2016-07-06 07:15 UTC (update involved developers)
I decided to start a new competition, and the award again is a SeaMonkey-Coffee-Mug — this is not an official SeaMonkea/Mozilla-campaign.
Who will be the first new developer who contributes 10 bug-fixes which have become pushed to the code?
The Bugfix Coffee Mug Competition:
The goal will be to get fixed many SeaMonkey-Bugs with the help of new developer volunteers. So well known key players like developers with more than 4 pushed fixes (for all SeaMonkey) who started contributing before July 2015, supporters from SeaMonkey:Supporters, Council-members, other users listed at dev/project-areas, /Modules/All#SeaMonkey (all: state 2016-05-31 18:00 UTC) or users with more than 50 “touched” Bugs on Mozilla.Bugzilla since 2015-01-01 will not be eligible. I will donate the missing amount for the coffee mug, and so I will decide who the award winner will be. The competition will run until the first new developer volunteer succeeded in getting 10 bug-fixes to the code, but not longer than until 2016-08-31 24:00 UTC. My decision will be final. Only patches attached after 2016-05-31 will be counted.
The winner will receive a coffee mug from the SeaMonkey shop — besides a shoutout on all communication channels like all other participants 🙂
And because this is only fun, not a quality competition (it would be easy to do the same small hyperlink fix for 10 localizations), a second coffee-mug will be offered for the same group of participants as a reward for a really ambitious bugfix pushed to the SeaMonkey code. The decision what bug fix deserves the reward will be done during a Status Meeting.
Good luck! I will add a list of all participants (who will get an additional invitation by email) below. If you want to suggest yourself or someone else please use a comment here.
