Not in my point of view.

For me a bug is open until it's fixed (or WONTFIX). By this it is closed. There are 24 unfixed bugs targetted for 0.9, so the dotted red line is at 24 and counts from the x-axis. There are 19 fixed ones for 0.9, so the blue line is at 19, counting from the x-axis. Is it that hard to understand?
To get the total number of targetted bugs, you have to sum red and blue - red isn't placed on top of blue, so when they meet this doesn't mean that all bugs are fixed. Red simply has to drop to zero.
Man I thought finally with the arrows it would become clearer .. :P

Ok, not so bad... but the 1.0-targeted list stays right at 14 during that time. Shouldn't most of those 0.9-targeted bugs (which seem to have been pushed out) have become 1.0-targeted bugs?


If you are concerned you should take a look at the actual bugs. It may be that a fix to one bug made some other bugs irrelevant, or it may be that some bugs have been resolved in a way other than 'FIXED'. Also, as time goes by there is more pressure to remove blocking from bugs which are actually 'enhancements'. You should take up bug-watching - it's fun :)
Nah, I'm just curious... curious and lazy.

What about bugs that become marked as duplicates, invalid, etc.? Do they just disappear from the dotted-red?

What about perhaps instead having the total number of targeted bugs (open or closed), and the total number of closed targeted bugs? Not sure how easy/hard/desirable that would be, but it would give a better idea of the overall bug workload and percent complete status (and would look even more like the crap I see each week at work).

I am still curious what happens to bugs when the blocking status is unchecked, but they have nowhere else to go. Do these bugs just hang out in the ether until someone rescusitates it?

There should be a future version to change the blocking status to.

Anyone else agree?

Well, bugs don't have to be marked as blockers in order to get fixed...

Oh aye. :oops: For some reason I was interpreting "open" as "ever opened".

They won't, since bugs that have a target have been looked at by the devs before which means they aren't dupes or invalids ;)

*sigh,

well ok, the green line counts the RESOLVED bugs, so this includes both fixes and dupes.

Is it possible to plot small daily marks on date axis for easier orientation?
Or maybe date of last update.

Thanks for the graph Senseman, I really appreciate you taking the time to produce it, and keep it up-to-date.

Should this thread be made sticky?

It's starting to move down towards the bottom of the page, hard to find and all
