OpenStreetBugs Phase out: Done

Posted by werner2101 on 2 May 2014 in English (English)

yesterday I've closed the last open bug in Openstreetbugs.

Russia and especially Moscow contained lots of short bug messages. Hard to review/fix and sometimes much to short to guess it's meanings. [1]

The bugs moved to Notes in Moscow may not be that usesful for all mappers. Sorry, but I've tried to sort out all bugs that had only little information.

The open bugs graph of Russia looks like this and finally reached zero:

bugs in russia

While most of the countries finished the transition in February, there wasn't much progress in Russia.

I've started to create some final OSB statistics [2]. We've moved about 9000 bugs to Notes, while we fixed/closed about 34000 bugs. I think that's ok.

I've the feeling that the bugs get fixed in Notes much quicker than in OSB. Need now some new stats about how many moved bugs are still open in Notes.

Regards Werner

That's a fantastic job, Werner. Phasing out an old tool instead of just letting the dust piling up is of course the good thing to do, but very few people have the courage to do so. Many thanks

Fantastic job, Werner. Thank you for taking on this big effort of closing out all these 'forgotten' OSB's.

Well done. Out of the 34000 you closed, how many were done automatically? Could the same automatic cleanup tools now be used for notes?

@Stereo: Most of the bugs have been closed/fixed manually on a one by one-Review. I've only done about on third. Many volunteers helped fixing all the open bugs.

Only bugs that have been added automatically (e.g. 30-Zones in Belgium, I think) have been closed without a further review.

The only thing we could reuse for Notes is the tooling to jump from bug to bug. But I think the TODO-Plugin in JOSM can help here (haven't tried it yet).

@emka: I'd like to thank you very much for developing, maintaining and running the OpenStreetBugs service over the last 6 years. Many of the ideas are now implemented in the Notes feature. Thank You.

I work permanently at closing the Notes bugs in Moscow. Unfortunately, almost no help from other ru-editors.
