Bugzilla – Bug 4153
Consider moving issues to github
Last modified: 2018-10-25 16:29:38 CEST
As you are using github (https://github.com/NLnetLabs/unbound), did you consider to migrate the bugs from bugzilla to github?
Lots of people already have a github account which would make it easier to file a bug report. IMHO there would be more participation (i.e. reactions, comments, suggestions, feature request).
This is just a suggestion - feel free to close it.
I would second that :)
It would make pull requests easier, easy integration with travis (or any other CI) would help in getting PR to go through automatic unit testing/build.
I actually have a travis config on this branch: https://github.com/chantra/unbound/commits/travis_build
This was heavily skewed toward validating dnscrypt support overtime. Currently broken because I need to update the proxy to dnscrypt-proxy v2.
Most likely, some of the mailing list support will start moving to GH issues, this may or may not put more eyes on the problem, and I think it will be hard to actually know if this is going to increase collaboration or not.
Bind is moving to GitLab: https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/bind9 , they may be able to comment on whether or not this is helping them on a day to day development/contribution.issue tracking.
The type of issue tracking system is a fairly broad question, and I don't think we want to move to that one (some people disprefer it), and I don't think we want to close the current one. So I don't have any answers now, but it is interesting to hear the opinion (you are the ones asking for that issue tracking system, in favor I mean, so far). I, however, appreciate, making it easier for people to participate and get assistance, but I don't really have an answer.
Best regards, Wouter
