triage those bugs, please notice that if you're not subscribed to those lists you need to ping a moderator to allow the message to go trough, just ask on #ubuntu-bugs for someone to moderate that message.
