What we do
Mozilla's bugmaster develops policies and processes for managing bugs, their goal is to "leave no bug behind," and help Mozillians make crisp and actionable decisions on bugs, and enable them to follow-through on their decisions.
If you're triaging bugs in a component, Triage for Component Leads is the process we follow.
History is viewable as a Re:dash dashboard
Automated cleanup of bugs is handled by the
bug-husbandry-bot, under which regular and ad-hoc queries run.
Current Regular Queries
Intermittent Test Failure Cleanup
Closes bugs filed from Orange Factor for intermittent test failures. Intermittent test failure bugs which have had no new failures in 21 days (as measured by comment count) and have not been reopened in the past week are closed.
