Debathena

Debathena uses  Trac for bug tracking, the developer wiki, and other project coordination. This Trac instance is also used for several projects related to Debathena, including:

Logging In: In order to edit wiki pages or open bug reports, you need to Log in to Trac using your  MIT Certificate. If you already have a certificate in your browser, click the Login link at the top right of the page to log in.

Bug Reports

Trac organizes bug reports into Tickets, and we have further grouped them into Milestones. Typically, a Milestone is created for each Ubuntu or Debian release.

Opening a New Bug

To open a new bug, log in to Trac, and then click the "New Ticket" link in the top navigation bar. If the "New Ticket" link is not available, it means you're not logged in.

Joining The Project

Any member of the MIT Community is welcome to join the project. We periodically hold "cluedumps" or crash courses in Debathena development throughout the semester. Our next scheduled one is:

  • Date: TBD (IAP 2014)
  • Location: TBD
  • Time: TBD

We also periodically hold "hackathons", where large groups of people get together to work on Debathena. These are ideal events for novice developers to attend, as there will often be a mentor who you can partner with to work on projects.

We have identified some tickets that are ideal for hackathon work.
