Well, the bug sprint is over. [ But that doesn't mean you have to stop fixing bugs if you don't want to! ]

There were 25 changes to the trac database yesterday - not counting all the spam.
[ I'd like to say "25 tickets were changed", but some tickets were changed more than once. ]

In this sprint, we looked at (and modified) a couple hundred tickets, resulting in a net drop of 16 tickets from the start of the Bug Sprint.

General information about the bug sprint is here:
General information about how the Trac system works is here:

Overall bug count:
November 26: 946
November 27: 939
November 28: 930
November 29: 934 (whoops, that's the wrong direction!)
November 30: 931 (better, but the delta is too small)
December 1: 929
December 2: 930
December 3: 933 (ouch!)
December 4: 931
December 5: 934 (ouch, again!)
December 5: 930

Activities on the trac system yesterday:

        New tickets 4
        Tickets closed 5
        Tickets reopened 1
        Tickets changed 15
[ Some other changes happened after midnight; hence the difference between the deltas and the total # of tickets ]

So - what did people think went well during the bug sprint?
What went poorly?
What can we do better next time (assuming that there is a next time)?
