Well as I tend to lean towards lots of stats, I am at it again. I’ve been pulling a snapshot of all FDO bugs daily (missed one day) for the past couple weeks, I hope to use these snapshots to get a core set of stats for QA purposes, here is my first “snapshot of a snapshot” 😉
One of the most telling statistics for LibreOffice is the number of bugs which are marked RESOLVED (encompassing a few sub categories) and more importantly RESOLVED – FIXED which is a designation which says “yes indeed there was a bug, but a patch has been committed to fix it”. Below is a table which shows data pertaining to these two things (RESOLVED & RESOLVED – FIXED) since 1/15/2013.
|DATE||Total # of Bugs Marked “RESOLVED”||Resolved Bugs Per Day||Sum of Resolved Bugs Per Day||Total # of Bugs Marked “FIXED”||Fixed Bugs Per Day||Sum of Fixed Bugs Per Day|
|January 15th, 2013||7657||3226|
|January 16th, 2013||7676||19||19||3233||7||7|
|January 17th, 2013||7697||21||40||3242||9||16|
|January 18th, 2013||7706||9||49||3247||5||21|
|January 19th, 2013||7724||18||67||3249||2||23|
|January 20th, 2013||7732||8||75||3250||1||24|
|January 21st, 2013||75||24|
|January 22nd, 2013||7756||24||99||3258||8||32|
|January 23rd, 2013||7767||11||110||3261||3||35|
|January 24th, 2013||7788||21||131||3272||11||46|
|January 25th, 2013||7806||18||149||3278||6||52|
|January 26th, 2013||7815||9||158||3283||5||57|
|January 27th, 2013||7824||9||167||3285||2||59|
|January 28th, 2013||7842||18||185||3293||8||67|
The information above is a bit messy but all in all here are some high points:
- In the past 2 weeks or so we’ve marked 185 bugs as RESOLVED
- Of those 185, 67 were marked as FIXED — again, this means that there was a confirmed bug that was fixed
- Every day there was at least 1 bug fixed
- The best day was January 24th, where 11 bugs were fixed in approximately a 24 hour period
While numbers alone can’t prove the tremendous amount of work done by developers on a given day — as example consider a day where only 1 bug is fixed but that single bug is hundreds of lines of code — the numbers are promising that we are daily achieving incredible progress towards our goal to make LibreOffice the best, most comprehensive, office suite available.
Just to add a nice looking chart to this data, here is a visual of bugs marked RESOLVED & bugs marked FIXED per day.
I’ll end it here with saying a big THANK YOU to all of the developers, QA, Marketing, UI, locale, documentation, etc.. etc… that make this project possible – without each of you, we would be left with nothing.
Thanks all, until next time
