Bug tracking

Toby Smithe-2
Hi all, Werner,

I've noticed that the mailing list is currently the main way of
tracking bugs. mscore is now distributed by Ubuntu, and soon by
Debian, and will be included in a default Ubuntu Studio (Audio)
installation. As a result, I expect the number of reported bugs to
increase substantially.

It seems to me that the mailing list is an inefficient way to track a
larger number of reports, and so I recommend that anyone interested in
tracking these reports subscribe to the package in Launchpad for
Ubuntu. I would also recommend moving the bug tracker from SourceForge
to Launchpad, as I find SourceForge cumbersome, and Launchpad does
provide a much healthier interface. I realise, however, that this
would be a big change (though that does not affect my advocation).

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mscore/+bug/203250 aka
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1917185&group_id=109430&atid=653454
is a perfect example.

I will also be reporting a couple of bugs regarding usability in the
near future, though this will most likely be done primarily on LP.

Thanks,

Toby Smithe

Re: Bug tracking

Hi,
For some reasons, I'm a window user and an ubuntu user. But I use mscore on windows. I agree that sourceforge bug tracking is far from ergonomic but I'm not sure it's a good thing to put the bug tracking system of a multiplatform app in one given distribution's bug tracking system. I mean if I find a bug on the window release, should I feel a bug on the launchpad platform ? That sounds weird. Is there any other examples of multiplatform app "hosted" on launchpad ?

Launchpad *is* a multiplatform system: whilst it does host Ubuntu's
facilities, it hosts those of many other projects. Just see
http://launchpad.net for a list:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu is Ubuntu
https://launchpad.net/democracy is Miro (an Internet TV and video player)
https://launchpad.net/inkscape (a vector drawing tool)

and there are loads more; those are just a couple of famous examples.
Launchpad is as multiplatform as SourceForge is. Having an mscore
product on Launchpad will allow Ubuntu bugs to link upstream, but not
all upstream bugs will have to be filed in Ubuntu. It would certainly
make tracking bugs across platforms easier.

In fact, someone seems already to have created a product on Launchpad,
which we could take over.

OK ! My misunderstanding. That seems ok.
