From: Bastien <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: Someone to oversee Org bugs as reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs? Date: Fri, 11 Dec 2020 06:17:38 +0100 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Dear all, as the subject says: it would be nice to have someone overseeing Org bugs that are reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs. These bugs end up in the Emacs debbugs tracking tool: https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/pkgreport.cgi?package=emacs https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/Bugs.html They are also sent to the bug-gnu-emacs mailing list: https://mail.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-gnu-emacs Volunteering for overseeing these bugs does not mean you have to subscribe to this list or to fix all Org bugs there :) First of all, most users use M-x org-submit-bug-report for Org bugs, which is the preferred way of submitting Org bugs. Secondly, most bugs reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs are bugs against old versions of Org, already fixed upstream. So the idea is just to be able to answer one of these: - "Thanks but I cannot reproduce the bug with the latest Org." - "Thanks, I confirm this is a bug, can you forward it to the Org mailing list at email@example.com?" ... and to make sure that you _close_ the bug report when necessary. It is a very nice way to get _some_ work done for Org/Emacs while also being part of the Emacs maintainance larger team. Who's in? -- Bastien
