Don’t file bugreports against KDevelop4

December 9, 2007 at 1:57 pm | Posted in KDevelop | 2 Comments

Due to the recent amount of bugreports that are filed against KDevelop4, I’m inclined to write this.

When you find a build error in KDevPlatform or KDevelop and you can’t fix it yourself, write to the kdevelop-devel mailinglist. Subscription is here: http://www.kdevelop.org/index.html?filename=mailinglist.html
If you find crashes, other bugs or have feature wishes: Write to the -devel adress as well. KDevelop4 is not open for general testing, its currently in a kind of alpha state. So anybody trying to compile or run it should be able to either fix problems he encounters himself or talk to the developers on the mailinglist or on IRC (in #kdevelop).

Until further notice all bugreports against KDevelop4 will be closed as Invalid.

  1. Uh, do you really think this is a good idea? What’s the advantage of a mailing list post over a bug report? You lose the tracking and gain exactly what?

  2. Yes it is, it hopefully saves us from a lot more invalid bugreports in the next months. The things that got filed against kdevelop4 until now are about temporary or known bugs.

    The same thing worked quite ok for the rest of KDE4, where it opened up for bugreports only once it was in a beta state.

    I guess most of the problem is that people are not aware that KDevelop4 and the KDevPlatform module are still not beta and are not part of the 4.0 release.

    Independent of the state, bugreports about build-failures are always wrong on bugs.kde.org.
