Prioritizing bugs

We use 5 bug priority levels, which effectively define the short term roadmap. Priority is usually set after the bug has been confirmed by one of the developers.

  • P1: Must be fixed immediately, drop any other work.
  • P2: We want to ship this soon, possibly in the current quarter.
  • P3: Default starting point, possibly shipping in the following two quarters.
  • P4: We expect it to be fixed someday.
  • P5: A valid bug, but we might never fix it, unless you provide a patch.

Fun read from the past!
