[Test-Announce] 2012-09 Graphics Test Week recap

Here's the recap of the Fedora 18 Graphics Test Week. Note that there
are no Fedora 17 Graphics Test Week numbers here because there wasn't
one! The last one was Fedora 16. So the 'outcome' numbers have the
results from the F16 test week added.

As expected, we got more tests and more bugs filed this time than we did
in F16; the F16 numbers were low because I didn't get the publicity and
organization done properly. We got it done better this time, with many
thanks to Martin Holec for covering some stuff I missed (and also for
running a ton of tests himself, which pumps the numbers up too :>)

Here's the numbers on tests conducted and bugs filed, with all the
historical numbers for comparison. I counted each non-example line in
the main results matrix as a 'test conducted'. I didn't count the runs
in the 'bonus' 3D matrix, in order to provide a more fair comparison
with previous releases. In future, once we have enough releases with the
bonus 3D tests included, I may start using those numbers. This might
affect the bugs-to-tests ratio somewhat.

f11 nouveau: 104 tests, 42 bugs - ratio 0.40
f12 nouveau: 53 tests, 34 bugs - ratio 0.64
f13 nouveau: 78 tests, 26 bugs - ratio 0.33
f14 nouveau: 39 tests, 8 bugs - ratio 0.21
f15 nouveau: 83 tests, 55 bugs - ratio 0.66
f16 nouveau: 16 tests, 8 bugs - ratio 0.50
f18 nouveau: 54 tests, 43 bugs - ratio 0.80

f11 radeon: 55 tests, 46 bugs - ratio 0.84
f12 radeon: 61 tests, 81 bugs - ratio 1.33
f13 radeon: 48 tests, 33 bugs - ratio 0.69
f14 radeon: 32 tests, 18 bugs - ratio 0.56
f15 radeon: 66 tests, 38 bugs - ratio 0.58
f16 radeon: 12 tests, 8 bugs - ratio 0.67
f18 radeon: 32 tests, 24 bugs - ratio 0.75

f11 intel: 23 tests, 21 bugs - ratio 0.91
f12 intel: 29 tests, 31 bugs - ratio 1.07
f13 intel: 38 tests, 38 bugs - ratio 1.00
f14 intel: 33 tests, 28 bugs - ratio 0.84
f15 intel: 37 tests, 25 bugs - ratio 0.68
f16 intel: 10 tests, 7 bugs - ratio 0.70
f18 intel: 27 tests, 7 bugs - ratio 0.26

Interesting that Intel is doing really well this cycle. The hardware
tested seems to be a reasonable range, so it's not that we were only
testing one small set of hardware that happens to work well. Radeon is
broadly in line with historical trends. nouveau is at its 'buggiest'
level ever, which is maybe worrying, though it's worth noting that quite
a lot of the bugs filed related to the advanced 3D tests, and two of
them were for a crash in extremetuxracer which is nothing to do with
nouveau. As for participation, we had 113 tests run this time, a huge
improvement on the 38 from F16, about even with F14, but still a bit
below the other releases from F11 to F15, so we can still make things
better for F18.

Here's the chart for how reported bugs are handled, adding the results
from the F16 events (this chart gets updated on a one-cycle delay,
because it's concerned with how the bugs filed are handled after a
reasonable amount of time for the developers to look at them, and as
noted above, there was no F17 event, so we're adding the F16 results
this time). A full explanation of what this tracks and how it's
calculated in the F13 recap at
and the F16 recap at
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/test/2011-November/104677.html .
Also, if you try to reproduce these numbers, note that you'll want to
remove the bugs 123456 and 234567 from the lists - they're used in the
'example' entries in the results matrix. The numbers for older releases
are copied/pasted, not re-generated each time. F16 may gain a slight
advantage here from having had a year for its bugs to be fixed, not six

f11 nouveau: 42 bugs, 4 open, 8 closeddupe, 24 closedfixed, 6 closedunfixed - 70.59%
f12 nouveau: 34 bugs, 11 open, 8 closeddupe, 14 closedfixed, 1 closedunfixed - 53.85%
f13 nouveau: 27 bugs, 17 open, 6 closeddupe, 3 closedfixed, 1 closedunfixed - 14.29%
f14 nouveau: 8 bugs, 5 open, 3 closeddupe - 0% (small sample)
f15 nouveau: 58 bugs, 27 open, 13 closeddupe, 13 closedfixed, 5 closedunfixed - 28.89%
f16 nouveau: 8 bugs, 4 open, 3 closeddupe, 1 closedunfixed - 0% (small sample)

f11 radeon: 46 bugs, 14 open, 10 closeddupe, 19 closedfixed, 3 closedunfixed - 52.78%
f12 radeon: 81 bugs, 19 open, 32 closeddupe, 28 closedfixed, 2 closedunfixed - 57.14%
f13 radeon: 36 bugs, 28 open, 3 closeddupe, 5 closedfixed, 0 closedunfixed - 15.15%
f14 radeon: 18 bugs, 13 open, 0 closeddupe, 3 closedfixed, 2 closedunfixed - 16.67%
f15 radeon: 38 bugs, 17 open, 10 closeddupe, 9 closedfixed, 2 closedunfixed - 32.14%
f16 radeon: 8 bugs, 5 open*, 1 closeddupe, 1 closedfixed, 1 closedunfixed - 14.29%* (small sample)

f11 intel: 21 bugs, 7 open, 1 closeddupe, 12 closedfixed, 1 closedunfixed - 60%
f12 intel: 31 bugs, 7 open, 12 closeddupe, 12 closedfixed, 0 closedunfixed - 63.16%
f13 intel: 42 bugs, 26 open, 4 closeddupe, 11 closedfixed, 1 closedunfixed - 28.95%
f14 intel: 28 bugs, 21 open, 4 closeddupe, 1 closedfixed, 2 closedunfixed - 4.17%
f15 intel: 27 bugs, 8 open, 7 closeddupe, 12 closedfixed, 0 closedunfixed - 60%
f16 intel: 7 bugs, 5 open, 1 closeddupe, 1 closedfixed, 0 closedunfixed - 16.67% (small sample)

The low number of bugs makes these numbers pretty unreliable, really,
but obviously the results aren't great for any of the drivers, the
bottom line is exactly two bugs got fixed so far as a result of the F16
test days, which obviously isn't what we're aiming for. In the end
though it's probably a result of the overall neglect of the event in
that cycle, so we'll have to wait for the F18 numbers - where the bug
count is up again - to draw any conclusions. Re the asterisks on radeon
- one of the 'open' bugs is #698011, which is actually CLOSED UPSTREAM
but counted under 'open' because it's open upstream. It's actually under
active development right now, it looks like a patch that fixes it was
posted at the end of September. So probably, if I'd done this recap a
week later, that bug would be counted as closedfixed not open, and the
radeon numbers would look better.

Many thanks as always to all those who contributed tests and to our
plucky X developers and triagers, especially:

Adam Jackson
Dave Airlie
Jerome Glisse
Ben Skeggs
Matej Cepl
