KDE News presents
on the successful conclusion of the ALERT Project
. The project aimed to
help open source developers to work more effectively and to produce better
software by improving bug tracking, resolution and software quality tools. "KDE's involvement in the early stages was mostly in the form of contributing to documents describing the problems that should be solved. For example, Bugzilla is a popular tool to track bugs, but for large projects such as KDE there are problems with duplicate reports and with reports being filed to the wrong team (it is not always easy for a user to understand that an apparent problem with a web browser failing to show pages is actually due to a separate software handling wireless connections). With this in mind, the KDE experts decided to focus on Solid (the KDE software components dealing with hardware interaction) as a base for KDE's testing of the ALERT software.
