    Kayaker Magic has been a reporter for OpenSim for many years and submitted many bug reports. He gave a presentation at OSCC several years ago about the “Sad Sorry State of Weapons Developent in OpenSim” to bring attention to some bugs. Things are much better now! Kayaker is a prolific writer of LSL scripts for OpenSim and you may have seen some his work all over the Metaverse.


Event Details

Open Simulator is an open source project written and maintained by volunteers. But the people writing the code cannot test every facet of this huge project. They depend on “reporters” to try everything out, verify when things are fixed and report new issues. Any of us can be reporters but to be effective there are procedures you should go through. Don’t just whine “X doesn’t work! Fix it!” You should go through several steps to submit a good bug report. It is not easy! I’ll go through the steps with some war stores of experiences I have had reporting for OpenSim. I hope to encourage more people to help improve OpenSim by reporting bugs and I hope to show you how to improve the quality of your bug reports.
