At the OLF Conference, I delivered “Your bug tracker and you” and held a book signing for Program Management for Open Source Projects.
Abstract: Your project uses a bug tracker to track bugs, but are you learning from it? This talk covers how to configure your bug tracker to capture the right information. Attendees will learn how to triage and prioritize bugs. They will learn about processes for closing bugs, and how different closure types require different processes. The talk wraps up with a discussion of bug analysis—how to filter data, what questions to ask, and what questions to not ask, using analysis of Fedora Linux bugs as an example.
