virt-manager: The Great Bug Triage
I checked my mail this evening to find a whopping 57 new messages in my Ubuntu-Virt-Bugs folder, which is a bit high for a Sunday night.
Why, pray tell, did I have 57 new messages?
Ah, well, this was the excellent work of Marc Deslauriers, one of Canonical's esteemed security engineers, evidently working hard on a Sunday afternoon triaging virt-manager bugs.
Thanks, Marc, you're the man!
Are you reading this post wondering "How can I get more active in the Ubuntu Community?" or "How can I give something back to the open source world?" Do you have an interest in helping ensure that Ubuntu 10.04 LTS's virt-manager package is a stable graphical virtual machine manager?
If so, pay a visit to Launchpad, and help try to reproduce any of the 57 remaining New and Incomplete bugs filed against virt-manager. If you help tell us what bugs have been fixed in Lucid, and which ones remain, it will greatly help Ubuntu developers focus on fixing the rest!
