2/15 Opscode Ticket Triage


Laurent found a regression in the Ohai 0.6.12 release candidate today.
Thanks for testing! There’s a minor issue that is preventing network
interface counters from being collected in OHAI-325 that we will have
to resolve, so expect Ohai 0.6.12 next week now.

I did some quick JIRA math today and found that against the Chef
project over the last two years we’re averaging 80 new tickets opened
and 58 resolved. Any earth-shattering ideas on how to reverse this
trend would be welcome. I’ve been thinking for a while about setting
up a JIRA workflow that have options for marking tickets confirmed or
incomplete in regard to reproducibility. Also we just need to put some
cycles into checking old tickets to see if they’re still an issue, but
that won’t really help these numbers.
