digitalmars.D.announce - The #dbugfix Campaign Round 1 Report

reply Mike Parker <aldacron gmail.com> writes:
I planned an extended vacation with my wife around DConf this 
year and, despite my intentions before we left, fell quite far 
behind on my D duties. I'm in the process of getting caught up 
with everything, and that includes publishing the results of the 
first round of the #dbugfix campaign.

As far as I'm concerned, it was a successful run. Now, I'm eager 
to improve upon it. Send some more #dbugfix nominations out into 
the ether and, while you're at it, volunteer to review some PRs. 
The issue queue isn't going to shrink all that much until the PR 
queue gets smaller.

Thanks to everyone who nominated an issue or voiced support for a 
nomination in Round 1, and thanks in advance to those who will in 
the future!

Please don't. There is no source code in said page and the rules of the subreddit make it pretty clear.

This sort of community-centric post doesn't belong there. We have to be careful not to reinforce the perception that we're spamming the sub.

It faded out. It went well in the first round, then I got only a handful in the second round (all from two people), then it went quiet. There were only two people actively in communication with me about volunteering, and the small pool of issues that did come in were beyond what they had the time or knowledge to fix. So without enough #bugfix posts or tweets coming in, I finally gave up. What I can do, though, is assemble a list of all of the #dbugfix tweets and forum posts that I'm aware of and send them to you. Then you can choose some to work on and we can do a blog post about it. Maybe we can get something going again from that.
