Who is fixing Bugzilla bugs these days? – part2
Two years and a half ago, I put a graph showing the contributions of main Bugzilla developers. Doing this exercice again on a broader time frame, the results are pretty dramatic (click the image for a larger view):
This table shows you the top 5 contributors per major Bugzilla release, and the third row shows you the percentage of bugs fixed by the top two contributors compared to all bugs fixed for a given release. As you can see, mkanat and I are the two main contributors since Bugzilla 2.20 (released in September 2005), and the ratio of bugs fixed by us two compared to all contributions keeps increasing, reaching 75% (!) for the coming Bugzilla 3.6 release. Knowing that we both have a real life and a day job, I hope you better understand why we cannot fix all bugs and implement all requests for enhancement in a timely manner, and why we have to prioritize what to do next, meaning that some of your requests won’t be addressed in the near future (/me waves some of the Mozilla folks who like to complain rather easily). As always in the open-source world, if you want something quickly, you are welcome to contribute!
