RedSingularity's (Tim's) Application,

1)  Do you promise to be polite to bug reporters even if they are
rude to you or Ubuntu?  Have you signed the Ubuntu Code of Conduct?


2)  Have you read Bugs/HowToTriage
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage>, Bugs/Assignment
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Assignment>, Bugs/Status
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status>  and Bugs/Importance
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Importance>?  Do you have any
questions about that documentation?


3)  What sensitive data should you look for in a private Apport
crash report bug before making it public?

-Sensitive data to look for in a apport crash would be found in
stacktrace.txt files.  Things such as passwords, bank account
numbers, CSS keys, user names, server names, etc may be located in
And, please do not forget, coredumps, configuration files, etc.

4)  Is there a particular package or group of packages that you are
interested in helping out with?

-I work on any package I feel comfortable with.  Most of my time
goes to the update-manager package though.  I have been working with
that for many months.

5)  Please list five or more bugs which you have triaged and include
an explanation of your Triage. Please note that these bugs should be
representative of your very best work and they should demonstrate
your understanding of the triage process and how to properly handle
Importance for each one has been discussed with -control
members before being assigned.
Unfortunately, any other bug-control member not involved in these
discussions will have no idea of *how* you reached the conclusion.
Please resend with your rationale for the importances.

<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/704667>   Bug1
Importance: "Medium", This bug affected all FRESH natty installs and it was a core-app. The workaround was simple enough though therefore not "High"
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/664265>   Bug2
Importance: "Low", It only effected people with the mentioned intel VGA chipset WITH compiz enabled as the window manager. Workaround was as simple as using the default manager Metacity.
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/thunderbird/+bug/699922>   Bug3
Importance: "Low", It only effected the group of people using a dual monitor set up. The issue did not effect the usage of thunderbird in any way. It was more of a "cosmetic" issue.
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/715517>    Bug4
Importance: "Low", The problem with the restart button was a nuisance but nothing more. Did not effect the proper working of the update-manager. And in order to reproduce you need to start update-manager as root which is not done normally anyway.
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/638744>   Bug5
Importance: "Wishlist", obviously this was a usability improvement idea for update-manager so it got the wishlist stamp.
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/693131>   Bug6
Importance: "Wishlist", another usability improvement idea that was EASY to implement. Bitesize. (I looked at the source code of update-manager for this one to be sure)
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+bug/696755>   Bug7
Importance: "Wishlist", And finally another idea to improve the users experience with ubuntu. Implimintation requires, again, a few lines of code.
