Bug Pass Friday

Hello Committers,

I'd like to organize our work for 8u20 this week.  Recall that 8u20 is 
about improving the quality of FX rather than implementing new features.


Bug Owners:

I suggest that we implement "Bug Pass Friday" where component owners and 
reviewers assess their bug backlog, clean up really old bugs that no 
longer apply and target the remaining bugs for either 8u20 or 9.  In the 
case of bugs that don't have steps or sample code (and otherwise can't 
be reproduced), we should close them as 'Incomplete and ask nicely for 
more information:


Otherwise, please check the priority and adjust accordingly.  Of course, 
crashes, exceptions and failed functionality tend to rate high.

Component Owners:

We have bugs that are unassigned or assigned to the wrong person. 
Component owners are asked to do a pass and ensure that all bugs that 
are assigned are assigned to owners or reviewers.  Of course there will 
be exceptions and when in doubt, email the list or contact us and we 
will update the code ownership tables.


Unassigned bugs can stay that way or be assigned.  It is likely that 
Kevin and I will do a pass on the unassigned bugs at a later time but if 
you know that a bug belongs to a certain person, assign it.

This Tuesday is our first milestone and it will be uneventful because of 
the holidays.  However, starting next week, we should have a good idea 
about the work that lies ahead and how much trouble we are in!

Steve and Kevin
