Alright folks, as Jeremy Kemper mentioned I'm working on a set of
"triage" scripts for the Rails trac using RFuzz to go through all the
tickets and clean them out. I've talked this over with the core guys,
and they're behind it.
I'm calling this set of scripts "THE MAGGOT" thanks to hasmanyjosh.
Basically THE MAGGOT (all caps) will be run against the trac tickets
periodically and will auto-reject any tickets that don't meet certain
The goal of this is to keep the rails patches and trac tickets focused
and actionable. Your tickets won't actually go away, they'll just be
flagged "wontfix" with a terse little message about what's wrong with
Everyone should take a look at the list and feel free to comment on the
results. REMEMBER NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE YET. We're just exploring it.
Ok, first, here's the writeup about the criteria and the list of tickets
on the chopping block:
And here's the ticket listings:
WHAT TO DO
* If you have a ticket in the list (http://pastie.caboo.se/9354), look
at what it says is wrong and fix that.
* If your patch is really old, just mark it "resolved: wontfix".
* If your patch still applies, but maybe isn't tested with the latest
1.1.6 then retest, regenerate, and resubmit.
* Finally, 1.1.6 isn't listed as a version yet, so if your patch applies
to 1.1.6 then just set it to 1.1.1.
Alright, thanks a bunch folks and enjoy your weekend.
