Today I finally found the reason why the table in reportbug-ng was not always sorted correctly. The fix was trivial and I'm happy it's finally corrected. As announced last week, reportbug-ng now also can optionally hide closed bugs, which makes reportbug-ng together with the complex queries a great tool for …read more
Until today you could only use reportbug-ng to query the BTS with simple queries like "packagename", "bugnumber", "tag:patch", etc. But the BTS actually supports composite queries like "severity:grave tag:patch" which returns bugreports with severity grave and a patch.

This weekend I finally had the time to have a closer look at this problem. To make a long story short: I have …read more
Today, I finally found the time to apply a patch contributed by Daniel Schaal to reportbug-ng. Among two minor fixes it brings a huge usability improvement: package completion. Whenever you type something to the input field rng suggests package names matching that prefix:read more
Reportbug-NG's ability to filter and sort bugreports in various ways can greatly help triaging bugreports after a certain criterion.
In this example I use the bugs of the KDE team, because they have quite a lot of bugs and are currently on a bug triage.
Two releases ago I tried …read more
It's good to see that reportbug 4 finally has a graphical user interface -- it's GTK, but nobody's perfect :)
Anyways, I'm really glad to see reportbug aiming to improve it's usability.
Reportbug finally shows all the bugreports for a package in a list which is easily filterable. So when you're confronted …read more
Version 1.2 of reportbug-ng now shows the tags of a bug if available. This was long overdue. Now you can for example, quickly search your bugs for the ones with the moreinfo-tag set and sort the resulting list by the date of the last action. This should give you …read more
do you know how to translate QT4 applications with gettext? Looks like QT4 now uses it's own mechanism (lupdate -> .ts -> linguist -> .ts -> lrelease -> .qm) for translating strings, which makes things a bit complicated if the rest of your application (the non GUI part) still uses gettext.
The background …read more
