QA-Statistics for old SeaMonkey-bugs

Zur Mozilla-Bugzilla HomepageThis blog post in German languageIn the latest Status Meeting Frank-Rainer Grahl thought about old (UNCONFIRMED?) SeaMonkey bugs in Bugzilla and whether we should do a mass change to Resolution “Expired”. I also would like to get rid of those unclear legacy Bugs, but my concern is that we also might close many reports with real bugs if we do that mass close without individual investigation of every report. Because of this in 2015 I started a systematic review of UNCONFIRMED bugs from a list with 476 of them.

Here a small statistics considering a sample of 156 bugs from that list with changed Status / Resolution:

Status / Resolution Number of bug reports Percent of total
NEW 20 12,82%
DUPLICATE 12 7,69%
FIXED 1 0,64%
INCOMPLETE 69 44,23%
INVALID 10 6,41%
WORKSFORME 38 24,36%
WONTFIX 6 3,85%
Total 156 100,00%

So my estimation “25% real bugs” was not very precise.

Volunteers helping with this review appreciated!
