March: Suggestions Hackathon

The two-year anniversary of open beta launch is coming up at the end of April, and therefore it is time to start thinking about how we will celebrate!

One of the things I want to do is see how many "gifts to our users" we can provide before then, and what better way to do that than to take a look at some of the suggestions they've made. Right now we have 300 unassigned suggestions (thanks in part to a suggestions run this week!) and 332 open suggestions total, and I'd love to knock those numbers down to the 225-250 range.

So, it is time for the March Suggestions Hackathon. Grab an unassigned suggestion! Hack away!

In fact, from now until March 31, I will be putting a bounty on all suggestions bugs. :) For every patch submitted to a bug tagged 'from-suggestions' that is also tagged effort-minor, I'll give you 10 points; for effort-medium, 50 points, and for effort-major, 100 points. First draft of patches must be submitted from now to 31 March but may be revised/reviewed/committed aftewards.

(And, in celebration, I'm claiming a few myself. Despite not having coded anything in like five months. COVER ME, I'M GOING IN.)

Nah, can't be, that was only a few weeks ago, wasn't it?

Gods my memory is blurring things together more.

Oh, I'm in! And I seem to have 4 assigned to me at the moment anyway (2 effort-medium, 2 effort-minor)

I plan to get some more out until the end of the month, but submitted so far:

Bug 1668 - Inbox should not open links in new windows

Bug 3469 - Don't show backdated entries on Latest Things

Bug 3487 - improve the workflow while using the poll creator

Bug 3475 - More scale options allowed in polls

Bug 2600 - Mark your answer in answered polls

All effort-minor, the one effort-medium I have with a patch is not something that's ready for commit yet.

Oh, good. This means I don't have to start out by picking up some of those bugs that I've not touched in six months...

Oh hey, this covers some of the bugs I was about to work on anyway. Bonus!
