Changes to Bugzilla queries

On 13 September 2021, Red Hat’s Bugzilla team released updates to Bugzilla that included new functionality for pagination. There is also a change to the default number of results with the bug search API to support this feature. The default is now 20 but can be adjusted to 1000 by using the limit/offset parameters.

Exploring our bugs, part 3: time to resolution

This is the third and final part of a series I promised during my Nest With Fedora talk (also called “Exploring Our Bugs”). In this post, I’ll analyze the time it takes to resolve bug reports from Fedora Linux 19 to Fedora Linux 32. If you want to do your own analysis, the Jupyter notebook and source data are available on Pagure. These posts are not written to advocate any specific changes or policies. In fact, they may ask more questions than they answer.

Exploring our bugs, part 1: the basics

This is this first part of a series I promised during my Nest With Fedora talk (also called “Exploring Our Bugs”). In this post, I’ll review some of the basic statistics from analyzing bugs from Fedora Linux 19 to Fedora Linux 32. If you want to do your own analysis, the Jupyter notebook and source data are available on Pagure. These posts are not written to advocate any specific changes or policies. In fact, they may ask more questions than they answer. This first post looks at some basic information, including counts, priorities, and duplicates.

Accidental EOL bug closures

As you’re probably aware, Fedora 29 reached End-of-Life (EOL) status yesterday. The Fedora Program Manager (that’s me!) is responsible for closing any bugs that are still open against that version. Typically, several thousand bugs remain open, so there is a script to do this. This morning, I accidentally closed bugs as EOL that should not have been closed. In the interests of community transparency, I want to share what happened.

Changes to the Prioritized Bugs process

The Fedora Prioritized Bugs process was introduced a few years ago to bring attention to bugs that are high-impact or highly-visible, but don’t violate the release criteria. I recently made some changes to how we implement this in Bugzilla that will help make it easier to handle. This post is to explain the change as well as remind the community that the process exists. This can only work with community input.
