Re: Potential blockers for 2.16

So I was thinking about how I could identify some of the major issues

what I came up with:

         where b.creation_ts  > DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 30 DAY)
           and b.bug_status != 'RESOLVED'
           and b.bug_id = d.dupe_of
      group by b.bug_id
        having count(1) >= 5;

For the non-SQL savvy, this query finds all bugs in the last
month that are not resolved, and have 5 or more duplicates filed against

Out of these, it appears that only 353348 has a (untested) patch to fix
the issue.

350758 and 352686 seem like the most critical blockers here, as they
have the most duplicates.
I think we should block the release on these two bugs.

Please discuss (let me know if I should send this to another m-l for
discussion - I don't know if release-team@ is the appropriate place for
discussion to take place)

Awesome, thanks for looking at this!

Bug 350758 is actually irrelevant to Gnome 2.16; the stack trace shows
it crashing in liboobs which, as previously announced, will not be
part of the 2.16 release.  (we are using gnome-system-tools 2.14.x
instead).  Bug 351376 is irrelevant as well.

All duplicates of bug 352736 were filed by the same person as the
reporter of bug 352736; in fact, all descriptions and stack traces are
identical, so this bug represents someone just resubmitting like

Fer has a patch in bug 353348, which he says he asked for r-t approval
for in the bug (which I think I remember seeing the last couple days;
I'll double check...).  So, hopefully that one should be taken care

Of the bugs in your list, 4 are needinfo.  I don't like holding up a
release for a needinfo bug, because it could be weeks or even months
before the additional information requested is received.  However, a
quick call to action on the bugsquad or gnome-love to try to get
people to reproduce and provide the extra needed information might be

I agree with you about bug 352686, as does Kjartan as mentioned in a
separate email.  We should probably make an announcement / call for
help.  The evo bug brought up by Nickolay should probably be added to
the list too given the sheer number of duplicates.  So the libgnomeui
bug you point out and Nickolay's evo bug sound like good blocker
candidates to me.

How does everyone else feel about blocking the release on these two
bugs?  If we do so, we should probably send out an email soon, stating
that we're doing so, reminding that hard code freeze lasts until the
release, and calling for help in fixing those bugs.

Thanks Brent,
