  1. [9fans] central list of bugs

    Hello,

    is there any central place, where there is a list of known
    bugs/potential bugs that sould be corrected/thought about?

    During my short play with plan9 I encountered several bugs/bug-like
    cases. They were marginally discussed in this forum, too, amongs those
    are:

    -- an obvious bug with selecting an already closed hiden window in a rio menu
    -- questionable behaviour of acme/sam not scrolling in the case 'Edit
    /old/c/new/'

    Maybe some others.
    For me it'd be interesting to see such a list.

    Ruda

    There is an errata page on the wiki, however
    I doubt there is anyone looking at this and fixing
    the bugs.

    The bottom line is if you discover a bug, and it anoys you,
    fix it (you have the source). If you are feeling friendly
    submit a patch.

    Sorry if this seems harsh, but there is no support team behind
    Plan9. I am sure we would all be delighted if somone was willing
    to spend their time doing arbitary plan9 bug fixes, but I don't
    know of such a person.

    A bug tracker would be fine.
    If the community's interested, I could setup some issue tracker
    (bugzilla ? trac ?)

    The 'community' (whatever that is) is not interested.

    How can this man talk for others?!

    I have a strong believe that without some central bug-tracking (so
    that anybody can know about where there is a bug) this project will
    only stay where it is.

    it's a tradition.
    Or he might be making an attempt at a (bad) joke, pretending to be the only
    member of the community. Or he was just grumpy. having not had his
    morning coffee. Go figure.

    unfortunately, I am afraid you might most probably be right.

    My recommendation would be that if you want to do it, then just do it.
    Fire up the issue tracker, and give the link to the tracker here.
    If some people use it, then it's great. If they don't, at least you tried.

    Plan 9 fans are either really reactive and enthusiastic, or really dull and
    annoying. (sorry folks. Though I rarely interact on this list, I used to
    have a great time reading it. But the past year has seen it be crippled by
    useless and childish bashing, shadowing half of the interesting threads.
    my hats off to the people who are helpful around here, and not only by
    means of their technical expertise).
    Just don't let the latter take your motivation away, and don't hold your
    breath when you expect a reaction.

    Thanks for suggesting something constructive.

    I think its a great idea. Folks seem to make good use of the
    inferno-os bug tracker. I took the initiative and setup a google code
    project to serve this purpose:

    http://code.google.com/p/plan9-os

    Great. Perhaps you could add separate categories for several
    projects, eg. v9fs, libmixp, etc.

    For some strange reason, I can't create tickets - it always wants
    me to re-login endlessly (even I am already logged-in)

    Ah - well, that's sort of a different topic. v9fs for instance, has
    its own bug-tracking as part of kernel.org. I'm uncertain of whether
    the various server/client implementations maintain their own tracker.
    It does make some sense to have some sort of central repository for
    such bugs as in many cases the symptom of the problem can't be
    isolated to a component (v9fs versus the server for instance) very
    easily. I'm less sure of how to deal with this in an appropriate
    fashion though... Suggestions welcome, I suppose we could include a
    category for such outside tools in plan9-os, but I was thinking it was
    more of a Plan 9 proper bug reporting facility.

    Weird, I didn't have a problem -- I'll verify that permissions are
    setup to let anyone post issues. Anyone wanting access to the project
    just email me and I'll be happy to add you.
