My Goals for 2011
Well, I’ve decided that I should try to put my goals into words, so then I can go back to them at the end of the year, and see how I’ve done. I always will try to set goals, then modify them halfway through. Maybe if I post them for the Internets to see, I shall be held accountable 😉
- Get the number of UNCO Bugs in Firefox down to the 2,000 range and steady. This doesn’t mean closing them all as INCO. I had to do that to get the numbers down to a humanly reachable level. But now that they are almost there (I consider ~4,000 as humanly manageable) I instead to go through and change quantity for quality. Hopefully this will not backfire on me, but I do intend to clean BMO up as much as I can, thus improving it for triagers and developers alike.
- Improve the Triage process. I am going to try to brainstorm with other triagers as much as possible, and then maybe this year get some of the ideas that we discussed at the Summit into reality.
- Improve Triage relationship with Developers. I would like to see someday a developer or module peer to come to the triage community and be able to say “I have this query that I would like help in going through”. And the triage community would do it. I like the idea of bug days that we used to have, but those ended up turning into just “old bug cleanup days”, rather boring and uninspiring while important non the less. If we can get developers and triagers working together, then I think we can make Bugzilla work for us, not against us.
- And other bits and pieces. But these 3 main goals will be enough to keep me busy for a while at least 😉
