Subject: Someone to oversee Org bugs as reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs?
Date: Fri, 11 Dec 2020 06:17:38 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Dear all,

as the subject says: it would be nice to have someone overseeing Org
bugs that are reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs.

These bugs end up in the Emacs debbugs tracking tool:

They are also sent to the bug-gnu-emacs mailing list:

Volunteering for overseeing these bugs does not mean you have to
subscribe to this list or to fix all Org bugs there :)

First of all, most users use M-x org-submit-bug-report for Org bugs,
which is the preferred way of submitting Org bugs.

Secondly, most bugs reported with M-x report-emacs-bugs are bugs
against old versions of Org, already fixed upstream.

So the idea is just to be able to answer one of these:

- "Thanks but I cannot reproduce the bug with the latest Org."

- "Thanks, I confirm this is a bug, can you forward it to the Org
  mailing list at"

... and to make sure that you _close_ the bug report when necessary.

It is a very nice way to get _some_ work done for Org/Emacs while 
also being part of the Emacs maintainance larger team.

Who's in?
