BugZappers Triage Team Status Update for Bug Day Event on 2005-07-29 [Traditional Lateness Excuse] Sorry for the delay on this report, the myriad things going on as well as Fedora @ LinuxWorld caused some delays. Anyway, here goes... [Congrats on a job well done] Congratulations to the entire BugZappers team on a phenomenal job well done on the first ever BugZappers Bug Day Event. Pat yourselves on the back or buy yourselves a lollipop, some of you even have rewards to look forward to. [Triage is a game of inches...] Once the fun was over, we sat down to begin the count, to see just how successful our efforts really were. I am glad to report that we had no fingers dipped in ink and absolutely no hanging chads! After a preliminary count, we reached an initial number of 250 bugs triaged. However, many of us did work under either multiple or alternate email addresses, therefore the final number taking into account all email addresses and the combined efforts of some Red Hat engineers as well as the BugZappers the final number stands at 310 total bugs triaged for the entirety of the first Bug Day. This was by far an outstanding accomplishment by the team! Great Work. [Honorees] We promised rewards?!@!? Yes we did, and the following recipients are quite worthy of them. The following people are the trailblazers of the BugZappers Triage Team and their efforts deserved to be rewarded: Maxwell Kanat-Alexander - for setting up our new friend fedorabot! Peter Van Egdom Gerwin Krist Olivier Baudron Seth Vidal Colin Charles Your prize package includes a Fedora Project T-shirt, a Fedora Project Hat and a Fedora Project Hot/Cold mug. I will be contacting each person for shipping info separately. [Final Thoughts] At the end of the day, it really is true grassroots efforts like these that help make the Fedora Project as awesome as it really is. The sheer number of bugs that were triaged was simply amazing. A real sight for kind of computer reading strained eyes. I would like to thank everyone who participated and be on the look out for an announcement regarding our next Bug Day Event on Friday 19 August 2005. Thanks!
