Bug Migration Game

Postby brynn » Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:37 am

Hi Friends,
In news from the development side of the Inkscape project, developers are moving to a new bug tracker. It seems there is no real automated way to move the bugs from one tracking system to another. So they have made a game out of it, with prizes and everything. Probably not very many forum users will have the needed skills to participate. But for those who think they might have the right skills, who might be reading this, you can find info here:


If you do have the right skills, please don't hesitate to jump right in! Note the Contact button at the top-right, if you have questions. We probably can't answer questions about it here.

I just had some guidance from developers about this.

For anyone who might have ever reported a bug, it would be very helpful if you could at least transfer your own reports over - following the instructions at the link provided. For this, you don't need technical skills beyond your own, or have to understand what someone else is trying to say. And just moving your own bugs will help a lot!

All you would have to do, is to re-test your bug on 1.0 alpha, which can be found on this page: https://inkscape.org/release/inkscape-1.0/?latest=1. For Windows, there's a link in the gray box (7z packages). For Linux, the link is at the top, in the black section. For Macs, it looks like the only option is to compile it.

Then (assuming it hasn't been fixed) just transfer it over to gitlab (the link above tells everything you need to know).
