canceris there anyone who can help me in fixing bugs in Ubuntu04:22
cancerI'm a B.Tech CSE student and wanna contribute to ubuntu04:22
cancerskill sets are C, C++, Java04:23
eQuiNoX__there is a lotta useful documentation out there - that'd be the place to start cancer04:24
eQuiNoX__have you looked at the ubuntu wiki? you'll find that pretty useful. it details how one should go about bugfixing04:25
eQuiNoX__check out the topic of this channel, documentation link04:25
canceryeah . I'm reading that04:26
cancerbut .. I wanna know what does it require to fix bugs ? like C or C++ or Python ?? which IDE should I use ? where to get those source code from ?04:26
eQuiNoX__i dont think you'll need an IDE. From what I've seen its mostly C, C++, python.04:27
eQuiNoX__Details about getting the source code etc can be found at the wiki04:27
eQuiNoX__also, join #ubuntu-classroom04:28
eQuiNoX__and read the logs of the previous logs of the sessions that have taken place.04:28
cancerok I will do that. And I wanna participate in GSoC 2012 via Ubuntu04:29
cancerwhat should I do ?04:29
cancerI wanna  contribute to Ubuntu forever04:30
eQuiNoX__Well, I'm not sure if Ubuntu'll apply for gsoc so cant help you out much, there.04:30
cancerI have seen there on wiki about GSoC 2012 .04:31
cancerthey have displayed ideas page04:31
cancerit means they might apply for that04:31
eQuiNoX__Probably, maybe they have a channel for that, im not sure04:33
eQuiNoX__IRC channel i.e.04:33

eQuiNoX__hey guys, does the status "needed" for a (security)bug mean that its been triaged but is awaiting a patch?12:26
eQuiNoX__i tried looking at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/BugTriage ; but im not sure. would be glad if someone could clarify12:27
eQuiNoX__thanks in advance!12:27
roignacThere is no such bug status in Launchpad - see https://help.launchpad.net/Bugs/Statuses12:33
roignachowever this might be an imported bug status from external bug - see https://help.launchpad.net/Bugs/Statuses/External12:33

eQuiNoX__in anycase thanks roignac ! :)12:39
roignacwell, that is not a 'bug status', but more like a 'fix required' status12:45
eQuiNoX__i see, thanks again12:54
jdstrandeQuiNoX__: needed in the CVE tracker means that it is confirmed as affecting Ubuntu, and requires a patch13:27

cancerhey there19:16
cancerI wanna start fixing bugs in Ubuntu19:16
cancerwhat should I do ? I went through all the documentation.19:16
hggdhcancer: welcome. Did you read the links on the topic?19:17
cancerbut didn't find where to find the source code19:17
hggdhcancer: there is bug triage, and bug fixing19:17
hggdhthis channel is for triage; for generic help on fixing, there is #ubuntu-motu, #ubuntu-packaging (and the specialised channels, like #ubuntu-desktop)19:18
canceryeah .. bug triaging is sort of prioritising bugs .. bug fixing is checking for errors in source code19:19
hggdhsort of19:19
cancerI am very new to this .. so i think triaging will be new place to start with .. what do u say ?19:20
cancerI'm a B.Tech CSE student ..n my skill sets are C, C++, Java19:20
hggdhtriaging is finding (1) if it is a real issue;(2) what is the probable source of the issue;(3) if all needed documentation is available19:20
hggdhthe issue (if real) may not be code, but docs, etc19:21
hggdhoh yes, add to triaging (4) reproducing, and steps to reproduce19:22
hggdhif you are just interested in programming, this is really the wrong channel19:22
cancerohhkk .. so where do u think I should start from if I'm interested in real bug fixing .. sort of coding19:22
hggdhalthough I cannot see a programmer that does not understand triaging also -- they do exist, but they are flawed, IMHO19:23
hggdhcancer: the channels I pointed to above19:24
