Okay. So this past week saw me going down to Raleigh and then back to New York, up to Westford and then back to New York Again. The funny part is, I had always imagined myself disliking the South, you know based on that whole Union vs. Confederacy thing. So I was shocked when I left and I found myself saying that the South is actually pretty nice. Lots of green. I don't get very much of that anywhere else. While I was down there I got a chance to go out with Greg, Seth and Elliot and we discussed some things. It was nice to see everyone again.
Anyway, so at some point on Wednesday I got settled and started focusing on accomplishing something, to gather some hard data on the overall Fedora bug situation. Mainly I wanted to get a breakdown of certain metrics, bugs by component over each release, % bugs reported by community members vs. Red Hat employees, % bugs that are really bugs vs. feature requests, % bugs that are being reported which should be upstream etc etc. I think it's really important to gather the data before we start conjuring up documentation and creating triage processes. Hopefully, in a week or so we should have a really clear and extremely detailed overview of what is going on, where it is going on, and by whom. At that point it will be a lot easier to do a handful of things.
Other than that, I just went through BZ and tried and close anything which was fixed upstream already, and just wasn't noted as such in RH BZ. Also filed a few bugs upstream and linked them into RH BZ. So at least things are moving along nicely and bigger things are starting to take form.
**Special mention of the week: The jukebox in that place in Harvard square, was it Charlie's? Man that thing kicked ass.
