Getting patch contribution back into shape.
Jono’s blogged about what we’re doing to keep the sponsorship queue healthy.
It can be a real bummer when contributions are ignored so I am glad we’re taking a more proactive stance on the problem and setting aside time for people to do it. You can find out more about the Sponsorship Process here.
Another important element to accepting gifts is Operation Cleansweep. Here’s the stats for the week:
Total bugs with patches: 2395 (+10) Reviewed patches: 428 (+1) --- Bugs with 'patch-needswork': 99 (-1) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-upstream': 192 (+5) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-debian': 63 (+1) Bugs with 'indicator-application': 38 (0) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-upstream': 60 (-1) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-debian': 10 (0) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-upstream': 19 (0) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-debian': 3 (0) --- Last updated: Sun, 21 Nov 2010 08:05:42 +0100
Plenty of work for many more people! If you want to dive in hit the Getting Involved page — Cleansweep is a good place to get started, you just need to know how to review code, you don’t have to worry about learning all the Ubuntu Developer-specific workflow to contribute!

Total bugs with patches: 2243 (-27)

Operation Cleansweep making progress… (updated)
As you may know, a crack team of volunteers from around the internet have been making a concerted effort to go through patches found on Launchpad, clean them up, and integrate them. We call this Operation Cleansweep.
As of this writing Ubuntu contributors working on Cleansweep have sent around
225 patches (FIX: that’s 225 bugs, 135 of which contained patches that were forwarded, 77 need work see below) to Debian and/or upstream. Their status is a mixed bag. Some are pending acceptance and/or review, some got accepted, and surely some will be rejected.
Want to know how you can help keep this going and drive on with the mission? Here’s how to get started. And remember, we stilll have a ways to go!
EDIT: Daniel has passed along these numbers:
Total bugs with patches: 2275 (0) Reviewed patches: 290 (+15) --- Bugs with 'patch-needswork': 77 (+4) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-upstream': 108 (+4) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-debian': 27 (+3) Bugs with 'indicator-application': 44 (0) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-upstream': 50 (+2) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-debian': 12 (0) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-upstream': 12 (+1) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-debian': 0 (0) --- Last updated: Sun, 13 Jun 2010 08:05:28 +0200
Progress on patches …
Bobbo has posted an update on the progress of getting the number of unreviewed patches under control.
If you want to help David and Nigel keep plugging at this then please consider joining the Ubuntu Review team, there will be a session on Thursday on IRC if you want to get started:
Pretty good progress so far!
