  • Please use the bug title for the links' names, so that we don't need to click on the link to know what a bug is about.
  • If you have fixed a bug, enclose it with <s></s> tags.
  • Developers should make sure that, in the dashboard, they are listed as maintainer for both arches (i686 and x86_64) for the package they maintain.
  • Ensure bugs are assigned to the right person (package maintainers do change sometimes).
  • Ensure bugs are in the right top-level project (Release Engineering, Pacman, etc.).
  • If fixes are provided for some bugs, please test and report them as fixed.

Task assigned to ex-developers (=> now orphaned)

Maybe if some is interested in any packaged listed here then can fix and/or adopt them.

  • FS#11312 - Allow for Multiple Maintainers - dan and paul want to do this
  • FS#14270 - show also the package size on web site
  • FS#15865 - Bugtracker attached files should have a MIME type attached/sent


No promises on fixing these on bug day, but if any of the pacman devs or ML readers are around these would be good candidates to look at, especially if you like C and shell script coding more than fixing the above bugs.
