FreeDesktop.Org at a Glance — Resolve & Fixed Bugs

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

Best Regards,

    Thanks for these stats! I appreciate these number, and the underlying meaning of these numbers (the fixes that are made).

  2. Dennis says :

    Is there any possibility to create some automation of this task? (and maybe to do this on the official server/side, maybe ask at

  3. joelmadero says :

    We are looking into this but it’s quite a task to automate, ultimately we’re hoping to use PyUno to do this. I’ll discuss it with website team going forward, first we need a clear idea of what stats we want to maintain. After I get about a month of data, the QA team and I are going to look at what we can do with it

  4. dennis says :

    any updates? New stats? XD

    • joelmadero says :

      I just did February stats last Friday so I’ll be writing up a blog this week hopefully. They are quite a bit more extensive so I may do several posts about them, dunno if demand for stats is that high 😉
