Contest Rules:

1.      The contest runs from September 1 to October 7, 2013 (Note that the end date has been extended by 1 week beyond September). Bugzilla timestamps will be used to determine whether a bug was reported in this timeframe.

2.      The contest is open to everyone in the eclipse community, but you must have a valid bugzilla login to participate.

3.      Bugs must be reported to the BPMN2 Modeler project bugzilla at

4.      Duplicate bugs will not be counted. The judges will decide whether a bug is a duplicate of one previously reported, so search the bugzilla log before you report a new bug.

5.      Points are awarded according to the bug severity as follows:

·         trivial = 1 point

·         minor = 2 points

·         normal = 3 points

·         major = 4 points

·         critical = 5 points

·         blocker = 6 points

6.      Judges will determine the severity of a bug. Enhancement requests are not counted, but are still appreciated MC900433817[1]

7.      Bug reports that include a patch which does not cause a regression will count double! No penalties are incurred if the patch is found to cause a regression, but it will only be counted according to its severity as if the patch were not included.

8.      Bugs will be fixed by the project development team at their discretion and nightly builds will be made available for Juno and Kepler platforms. The Git commit log will contain the bug numbers that were addressed by the nightly build and the participant that reported the bug is responsible for installing the update, verifying that the issue has been resolved, and closing the bug report. One point will be deducted from the participant's final score for each bug that was not tested and verified.

9.      If a bug is fixed in the current nightly build and a report is filed against a previous build, it will be flagged as "Not a bug" and no points will be awarded for the report.

10.  In case of a tie, the bugzilla timestamp will be used to determine a winner: the earliest bug report wins the tie.

11.  Points will be tallied at the end of the contest and a winner will be announced on this website on Friday October 14, 2013.

12.  The winner will be contacted by email and at that time must provide a valid mailing address - the prize will be shipped directly from to your address.

13.  For legal reasons, only participants residing in the following countries are eligible to receive the prize: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada (excluding Quebec), France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the United States.
