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:
- Confirm that the bug can be reproduced
- If it can't be reproduced, try to figure out what information would make it possible to be reproduced
- 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
- 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!
