It was amazing read the report about enhancement and fixes enlisted.
Me, who checked also development entries meanwhile and tickets as well, was also interesting to read about long awaiting tickets closed from good old days.
I also checks tickets by Roadmap to see how those are progressed related to percentage of whole numbers per releases, by staus as blocking and critical and ages since those were opened. Is it assigned or not, read the notes in them.
Well you should also read them to understand difficulties of fixing, as some problems reported as fixed and some of them was reopened as new nightlies caused again the same error. Sometimes the new problem not reproducible and that cause the error cannot be fixed as the developers cannot trigger/simulate in their environment.
Also very problematic a rare hardware or config to be supported - whether how many ticket can be under R1 roadmap that is old and reporter do not use that one since it was reported ?..
Of course I understand it was right to those remaining and should discover what could happen to cause that error and this way not simply closed as such HW/SW can be used by another person and as well can reveal some still existing hidden error that just comes out in case of specific circumstances which are might be turns out quite often nowadays.
However how much can be the reduced number of really alive problems and enhancement request among them ?
Just me myself experienced strange built-in restrictions of USB SD card readers and SD/micro SD cards (as thumb drives) when I tried to boot a Fujitsu Siemens laptop recently – replaced my P4 DELL that booted fine but started to failing and now crashes even during BIOS config – that way I cannot use it anymore.
This way I do not open ticket about Fu-Si laptop boot failure as I cannot exclude that image or SD card availability problems during boot.
Unfortunately it does matter which program used and how was written the image onto drives as I had learn t- so maybe I caused my unsuccessfulness.
Anyway I spent my hours well - reading tickets, and development remarks where there were available in committed changes.
Thanks for your efforts !
