Xubuntu changes the distribution tracking system

Xubuntu 16.10

One of the most important parts when developing a distribution or a software is the feedback that is received from the users. The new web applications have allowed that feedback to be regulated and automated being almost automatic in Gnu / Linux distributions.

Ubuntu and its derivatives have tracking systems that mean that users do not have to do almost anything when it comes to reporting problems or bugs, but this tracking system seems that it will not be the same in all distributions. Xubuntu recently announced that it has changed its tracking system to improve the information received and help distribution partners and developers.

From now on the system will change and will stop using the Ubuntu tax. Thus, this new system is more complete than the one used by Ubuntu, at least most useful for Xubuntu contributors.

Xubuntu will change Ubuntu's tracking system for its own

One of the peculiarities of this system is that it will show the changes and news in a general way, so that the most inexperienced users will be able to get a quick idea of ​​the problems and how the solutions are progressing. As well there is a topic search engine to see anything quickly and there will be a graph of burned milestones that will show the progress and acceptance of the news by users.

This new tracking and development system it does not mean that we will be spied on or watched by the Xubuntu developers Instead, we have a new tool so that distribution problems improve notably, but if we don't want to use it, just deactivate it in System Control. Furthermore, this information is available through the development website, where you can view data anonymously, without jeopardizing our system.

Personally these tools are important and interesting because they make the distribution advance and in the case of Xubuntu it is necessary, although the help of all users of the official flavor is also necessary. In any case it seems that the distribution will improve remarkably or at least it seems that way. Do not you think?
