Congratulations to RailsBridge bug mashers

Congratulations to Josh, Marshall, and Jordan who each won one of the RimuHosting-supplied prizes at the recent RailsBridge BugMash.

The BugMash was to identify, narrow down, reproduce, provide test cases and patch Rails bugs.  From their site:

Here's how it will work: the BugMash will run over the weekend of August 8-9. The Rails team will identify open issues that need some help and tag them in Lighthouse. Participants will draw from this pool with four goals:

  1. Confirm that the bug can be reproduced
  2. If it can't be reproduced, try to figure out what information would make it possible to be reproduced
  3. If it can be reproduced, add the missing pieces: better repro instructions, a failing patch, and/or a patch that applies cleanly to the current Rails source
  4. Bring promising tickets to the attention of the Core team

The end result is a ton of fiddly little bugs fixed.  Making a better Rails.  Which so many of our customers use.  Thanks RailsBridge!
