What’s that bug to you? GlusterFS bug priority meeting


What’s that bug worth?

One of the values of open source and open development is the impact of Community involvement. That involvement takes many forms, code development, innovation and evangelism, guidance for new users and solutions and identifying bugs.

Finding and fixing problems in existing code is incredibly valuable in building production ready systems. And the process of setting bug priorities (bug triage) is equally important.

The bug discussion meeting is where we all screen and prioritize tracker issues. This should help ensure we are managing all reported issues, bugs as well as feature requests.

And like most things in open development and open source, it’s better when we are all actively involved.

With that in mind, we’d like to make sure you’re aware of the upcoming Gluster bug prioritization meeting on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at 12:00 UTC. (You can find your time with the World Clock)

This meeting will take place, on the Freenode IRC, channel #gluster-meeting, at 12:00 UTC. The last one was quite helpful and it’s clear that these meetings should continue.

The current information on the upcoming meeting can be found on the public Etherpad. Note, Item 4, propose your chosen bugs for discussion and Item 5, propose your own topics of interest.

We’ll be reminding you of this upcoming meeting through a couple of channels. And we hope to see you there.

When: Tuesday, October 14th, 2014, 12:00 UTC
Where: Freenode IRC channel #gluster-meeting

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases. Thus, while release 8 is unlikely to be feature heavy as previous releases, it will be the...
