Fixing Perl5 Core Bugs: Report for Month 14

Dave Mitchell writes:

As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the April period.

Again, I concentrated on bugs that were 5.14 blockers, and also spent a fair amount of time working to reduce smoke failures, which isn't being charged to the grant, as that work wasn't done against RT tickets.

Over the last month I have averaged 8 hours per week.

As of 2011/04/30: since the beginning of the grant:

59.9 weeks
695.8 total hours
11.6 average hours per week

There are 204 hours left on the grant.

Report for period 2011/04/01 to 2011/04/30 inclusive


Effort (HH::MM):

15:00 diagnosing bugs
19:10 fixing bugs
0:00 reviewing other people's bug fixes
0:00 reviewing ticket histories
0:00 review the ticket queue (triage)
34:10 Total

Numbers of tickets closed:

3 tickets closed that have been worked on
1 tickets closed related to bugs that have been fixed
0 tickets closed that were reviewed but not worked on (triage)
