hello maemo!

As already announced by Murray, guenther and me have started working on maemo.org’s bug database.

A quick introduction for the maemo folks (most GNOME folks should know me already):
I started triaging Evolution bugs back in 2004 when Evolution was still handled in Ximian’s Bugzilla. Since that time I have never really stopped triaging GNOME bugs, though the plan for 2008 was (and still is) to pass the GNOME triaging crown to a worthy successor (Cosimo, Gianluca, this one goes out to you!). ;-) Being a member of the release-team i also regularly try to identify showstopper bugs for major releases.

So, what can the maemo community expect from us?
(Simplified description with marketing buzzwords included:) Our task will be to improve the bug workflow and communication between developers and users, so in the end everybody is hopefully happier and more productive.
Right now i’m in the early stage of getting an overview on maemo.org’s bug database and finding out which options/tools are available that i am used to work with (workflows that i can copy/adjust or workarounds to get the information i want to retrieve), to identify the biggest problems (this covers both code and communication), and to get in touch with the maemo community – send mail, ping me on IRC (andre in #maemo on freenode), or come around and have a drink when you’re in town! :-)

    …and for those who are really interested in finding out what a bugmaster is (or should be), http://tieguy.org/talks/LCA-2005-paper-html/ is probably the best reference. (thanks to Company for reminding)
