Bugzilla Infos for Committers
- when triaging bugs:
- set status to assigned if the bugs appears valid
- set priority if needed (see section below)
- when start working on a bug
- assign it to yourself
- copy others that might be interested
- when stop working on a bug
- reassign to inbox to broadcast subsequent changes
- when closing a bug
- reassign to inbox before closing to broadcast the change
- shortly describe the problem/solution
- set target milestone for fixed bugs
We use priorities as follows:
- P1: Should be fixed within the current milestone.
- P3: Normal bug (default).
- P5: It's a valid bug, but will not fix it in the foreseeable future.
RAP uses the 'Status Whiteboard' field to label bugs with:
- srNNN used for tagging bugs that are fixed in the maintenance branch of the last release. See Backporting fixes for service releases
- srNNN? used for tagging bugs should be backported to the maintenance branch of the last release. See Backporting fixes for service releases
qx-openobsolete. Has been used for bugs that depend on an unresolved qooxdoo bug. The bug id of the qooxdoo bug should be found in one of the comments. qx-closed: obsolete. Has been used once a blocking qooxdoo bug was resolved (see qx-open). This way, all unresolved RAP bugs could be identified that should be solved after migrating to the next qooxdoo service release. extend-rwtobsolete. Has been used only for the 1.2 plan. All bugs labeled that way will be shown in the Reduce the gap between RWT and SWT theme.
