Earlier this week we took a look at the statistics from the Fedora Wiki. This post will cover all the stats from the work done to test updated packages to ensure they were ready for prime time in the stable repositories. Similar to the last post, we’ll be looking at the stats from all three milestones (Alpha, Beta and Final). Now that you’ve had some background, let’s get to the statistics!
These numbers are a slightly truncated list of users who provided feedback in Bodhi. Users leave karma on the update and once it gets enough karma from testers, it can go into the stable repositories. These numbers reflect the amount of karma each user left.
|Carlos Morel-Riquelme (n0oir)||78|
|Parag Nemade (pnemade)||57|
|Haïkel Guémar (hguemar)||37|
|Piotr Drąg (raven)||26|

|…and also 76 other reporters who created less than 3 reports each, but 85 reports combined!|
Carlos, Parag and Haïkel rocked the testing with a combined total of 172. That’s 31% of all comments during alpha, great work! 550 comments and 108 testers might seem like a lot – but check out the stats for Beta.
Beta is when Taskotron took over for AutoQA – which is able to run tasks on each package and leave comments on any issues it finds. A big thanks to the Fedora QA devel team for working so hard on this and getting it in place! When you take out the results from taskotron, we had an increase of 90 people leaving karma and 865 more comments left compared to Alpha.
Chris Sandler tested 222 packages, edging out Carlos by a mere 42. Parag dropped down to 4th and Hans Müller came out of nowhere in 3rd with 151. Great work!
Even through to final, Carlos continued to rule Bodhi stats with 93 comments. Hans and Chris were neck and neck with 83 and 82 respectively. It’s awesome to see so many people testing packages, helping get packages out to the rest of the Fedora community! Thanks to everyone who helped throughout F21!
Next time, we’ll look through the statistics for Bugzilla. Stay tuned!
1 – If a person provides multiple comments to a single update, it is considered as a single comment. Karma value is not taken into account.
Thank you to all the Heroes of F21 for helping to make the release version as stable and usable as it is.
I’ve just read that Dave Jones is moving on from Red Hat to pastures new on his blog page. So I’d also like to thank Dave for his valuable contributions over the past 11 and a half years. Maybe he will get mentioned in the next 5TFTW or honoured with an article of his own. Anyhow all the best for the future Dave.
