The Symfony 500 + 100 Challenge
The end of the year is approaching, and we think that this is the best time to do some backlog cleaning before fresh starting the new year. Right now there are 728 pending issues in symfony/symfony repository and 177 issues in symfony/symfony-docs.
Some of those issues were reported a long time ago and they probably refer to Symfony versions that are no longer maintained. Others would have been fixed but not closed and there could also be some duplicates.
That's why we ask your help to review all the pending issues in order to close irrelevant issues and achieve much more manageable levels: 500 issues or less for symfony/symfony and 100 issues or less for symfony/symfony-docs.
How to proceed in the "Symfony 500 + 100 Challenge"?
- Browse the oldest issue page in the repository (as the moment of writing this article, that's the 30th page for symfony/symfony and the 8th page for symfony/symfony-docs).
- Add a new comment to let others know that you are reviewing that issue. For instance: "I'll take care of this issue".
- If the issue reports an bug, try to reproduce it in Symfony 2.3 and add a new comment with your findings: this is still an issue or it has already been fixed.
- If the issue asks for a new feature, check if it already exists in latest Symfony versions.
- If the issue is still discussing things, try to reach the original author to finish the discussion or add a new comment telling us that the Symfony Core must make a decision about it.
