KDE Rallies Bug Hunters

May 16, 2008

Sunday is the 4th KDE Bug Day with the focus on finding errors in Konqueror.

The KDE developers call on users to report errors in specific programs at regular intervals. The 4th Bug Day, which is planned for Sunday, May 18, is dedicated to discovering and validating as many errors in possible in the KDE 4 version of Konqueror. Anybody with a Linux computer and an Internet connection can join in with the fun.

The main aim of bug hunting is to reduce the number of unresolved bugs. Users can check whether their systems are affected by a specific error, and might even discover that reported bugs aren't actually bugs at all. If you are interested, the KDE Techbase page has details of the event.
