The job of the bug master is to keep the bug tracker up to date and clean so that it can be used more efficiently by the Cytoscape team to track bugs.

We use the Mantis bug tracking software installed at

Maintainance involves the following tasks:

During the testing phase, prior to a new version release, core developers are expected to fix bugs (while user testing is in progress).

Using the bug tracker assumes that all developers are registered and have been assigned "developer" status in Mantis so that they have the permission to edit bugs. Note: See How_to_set_up_a_new_core_developer for instructions about how to set up your bug tracking user account for the first time. Additionally, the bug master could be made and "administrator", which would allow them to add and change user permissions (ask Ethan or Gary if you want this status).
