Of course I was not talking about new contributors. My main goal for this
release is to help new people to come on-board.
We refreshed the wiki, wrote a step-by-step how-to "signoff and write patches",
I give personal answers to new contributors, guide them, give them quick and
early feedbacks on their patches in order to keep them motivated.
It's obvious to me how much work you're putting in Jonathan, and I
appreciate it. Thank you. I'm glad one of your big goals is to recruit new
people since if Koha were a kid, it would be old enough to drive in the USA.
This button I am asking for is to alert support companies and regular
developers that something is (very) urgent and need their attention. I would
like to stop gesticulating to try getting this attention. I would like a button
I can push to make a red blinking light on some desks. Then everybody is free
to ignore it, but they saw it and I will not push it again. It will be easier
for me to know that people knows, than sending emails, pinging on #koha, adding
card to the kanban, CCing people on the bug report, without never knowing if
they are aware of the problem.
About the kanban: its goal is NOT to replace bugzilla, it has never been and
will never be.
We are talking about two different tools. One is a bug tracker, the other one
is a tool to manage/prioritize different tasks, group them under "Epic" (big
works), form working groups, etc. Moreover community tasks are not always one
entry in bugzilla, we want to track, discuss and keep history of more stuffs
than just bugs. Taiga answered this lack. Please re-read the wiki page of the
kanban if its goal is not clear (or ask me to update it).
Thank you for clarifying this. I wasn't sure whether it would eventually
supercede BZ or not.
