Webinar description:

As an application fueled by the enthusiasm and energy of an incredibly proactive community, ArchivesSpace development continues to grow and evolve, sometimes faster than it can keep up. And though each release is carefully examined and tested by our Testing subteam, bugs still manage to sneak their way into the code.

So, who ya gonna call? In this webinar, Jason Loeffler, Lydia Tang, Patrick Galligan, and Laney McGlohon will present an overview of an ArchivesSpace bug’s life cycle by examining the community’s approach to identifying, reporting, prioritizing, and fixing bugs. Jason will begin by describing what bugs are, Lydia will provide a demo on how anyone can submit a JIRA ticket, Patrick will share on the Development Prioritization subteam’s role, and Laney will finish by describing how the fix is designated into the code.

Please feel free to bring any questions you have.
