Number of open actionable bugs per year since they were opened

What does this chart mean?

This chart shows the number of bugs that have been open for the given number of years.
By pressing the 'Start animation' button, you will see how the number of bugs in each segment has changed over time.
This chart uses actionable bugs, so any bugs postponed for any reason are not taken into account.

Number of years all actionable bugs have been open

What does this chart mean?

This chart shows our bugdebt in total years.
Bugdebt is calculated by adding up the total number of years all open bugs have been open for.
This can be compared against the expected bugdebt had we done nothing and if no new bugs were opened.
The expected bugdebt is calculated based on the previous data point.
This chart uses actionable bugs, so any bugs postponed for any reason are not taken into account.

Community Bug Smash Index

What does this chart mean?

A Community Bug Smash Index of 0 means that no bugs were closed and no new bug were added over a period.
A positive Community Bug Smash Index means the debt went up less than expected.
A negative Community Bug Smash Index means the debt went up more than expected.

The Community Bug Smash Index shows the impact the community had on the bugdebt.
Bugdebt is calculated by adding up the total number of years all open bugs have been open for.
This is then set out against the expected bugdebt had we done nothing and if no new bugs were opened.
The resulting difference between actual bugdebt and expected bugdebt is then divided by the number of days that it took us to achieve that difference,
and that gives us our Community Bug Smash Index.
