Bugzilla Housecleaning Processes

Introduction

As discussed at the June 10, 2009 and June 10, 2009 PMC meetings, we will follow the enclosed Bugzilla housecleaning processes to ensure Bugzilla defects and enhancements reflect the current state of the project.

These actions are intended to communicate a clear statement to the open-source community and our consuming products that TPTP is in maintenance mode and is only focusing on unresolved defects relative to our current resource levels. Our intent here is to solicit feedback via Bugzilla to determine those enhancements/defects of importance to the open-source community and our consuming products. In addition, we hope the open-source community will response with contributions/resources to address some of these enhancements/defects, similar to the outcome of the TPTP 4.5 component reorganization (see 4.5 Component Reorganization).

Bugzilla housecleaning will be completed at the end of each TPTP release.

Enhancements

  • All enhancements will be resolved as WONTIFX with the follow comment:
As of TPTP 4.6.0, TPTP is in maintenance mode and focusing on improving quality by resolving relevant defects and increasing test coverage through test creation, automation, Build Verification Tests (BVTs), and expanded run-time execution.  As such, TPTP is not committing to delivering enhancements.  For this enhancement to be considered, please re-open with an attached patch including the Description Document, code, and test case(s).

Newer Unresolved Defects

  • All unresolved and targeted (--- or Future) defects opened earlier than 2 years before the General Availability (GA) date of the

current TPTP release (for example, opened between June 24, 2007 - June 24, 2009 for TPTP 4.6), the following comment with be added to the Bugzilla and emailed1 to the committer:

As of TPTP 4.6.0, TPTP is in maintenance mode and focusing on improving quality by resolving relevant defects and increasing test coverage through test creation, automation, Build Verification Tests (BVTs), and expanded run-time execution.  Please confirm if this defect is still relevant and reproducible in the latest TPTP release (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/downloads/).

1 If the originator of the defect has an inactive Bugzilla account (for example, inactive email address), the defect is triaged by the Project Lead before and if no longer relevant, resolved as WONTIFX with the follow comment:

As of TPTP 4.6.0, TPTP is in maintenance mode and focusing on improving quality by resolving relevant defects and increasing test coverage through test creation, automation, Build Verification Tests (BVTs), and expanded run-time execution.  Since this originator of this defect has an inactive Bugzilla account, it may be no longer relevant.  If this defect is still relevant and reproducible in the latest TPTP release (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/downloads/), please re-open.

Older Unresolved Defects

  • All unresolved and targeted (--- or Future) defects opened more than 2 years before the General Availability (GA) date of the current TPTP release (for example, opened on or before June 23, 2007 for TPTP 4.6, released on June 24, 2009) will be resolved1 as WONTIFX with the follow comment:
As of TPTP 4.6.0, TPTP is in maintenance mode and focusing on improving quality by resolving relevant defects and increasing test coverage through test creation, automation, Build Verification Tests (BVTs), and expanded run-time execution.  Since this defect is >2 years old, it may be no longer relevant.  If this defect is still relevant and reproducible in the latest TPTP release (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/downloads/), please re-open.

1 All defects must be triaged by the Project Lead before resolving as WONTIFX.

Resolved/Unverified Defects

  • All resolved and unverified defects resolved more than 1 year before the General Availability (GA) date of the current TPTP release (for example, opened on or before June 23, 2008 for TPTP 4.6, released on June 24, 2009) will be verified/closed1 with the follow comment:
Since this defect has been resolved and unverified for >1 year, it is considered to be fixed.  If this defect is still unresolved and reproducible in the latest TPTP release (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/downloads/), please re-open.

1 Bugzillas resolved as a duplicate of another Bugzilla will not be verified/closed.
