greg-gwow, I'm getting the deluge of remote bug travker imported comments emails :) Fun times remembering these old bugs01:55
rusiviCan someone please check out bug 420098 for wishlist Importance?02:00

ubot2Launchpad bug 420089 in wine1.2 (Ubuntu) (and 1 other project) "wine: items left in nautilus 'Open with..' menu even if Windows program or wine package is removed (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/42008902:00
greg-grusivi: I assume you made that last comment? It would be useful if you could link that LP bug to the upstream wine bug where that is a known issue.02:10
greg-gI would, personally, consider this a bug, not a new feature, but, I will defer to upstream's opinion02:11
rusivigreg-g: Sorry for the perceived lack of follow-through. I did not do a bug check for this, however , this is from personal experience. Please see following forum for more on this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9702619 As well, I'll do a bug check for this and report back.02:12
greg-gno need to apologize, rusivi. :) It just sounded like you had experience with upstream and might be able to easily find that bug in their bugtracker02:13
rusivigreg-g: regarding uninstalling apps installed in WINE: http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#uninstall_app02:13
rusiviThat specifically mentions how clean uninstall of apps in WINE is not implemented (well). I extrapolated that to cleanly removing icons installed on app behalf via WINE02:14
greg-gmakes sense02:15
rusivigreg-g: I've noticed the same phenomenon in newest dev WINE in Maverick.02:16
greg-gFor a wishlist bug to be really useful, though, it should be either reported upstream so the developers are aware of the issue/request or linked to an upstream bug report so we know it is at least on their radar02:16
rusivigreg-g: np02:16
greg-gbut, I can certainly mark this as wishlist in LP for you :)02:17
greg-g(done)02:17
rusivigreg-g: ty you rock! I'll post the upstream web link mentioned earlier.02:17
greg-gnp, rusivi. Thanks for your help triaging.02:18
rusivigreg-g: I've been on a triaging spree. Just did all virtualbox, VLC, gcalc, KeePassX and finishing WINE. Basically, I'm triaging package bugs I've bugged myself previously as I have had some measure of experience with them.02:22
rusivigreg-g: From my view, many older bugs are fixed in newer package versions, just need to give reporter incentive to do so hehe02:23
* yofel hugs rusivi02:23
yofelthanks for the work┬░02:23
yofels/┬░/!/02:23
rusiviAlso, many upstreams don't want to hear about bugs in old versions of their packages (understandably so)02:24
rusiviBeen there, got flamed for that!02:24
rusivihehe02:24
rusiviyofel: np least I can do to give back after Ubuntu has given me so much!02:25

micahgrusivi: also when looking at bugs like bug 623927, you need to see why it failed in the logs and try to ascertain why it happened04:08
ubot2Launchpad bug 623927 in vlc (Ubuntu) "package mozilla-plugin-vlc 1.0.6-1ubuntu1.1 failed to install/upgrade: unable to install new version of `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libvlcplugin.so': No such file or directory (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/62392704:08
micahgrusivi: also, if there's an upstream bug, you can request the bug be set to triaged04:11
rusivimicahg: Thank you for reviewing bug 623927. From my view, VLC upstream does not want to hear about old version of their packages. If user upgrades to Maverick, they update their VLC, and problem will most likely be resolved.04:15
ubot2Launchpad bug 623927 in vlc (Ubuntu) "package mozilla-plugin-vlc 1.0.6-1ubuntu1.1 failed to install/upgrade: unable to install new version of `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libvlcplugin.so': No such file or directory (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/62392704:15
micahgrusivi: this bug isn't about upstream at all, it's about an install error04:15
micahgrusivi: also, we have to support what's in the distro even if upstream won't04:16
micahgrusivi: also, when there's an upstream bug, you should just request the bug to be marked triaged if there's enough information upstream04:17
rusivimicahg: I attempt to adopt the view of the upstream devs for the package I triage with a little bit more flexibility.04:17
micahgrusivi: there are 2 sides to bugs, upstream and ours, you can follow upstream's views when upstreaming bugs, but with regard to our bug task, we have policies how the bugs are handled04:19
rusivimicahg: As well, I'm not a dev, so my diving into the crash log and coming up with a more germane solution is probably not gonna happen.04:20
micahgrusivi: ok, so for bugs you don't feel comfortable with, either ask questions or move on04:20
rusivimicahg: k04:20

micahgrusivi: have you read the guide on how to triage?05:32
rusivimicahg: I don't think everything is a wishlist ;) However, did you read the upstream bug?05:32
micahgrusivi: yes, there's an error on launch, that seems like a bug in wine, not a feature request05:32
micahgit's P2 normal which isn't a wishlist importance upstream05:33
rusivi "Austin English      2010-08-26 09:09:36 CDT With wine-1.3.1-182-g56b8d5d, I get: austin@midna:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/TeraCopy$ wine TeraCopy.exe fixme:psapi:EnumDeviceDrivers ((nil), 0, 0x6fea70): stub fixme:psapi:EnumDeviceDrivers (0x580000, 64, 0x6fea70): stub and it hangs. Though based on the program's description, it may be installing device drivers, which won't work in wine."05:33
micahgrusivi: using the drivers would be wishlist, not launching because it can't handle something seems like a bug05:35
micahgIMHO05:35
rusivimicahg: my cursory understanding of this is that it doesn't launch b/c the drivers cannot be installed.05:35

micahgcjae: file the ones you feel are important06:30
rusivicjae: if you have a video capable camera or camcorder please documenting this, then you would bug against your graphics card driver via ubuntu-bug package06:30
cjaehhmm could take a pic I guess06:31
cjaeI am registered a ubuntu bug reporting, but I get tones of email form it too even from unsupported distros still :/06:32
rusivicjae: However, being realistic, if the only time you notice a graphical distortion is upon log out your bug will probably not be on high priority... but your welcome to bug! Could be indicative of some other, known related graphical issue.06:32
cjaepressing escape seems to fix it06:32
micahgrusivi: that depends on the bug06:32
cjaewell its bad cause unless you know to press escape you have to drop tp tty and login that way (which puts terminal in root mode btw (using startx))06:34

charlie-tcaIt is kind of nuts to try and keep up with18:18
jibelmost of the time regression-potential is a backseat for regression-release bugs.18:18
jibelSo, we come with the proposition to remove the regression-potential tag and tag with regression-release and nominate for the affected release whatever the release is ( devel or release)18:19
jibelwe would have 3 tags to track regressions18:19
jibelregression-release if the affected release is the release18:20
jibelregression-updates if the regression comes from updates18:20
jibelregression-proposed if the regression  is in -proposed18:20
yofelisn't nomination only for SRUs? wouldn't adding a release tag as apport already does it be sufficient?18:20
hggdhno, not really, yofel. First, a regression may impact more than one release;18:21
jibelYou need to be able to track what is the status of the regression for each release.18:21
hggdhsecond, the apport release tag only tells us on what release it was found18:21
yofelwe can add tags for those releases, changing tags is easier than suffer from a rejected nomination18:21
charlie-tcaIt would certainly simply the use of the tags. And, if it is fixed before the devel release is final, it does not really matter what the tag was.18:22
yofeljibel: right, bug only developers can open release-tasks18:22
yofels/bug/but/18:22
hggdh(a bit late, but...) yofel: third, a regression is always an SRU candidate18:22
charlie-tcaYou would still have the tag, but at least the reporter will know if it will be fixed in the releases available, too.18:23
yofelhggdh: sure, but how do you handle it if someone nominates a release that it doesn't seem to affect, the nomination gets rejected, and then someone notices that it affects the release after all, you can't re-nominate afaik18:24
jibelbdmurray ^18:24
hggdhyofel: package maintainers, and some others, can override (AFAICR)18:24
pedro_yofel, well that's a lp bug that needs to be fixed ;-)18:24
bdmurrayI agree with pedro_ here18:25
nigelbcookies for fixing it ;)18:25
pedro_and what hggdh said is true18:25
pedro_you can't renominate but you can approve that18:25
pedro_so i think we can workaround that for now adding a comment and pinging someone with the rights on IRC or by email to approve that18:26
yofelok, I guess I can live with that18:26
pedro_good point though yofel18:26
yofelbtw, wouldn't it make more sense to make the bug supervisor open release task and the maintainer can close it won't fix if necessary?18:27
hggdhthis is actually what happens -- the maintainers close wontfix if needed18:28
hggdhbut I would rather have the nomination with less access restrictions18:28
pedro_the approval/rejection of the nomination you mean?18:29
hggdhyes18:29
pedro_cause everybody can nominate18:29
pedro_ah yes18:29
yofelsure, but I know bugs that are fixed in the devel release and that would justify a SRU, but nobody is there that knows how to do it, and later they're forgotten as the bug is 'fix released'18:30
jibelyofel, an SRU is not necessarily a regression.18:30
yofelright, I'm getting off topic here, sorry18:31
jibeland that's 2 different workflow.18:31
jibelthe developer needs a mean to efficiently track regression.18:31
jibeland we need to make it simpler for the bugsquad to clearly triage regression bugs.18:33
jibelany other question/comment/complain ?18:34
yofelok, so 3 tags with nominations it is then?18:34
jibelyofel, right18:34
yofelgood,  +^18:34
yofel*+118:34
hggdhyes -- actually, pretty much like it is done nowadays with apport, 3 tags + the release tag it was found on18:35
hggdhand nominations for the affected releases (as they are identified)18:35
* DrKenobi just arrived!18:35
hggdhcheers, DrKenobi18:36
DrKenobihi! hggdh18:36
hggdhanybody disagrees? If so, why?18:36
charlie-tcaagreed here18:36
hggdhall: please note that this is not yet in place -- we are trying to find out itf it makes sense, and if there is a gain18:37
nigelb+1 ; sounds good overall.  yofel did raise the concerns I'd have.18:38
yofelI guess it makes sense to check all -potential bugs and use the new policy for natty?18:38
hggdhyofel: yes, as soon as we have agreement from all (meaning triagers and -devel)18:40
hggdhoh18:40
hggdhone more thing:18:40
hggdhIf a bug is tagged regression-<whatever> I think the bug should contain data on what was the last working version18:41
hggdhideally, this would be the full version string of the affected package, but I could settle for Ubuntu version...18:41
charlie-tcaThat makes sense. Otherwise it is pretty hard to determine it even is a regression18:42
yofelagreed18:42
hggdhcool18:42
hggdhany more comments on that?18:42
hggdhOK. Before moving on: please comment as needed on the ML; I will put up a wiki page with the options we considered, and pros/cons on each18:44
hggdhand will announce it on the MLs18:44
hggdhnow, going on: Review of the ReportingBugsAlternate page18:44
hggdhhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/MohamedAmineILIdrissi/ReportingBugsAlternate18:44
hggdhWhat do you think?18:45
hggdh(keep in mind that we intend to replace the current ReportingBugs with this version)18:45
charlie-tcaI thought it was a good re-write.18:45
DrKenobilooks great!18:45
yofelnice page, I was looking for the 'writing a useful bug report' section at first until I noticed he merged it into the reporting steps18:45
hggdhyeah, kudos to devildante for the work!18:45
charlie-tcaOther than the idea that people seem to think server editions don't count as valid release versions, it looks good18:46
hggdhoops18:46
* hggdh goes back hunting for this18:46
yofeloh right, he removed 6.06 ^^18:47
charlie-tcato clarify, 6.06 and 8.04 are still valid versions. 6.06 is good for another year, and 8.04 for three more, and people still need to report bugs in them.18:47
yofel8.04 is listed I think18:47
hggdhright, thank you.18:47
* hggdh will add in 6.0618:48
yofelthe extra options section will need an update btw, since the last LP release you can set an initial status/importance/assigned person/milestone and maybe other things dependent on the permissions too18:49
jfiwhen a bug exist in a ubuntu release, but has been fixed upstream, should we register a bug in launchpad or just wait the synchronization ?18:50
yofelat least it needs a new screenshot, the current one is too large18:50
jcastrojfi: if the bug already exists link it18:50
jcastro(more often than not I found they are already reported in lp)18:51
hggdhOK. I updated the ReportingBugsAlternate with Dapper Drake18:51
DrKenobiThe images should have a frame, they are a bit confusing18:51
hggdhDrKenobi: please feel free to add it in ;-)18:52
jfijcastro, I did not find it in LP, it is quite recent, fixed the 09/10, appears in ubuntu since this morning, but maybe I miss it18:52
hggdhAll: please update the page as needed18:52
hggdhany other comments here?18:52
hggdhif not... Open Mike: anybody wants to raise an issue for us?18:53
charlie-tcaumm, the last two or three times I wanted to use apport-collect, it would refuse until I subscribed to the bug. It doesn't really want anyone but the original reporter to add to the bug,.18:53
nigelbKernel folks love that feature.18:53
yofelcharlie-tca: it should tell you that you weren't subscribed to the bug18:54
yofelcharlie-tca: and that was implemented to reduce apport-collect spam18:54
charlie-tcaIt does. Something like "you didn't file this, you are not subscribed, you can not do this"...18:54
DrKenobihggdg, I'll try to do it this week18:54
nigelbAlso, it is fairly older feature.18:54
yofelright, might not be the best formulation, but it is accurate18:54
hggdhcharlie-tca: perhaps a better error message would help?18:55
charlie-tcaBut we have it in the page to use apport-collect, shouldn't we tell them to subscribe first?18:55
charlie-tcaooops18:55
charlie-tcanever mind, misread the paragraph18:55
shadeslayerbtw.. my bug control application is still pending .. ( just thought i should let you guys know :D )18:56
yofelhggdh: ^ (he as a +1 from me and pedro)18:56

algnodhi, i am new to triaging and i am wondering if someone has some time to spare to walk me through a triaging example22:47
jibelrusivi, please don't change confirmed/triaged bugs in synaptic. thank you.22:49
rusivijibel: k np22:50
micahgrusivi: pehaps you should look at new/incomplete bugs22:50
rusivijibel: What about bugs that have not had any progress since End of Life releases?22:51
jibelrusivi, EOL doesn't mean that the bug is gone. Try to reproduce it with the latest release.22:52
rusivijibel: I thought asking bug reporter to update and report back, simultaneously marking a confirmed/triaged bug incomplete was in order. What do you think is best?22:53
rusivijibel: in EOL case only btw22:53
rusiviBTW, as per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status -> "If you have to ask the reporter questions, set the bug to Incomplete"22:54
nigelbrusivi: Just emphasizing what micahg said, don't assume something is fixed.  Test and confirm that its fixed please.  You just closed something as fix released, have you verified it?22:55
rusivinigelb: Which bug specifically are you referring to?22:55
jibelrusivi, for synaptic at least, when it's confirmed/triaged the issue is still relevant even if it's EOL.22:56

nigelbI didn't have access to an ubuntu system when I was triaging the patch (was on a debian box)22:58
