Once again I used Bugzilla to get some statistics on how many bugs are opened, closed in KWin during the last development cycle (statistics are from Final Tagging 4.5 till today). Overall 437 new bugs have been reported and 425 bugs have been "closed". Many thanks again to the bug day – without it the numbers would look worse. So this means that each day 2.4 bugs are reported. Assuming that we spent 10 minutes on each bug (in general Thomas Lübking and I are reading and responding to each bug comment), we spent 8 days just on bug managing. That sounds reasonable, but is very bad as it’s time spent managing and not fixing the bugs. This can be seen in the table below.
Like in my previous reports about 40 % (165) of the new bugs are duplicates. But this time we also faced the problem of the drivers: 12.8 % (56) of all new bugs have been marked as upstream. I also took the time to go through all duplicate crash reports and found another 52 duplicate driver crashes. About 50 % (213) of all bugs are crashes, but only 3 crashes are confirmed and only 9 have been fixed. 24 of the crashes have not been confirmed yet, meaning that the way to reproduce is not clear. Altogether 21.5 % (94) bugs have not been confirmed yet. Apart from the driver bugs our worst problem has been in Desktop Grid and those crashes were fixed early in the cycle.
