A great leap to freedom

(Comments)

We had a great Bug Day for the Translate Toolkit.
I wrote little scripts to track bug and test status on different machines, giving these results:
Bug resolution
10:20  NEW 23  ASSIGNED 2  RESOLVED 21  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
10:40  NEW 22  ASSIGNED 2  RESOLVED 22  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
11:00  NEW 21  ASSIGNED 2  RESOLVED 23  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
11:20  NEW 19  ASSIGNED 1  RESOLVED 26  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
12:20  NEW 17  ASSIGNED 1  RESOLVED 28  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
14:20  NEW 17  ASSIGNED 1  RESOLVED 27  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50
14:40  NEW 15  ASSIGNED 1  RESOLVED 29  VERIFIED 3  TOTAL 50

So we basically resolved 14 bugs, nice progress.
Test status
09:20 83 passed, 2 failed
10:00 87 passed, 2 failed
10:20 90 passed, 1 failed
10:40 93 passed
11:00 92 passed, 1 failed
11:20 93 passed
11:40 95 passed
17:20 95 passed
17:32 99 passed, 1 failed

So we added 15 new tests, all except one of which pass (Dwayne added it later), and hopefully we can fix that soon.
A lot of these problems have been hanging around for ages, and having a bug day was a nice way to get everyone together and finish them off. Thanks to all who participated!
The bug day was called Long Walk to Freedom but I concluded we made a Great Leap Forward :-). The main point behind all of this is to release version 0.8 (which we've branched for) as a stable version that everyone's happy with, and then move on with other plans... In the past we've been doing too much normal development work in between "release candidates", with the result that things have been broken, which means this has dribbled on for months. Unit tests are a nice aid to making sure we don't break things.
Once the final test is fixed, I'll do a release candidate, make sure everyone's happy, then release 0.8 (I hope I don't find myself reading this in a few months time without this done!)
The new things we're moving on to are encapsulated in the WordForge project, and I'm quite excited about them. It should make a big difference to open source localisation projects in the future.
