Subject [Db-derby Wiki] Update of "RegressionSearchAndDestroy" by KatheyMarsden
Date Thu, 20 Jul 2006 04:48:51 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Db-derby Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by KatheyMarsden:
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/RegressionSearchAndDestroy

New page:
The Derby 10.2 Regression Search and Destroy Contest is a contest to help ensure a smooth
transition for users who are migrating to 10.2 and help achieve Derby's ForwardCompatiblity
goal: to to allow any application written against the public interfaces of an older version
of Derby to run, without any changes, against a newer version of Derby.

Contest entries can be anything to help ease transition of existing applications to 10.2.
 Winners will be: 

 "The top three developers or users who have  made the greatest contribution toward a seamless
upgrade to 10.2."


== The Rules ==

1. Valid contest entries are any action that exposes or resolves existing regressions, improves
 Derby compatibility with previous releases, or improves our documentation of known differences
in 10.2.  Below are a few examples:
 * Test an existing application with Derby 10.2 and record your results on the TenTwoApplicationTesting
page.
 * Find a  new  product regression from a previous Derby release and log it in Jira. 
 * Correct the derby info for existing issues to mark them as "Regression"  if they are a
regression from 10.1 or "Existing Application Impact" and "Release Note Needed"  if they were
intentional changes that might affect existing applications.
 * Fix a product regression.

2. Bugs filed against or fixed for new functionality does not count for the contest but are
of course welcome.

3.  Three winners are chosen by impartial judge(s) based on entries completed by September
15,2006. Stan Bradbury has volunteered as one judge but we need another.

4. The winners get organic chocolate  and  of course glory and huge amounts of merit.  (Contribution
of other prizes is welcome, but wouldn't want to make the stakes so high the lawyers need
get involved).

== How to Enter ==

You are automatically entered in the contest if you add your application testing results to
TenTwoApplicationTesting, file a Jira regression, or fix a regression bug.  Other types of
entries should be listed below.
