The goal of this bug-day is to check for: simple step-by-step instructions, reproducibility, and most of all, come up with test-cases for reproducing the bugs. This will enable the KDE Pim developers to deal with bugs more easily, and so have more time left to actually fix them. When you have added either a test-case or step-by-step instructions for the reproduction of a bug, please list it in the appropriate section below, so that a second triager can see if they can get your instructions/test-case to work correctly. This page provides an excellent explanation of how to create a test-case. This page also has useful information on how to not mis-mark bugs. In particular, "duplicates are hard". KDE Pim doesn't have as many duplicates as some applications, and we don't want to claim things are duplicates when they aren't. So do not look too hard for them, and make sure to double check them with someone else, preferably one of the developers before marking/closing.We especially don't want to create more work for developers!
Be sure to join #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net, as this is where the bug-day will be coordinated. (You can even join now!)
You should either be working with KDE Pim from KDE 4 (either 4.1 or newer is best or SVN trunk) for testing these bugs.
If you come across a bug with a testcase in the text, put it under the testcase section. If it isn't marked "testcase" in the title, make a note of that. Check that the testcase works! (And doesn't work!)
Most importantly, we need to create testcases. These are time-consuming, but extremely useful and really help out developers.
If something has no clear instructions on how to reproduce it, or has little useful information, add a comment asking the reporter for more detail. Then list it in the bugs awaiting feedback section. Be polite, we want to be nice to our bug reporters!
Is it a big bug?
Prioritizing is good. If a major website doesn't work, that is important.
Let's keep track of them.
Keep an eye on what the "Version:" fields say in Bugzilla. If it says "unspecified", it won't show up in developer's searches for 4.0 bugs! If the bug is not reproducable in KDE4, change the version field to match what the other one says, i.e. to match version the bug was first reported in. If the bug is reproducable, change the version field to the newest version of KDE that the bug is reproducable (be explicit as to what version of 4 you are using, mentioning whether it is a source build or which distro the packages come from). If you don't have bugzilla permissions to change the version field, mark it below that it needs version field change.
|This policy here is different from the one that we used to triage konqueror. In konqueror we still do not update version fields to the latest version. This only applies for kmail.|
Please list bugs here to get a second opinion before making the change in bugzilla. This also gives a record of what we've done for the developers to check.
Add the triaged keyword
All bugs that you investigate during the bug day, whether they appear on this page or not, should have the keyword triaged added to them. If you don't have bugzilla permissions, list all bugs needing that keyword added in the Bugs to be marked as triaged section below, even if you have already added them to another section of this page.
Keep this page updated!
After adding triaged bugs on this page, you should keep an eye on their bugzilla status. Add yourself on the CC field in bugzilla to be informed about updates. When a bug is closed on bugzilla, it should be updated on this page.
You can do this with the tag <s>...</s>
Add your comments even on bugzilla for a more complete feedback by users and developers. When you comment on bugzilla, be sure to include the version of KDE you tested on (revision number and trunk/branch if it's SVN).
Please select a period of bugs from the Division of Labour section below and mark your name next to it and mark it with your irc nickname to show that you are working on it. When you have completed all the bugs in that section, please mark it as complete.
For each bug, try and reproduce it as described in the report. Then list it in the appropriate section below. If you wish to close or mark as duplicate a bug, please list it here even if you have the bugzilla permissions to do so, in order to get a second opinion from another triager. This will help to reduce the number of incorrect actions taken on bugs.
Tell developers what you are testing with. (If you expect to upgrade between now and BugDay, put what version you are using now next to the bugs/comments that you put on this page.)
Please give distro/version or SVN branch/trunk with revision below:
|| KDE version used for testing
||svn trunk r795406
|Please be sure to sign every bug or comment you add to this page with your irc nickname. You can use the wiki markup ~~~ to insert your wiki username automatically (but only do this if it is the same as your IRC nickname, otherwise write your IRC nickname in by hand).|
Division of Labour
Please choose a month that is not already taken and then use the bugs.kde.org query in the table to search for the bugs. Please mark you irc nickname in the table below to show which month's bugs you are working on to avoid duplication of effort.

Below lists the various sections for completed bugs. This aids everyone in double checking each other's work. In addition this allows those of us that don't have bugzilla permissions to list bugs so that the folks with the permissions can follow up.
The remainder of the page is separated into sub-pages to reduce edit conflicts. The best way to work with this is to enable section editing by going to "My preferences" > "editing" > "Enable section editing via  links". When you click edit you will automatically edit the subpage.
If a bug is still present in current KMail and does not fit into any of the categories below, there is no need to list it on this page. You should, however, add the Keyword "triaged" to it in bugs.kde.org.
Bugs to be marked as TRIAGED
Bugs that need the triaged keyword adding to them should be listed here even if they are already in another section of this page. This is a convenience for people who do not yet have bugs.kde.org permissions.
Bugs no longer present in 4.x
If a bug is reported against a version of KDE before 4.0, but the bug can no longer be reproduced in KDE 4.x, then it should be listed here. Please do not close the bug. The KDE PIM developers would like to check each one before they are closed.

Bugs needing version field changed
Bugs should be listed here if their version field is invalid (i.e. it is listed as "unspecified") or they are still present in KDE 4, so that the version field can be corrected. The version should be set to the newest version of KDE that the bug is reproducable, or to the version it was reported if it is listed as "unspecified" and it's not reproducable.
If a bug fits another category, put it there and add the notation that the version field needs changing.
|This policy here is different from the one that we used to triage konqueror. In konqueror we still do not update version fields to the latest version. This only applies for KDE PIM.|

Bugs to be marked as INVALID
Bugs which are no longer valid go here. A link to the bug and why it qualifies as invalid should be provided.
Some examples of when a bug should be closed as INVALID:
- The reported behavior is not a bug
- The bug is completely unrelated to KDE
This list is not exhaustive. If you feel a bug is invalid for any other reason, be sure to list it here, mentioning why you think it is invalid.
bug #110737 - After switching to Kontact Introduction, switching back by clicking on component has no effect. After talking to ereslibre i marked this bug as Invalid. timocin
Bugs to be marked as DUPLICATE
Duplicates found should be placed here with a link to the bug which you think it is a duplicate of.
bug #160850 - crash, printing events. still reproducible in trunk r865573. Probably duplicate of bug #160260. Lemma

Bugs needing users with particular setups
Bugs that require particular software or hardware that you don't have available should be listed here with a description of the non-standard requirement.
- bug #77071 - Outlook needed for testing incoming events (using sendmail). FiNeX
- bug #92814 Requires the root (/) partition to be full. I suspect this bug is still valid, though. gkiagia

Non english locales
Bugs requiring non-English locales should be listed here, along with the locale they require.
- bug #153290 - "This day in history" wikipedia plugin, translation issue. Needs any other language than english. Lemma
Bugs needing attention from KDE PIM developers
Add bugs here if you need to find out whether the observed behavior is intended, or if there's some other reason that it would be useful for a KDE PIM developer to take a look. Make sure you indicate why the bug needs attention from them.
|Always bump policy decisions to developers.|

If a bug causes a problem that is likely to affect a large number of users, please list it here.
Bugs awaiting feedback
|NB. Feedback should only be requested for bugs if you have tried and failed to reproduce them or if the report contains insufficient information to try and reproduce the bug. Requesting feedback for a bug should be seen as a last resort only.|
