given the success of the first two MonetDB-Bug-Days on Oct 06 2005 and Nov
--- we managed to check 460 bug reports, added missing test scripts,
re-opened bugs that still/again fail and filed new bug reports ---
there will by a 3rd MonetDB-Bug-Day to (hopefully) check the remaining ~225
bug reports, and produce proper test scripts for our automatic Nightly
Multi-Platform Regression Test System (aka "TestWeb"; cf.
When: MOnday, Dec 19, 2005, "all day" (or as much time as you can spent)
Where: Mainly at CWI, but you're also welcome to join "virtually" working
from home or any other place in the world;
for those who (again) want to turn the Bug-Day into a Bug-"Party", I
reserved our meeting room (C0,01) from 9:00 - 17:00 --- you need to
bring your own "equipment" though ...
Who: Primarily everyone who is in touch with MonetDB, and/or one of its
companions/front ends (SQL, XQuery, etc.), has rights to check-in to
the MonetDB CVS repository on SourceForge; experiences with
"Mtest.py" (cf. http://monetdb.cwi.nl/monet/src/testing/README) are
helpful, but can also be aquired during the MonetDB-Bug-Day.
What: I will prepare a list of all bugs that have no test script, yet, and
chop this in chunks, and assign each chunk to one participant so
that [s]he can check them, and prepare the respective test scripts.
More detailed instructions will follow before Monday.
Note: Though any help is appreciated, no one is "obliged" to help.
Especially, there is no need to spent the whole day (though nine
will complain if you do ;-)), anyone can join-in and leave whenever
For those of you participating at CWI, there will be free snacks and
soft-drinks during the day (for the time you're "active"; as long as
Furthermore, there will be "real" drinks at the end of the Bug-Day
(for participants, only; as long as supplies lasts; (maximum) amount
per person will be proportional to the number of test scripts added).
I hope to see especially (though not only) participants that I haven't seen
on the previous MonetDB-Bug-Days ;-)
Once again thank you very much for your cooperation!
CU next Monday,
ps: Testing & the TestWeb are not (only?) my "toys"; it's "serious
business", and helps all of you to (1) get a stable and reliable
MonetDB, (2) monitor when your own bug reports get fixed, and (3)
prevent the bugs you once thankfully detected, reported and/or fixed
from occurring again!
