Help revitalize the One Hundred Paper Cuts project by taking a minutes-long survey
While developing Ubuntu, the developers are constantly faced with bugs, bugs featuring diverse complexities, affected areas, necessary skills to be fixed, etc, basically, being perceived as bugs (in the sense of regular), serious, critical, show-stoppers, etc, bundle of bug labels shaped around a coding-based fixing "zone".
One Hundred Paper Cuts is an official Ubuntu project aimed at identifying and fixing simple regular user-oriented bugs labeled as paper cuts, "a paper cut is a trivially fixable usability bug that the average user would encounter in default installation of Ubuntu or Kubuntu Desktop Edition".
A paper cut can easily be identified in relation to issues occurring with one's hardware, ability to be identified by a regular non-coder user, can be easily fixed (by one person in one day), etc.
Right-clicking on Totem's Unity launcher icon, exposes its quicklist, seeing
Movie Playerrr when its default name is
Movie Player is a paper cut, hovering the mouse pointer over a button that is highlighted with a pink color when the default highlight color is orange, is a paper cut.
While the project is focused on fixing minor yet aimed at a more precise desktop bugs, it seems that the bug reporters' interest has decreased across Ubuntu's development cycles, approach mentioned in a new bug report targeted at revitalizing the One Hundred Paper Cuts project.
The of-interest aspect is the near-future (unknown at-the-moment) path to be followed (needed for OHPC's "rebirth"), "in order to decide on a way forward, we must first understand the problem", consequently, the natural approach is "people are not contributing to the project and we have to find out why, and the best way to do this is simply to ask them".
For interested users, a simple survey has been created where questions addressed to both contributors and non-contributors are to be located and answered.
