Would you like to help with categorizing these bugs? I can upgrade your mantis account for additional power!

Thank you very much! Apologies, I realize I may have assigned a bug to someone who said they'd create a PR for a specific ticket. I need to look back and see. I won't do that again.yorik wrote:Ok done! I turned you into a developer, I believe that gives you enough power to do everything that you need, in case it's insufficient tell me.
About the priority categorizing, I am not sure. Nobody assigns bug to anybody else in FreeCAD, it's each developer (99% Werner, basically ) who chooses which bug to attribute to himself (or herself hopefully some day). And each developer who attributes bug to himself will order the priorities as he sees fit. Mantis already has some structure for that.

And honestly I like it a lot this way, nobody is forced to anything, you do things as you want, when you want. Also, it is very rare that some new developer would come and pick an issue to solve on the tracker. Mostly, when someone new comes and produces code, that is all done through the forum, and doesn't even appear in the tracker.
you've uncovered an interesting internal bias for me here.yorik wrote:It's true that our open bugs list is a bit huge, it would give a better impression if it weren't. I have to confess, often I look at a github project, and I see like "200 issues open" and I think "what a bunch of lazy pricks here!"
No, now I'm understanding better the kind of culture FC dev community has, thanks for elaborating. I see how that type of methodology that I was proposing above could turn a hobby in to a chore.yorik wrote:But it is probably much more a question of doing better triage and cleaning. If we would separate the feature requests from the bugs, for example, probably the problem would look much better handled...
Come to think of it, I would ask you at some point if I could have access to MantisBT's ticket summary page. I have some experience with Mantis from volunteering over at the Scribus DTP project. I've been a bug triage volunteer with MantisBT admin privs, so I know my way around pretty good.yorik wrote:I believe that gives you enough power to do everything that you need, in case it's insufficient tell me.
I think this was me. I'm not a developer so I can't assign tickets to myself. So please continue to assign PPA and Win build/deployment issues to me.Kunda1 wrote:Thank you very much!
