Bug triage workshop for Desktop Firefox
July 25, 2014
The Desktop Firefox QA team is hosting an extra Bug triage workshop Friday July 25th. We’ll teach the basics of triaging and working with bugzilla.mozilla.org.
The event is open to everyone and free. No previous experience is required — sign up, follow the steps below, and come and join us to help make Firefox better!
The workshop will take place on July 25th on the #testday channel on irc.mozilla.org in two different slots to accommodate most timezones: at 10:00 am UTC for Europe and Asia, and at 7 pm UTC to cover the U.S. .
Want to participate? Follow the steps below!
Step 1 – Create a One and Done account
“One and Done” is a platform where Mozilla community contributors can pick tasks and work on them – one at a time, one day at a time – and feel good about doing them.
You can join it with your Mozilla Persona account, if you already have one. If not, you can create one through the One and Done page.
Step 2 – Create a Bugzilla account
Bugzilla is Mozilla’s bug tracking system. This is where bugs are reported and where every change for a bug is stored and tracked. To update a bug report in any way, you will need to sign in to Bugzilla. The Create a Bugzilla account task in One and Done has a walkthrough on signing up.
Step 3 – Be ready to connect to IRC
IRC stands for “Internet Relay Chat”. It’s a protocol for real-time chat sessions. Users log in to a particular server to chat with other users.
To join the #testday IRC channel, you can connect using your browser:
Join the #testday channel using Mibbit. Or, you can
take a look at the wiki page to help you pick an IRC client to install on your computer.
Step 4 – Register for the workshop!
Add your contact information to the Bug triage workshop etherpad, which we’ll use during the event.
Our goal for this workshop is to give an overview of bug triage, and to follow up afterwards with the participants to answer questions, award badges, and make sure you have the tools you need to get involved more closely with Mozilla’s development and QA process. See you next week!
