Bug Verification

As a non-programmer/non-developer, how does one go about verifying bugs? Is is simply a matter of reproducing the problem? -- AuntiMame

Setup a test environment (install the latest joyride on your XO is probably the best way to do it at the moment), try to reproduce the problem following the steps provided by the bug reporter, add a comment on the ticket about your results. If the bug used to be easily reproducible (which usually you can guess from the ticket text or ask to the reporter) and you cannot reproduce it anymore then close the bug as fixed. -- Marcopg
