8.2 The Bug Squad
To help keep track and organize all issues are a group of tireless
volunteers collectively known as the Bug Squad. Composed mainly
of non-programmers, the Bug Squad’s responsibilities include:
Monitoring the LilyPond Bugs mailing list looking for any issues
reported by other users ensuring that they are accurate and contain
enough information for the developers to work with, preferably with
Tiny examples and if applicable, screenshots.
Adding new issues to the issue tracker or updating existing
issues with new information.
Verifying issues in the issue tracker that have been marked
as ‘fixed’; making sure either that the fix works or (in the case of
Documentation for example) has at least been commited to the code base.
The Bug Meister also helps check the current
Regression tests and highlights any significant changes (or
problems) since the previous LilyPond release.
