In an effort to address the volume of unfixed bugs with patches we have created an Ubuntu Review Team for reviewing them. I’ve written a launchpadlib script that will subscribe the team to any bugs with patches where the patch has been added after February 1st. Depending on the throughput of that queue we will start subscribing the team to older patches. You can view the bugs the team is currently subscribed to here.

The team is also setup with a mailing list for receiving bug mail. By subscribing to the mailing list you will receive notification of these bugs with patches. The process for handling these bug reports is being documented (its a work in progress as we encounter different types of bugs) in the Ubuntu wiki.

And of course there are graphs to track the progress of the queues. Please help to make Ubuntu even better by reviewing these patches and adding them to the proper queue for sponsoring!

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Sponsorship/SponsorsQueue should be updated.

    Looking at the graphs (Patch queue for year), the main sponsors queue needs more love.

    So, how do you suggest we deal with the 26 paper cuts with patches?

    What can I / we (nuSoftware) do to get nuBuilder included into the next Ubuntu version.

    Last time this question was asked its status was changed to

    “importance: Undecided → Wishlist”


    I feel if I don’t ask again, nothing will be done.

    Steven, this should point you in the right direction – https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages. Do you think it would be worthwhile to modify my automated reply to include a link to that?

    There doesn’t seem to be a link called https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages

    (it says “This page does not exist yet. You can create a new empty page, or use one of the page templates. “)
