Developer Summit

Create "agents" to deal with bugs and alert people about them

2012-05-08 16:15..17:00 in Jr. Ballroom 2

Rationale: We have lots and lots of bugs filed on a daily basis, bugs that could, given a set of heuristics, be automatically triaged. By triaged we mean flagged as important/unimportant. We want to do that with some level of certainty, to avoid missing important reports but removing the need of manually triaging every single bug filed against Ubuntu packages.

Goal: Have a script or a set of scripts that automatically do the first round of triage, removing useless or not likely to be useful bug reports, and raising the priority of the potential issues whenever they happen. Remove the need of worrying about triaging all bugs and let us focus on fixing the important ones.
