areedaI'm new trying to figure out what the bug squad does (besides read bug reports, I got that part).  So I was reading about my favorite thorn in my side VNC server and found one I knew the work around (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-session/+bug/735471).  it was new today, undecided and unassigned.  The work around worked for the reporter.  Should the status change.  I haven't found a bug report to mark it as a duplicate but there is03:47
areeda a discussion somewhere in the forums.03:47
ubot4`Launchpad bug 735471 in gnome-session (Ubuntu) "cannot use xterm under vnc with gnome-session (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New]03:47
areedaubot is pretty cool, what else does it do?03:48
micahgareeda: you can confirm the issue if you can reproduce and if there's enough information for a developer to work on it, you can ask here for it to be marked triaged03:56
areedathanks micahg, it is 100% repeatable and I have more problems with the vnc4server scripts.  I use them on multiple machines04:08
areedaSo, I should mark it as confirmed and maybe add a comment on the other issues?04:08
micahgareeda: no, you should file a separate bug for each issue you are facing04:10
micahgareeda: you can mark it confirmed though :)04:10
areedaThanks, I'll do both04:10
nigelbbdmurray: it does.  Its on my list.  I just need to find the time to get down to it04:37

njinHello, testing today's build apport popup 'Sorry, GSettings Data Conversion closed unexpectly', but clicking on Report Problem another popup said that the problem is in gconf2 and it crashed on an assertion failure, but the message could not be retrieved.Apport does not support reporting these crashes.16:15
njinWhat can i do to file a bug in this case?16:15
njinor better wich file attach to file a valid report?16:17
roadmrnjin: that bug is reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gconf2/+bug/73615916:17

roadmrnjin: if this looks like the same problem you're having, you might want to just indicate you're affected by it in that report16:18
roadmrnjin: I generated that report with today's image plus some updates, so chances are it's the same one you're getting16:18
njinroadmr: thanks, it is surely the same16:19
roadmrnjin: no problem, thanks to you too for letting us know about it :) so I know I'm not the only one with the problem16:21
njinroadmr: sorry if I disturb, can you explain how to force the crash file ?16:24
roadmrnjin: look for the crash file in /var/crash16:25
roadmrnjin: edit it and remove the line that says "UnreportableReason" (I think, it's near the end of the file)16:26
njinroadmr:thanks a lot16:26

njinperfect, is the same16:29
charlie-tcaYeah, somehow, a warning that you need to run a gdb backtrace would be better than what apport does now16:36
cinfantinoI am finding almost every bug I touch has comments made but the triager has not assigned the bug to themselves....aren't we supposed to assign the bug to ourselves when we begin to triage it?17:26
yofelyou only assign bugs to the person that's FIXING them17:29
yofel(the bug status should be 'in progress' at the same time)17:29

yofelif you want to triage kernel bugs ask JFo21:27
njinyofel: thanks21:28
yofelRcart: done, but we usually don't bother setting importance for fixed bugs21:29
Rcartyofel: Thanks, so the importance should be a priority when bugs need fix?21:31
yofelRcart: exactly, read https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Importance21:31
Rcartyofel: I'd read the importance page, but thought that fixed bugs needed an importance too. Now it's clear (;21:37
yofelwell, nothing prevents you from setting them, but we have more important things to spend our little time on usually (i.e. there  are much better ways to spend your time)21:38
RcartSure. Seems to be "optional".21:40
hggdhthe point is that the bug has been fixed, and the fix published. Although having the correct importance might help on future data-mining, it is not a need for now -- the fix is already there22:13
hggdhso we just leave it aside22:13
