Fedora: Gone Bug Hunting

Filed under
Linux

Are you a Fedora Linux user that wants to contribute to the community but don't know how?

You could start by "Zapping" bugs.

A new community-driven effort by the hobbyist Linux distribution community is underway, part of an effort to engage and expand Fedora's user base in order to rid Red Hat's community distribution of bugs.

Called the Fedora BugZappers Triage Team, the new effort is being positioned as a way for non-Red Hat employees -- that is, the Fedora "community" of users itself -- to help the project.

"I think it empowers mainly the people who want to contribute who don't know how or where to and especially those whose coding skills aren't insanely good but still want to help," Fedora contributor Jack Aboutboul told internetnews.com.

The goal of the BugZapper Team is "to be the primary line of defense for Fedora Quality Assurance (QA)." The goal of the new group is do an initial pass, a "triage" if you will, of bugs listed in Fedora's Bugzilla bug tracking system in order to access their validity.

The group's first bug day is scheduled for today.

A Short MATE Desktop 1.17 Review in February 2017

MATE 1.17 is a testing release, it has no official announcement like 1.16 stable release (odd = unstable, even = stable). But what made me interested is because Ubuntu MATE 17.04 includes it by default so I write this short review. The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
