Development management

Cycle tracking

  • Match up with release cycles, no open ended development
  • The idea is to pick enough bugs to fill a release cycle
  • Limits the amount of work people have on their plate
  • Each cycle has polish bugs mixed in in addition to normal bug work

Priority field as a classification

  • p1 - serious bugs, show stoppers, release blockers
  • p2 - general bugs, really want to fix, easy to reproduce
  • p3 - corner case bugs, low occurrence, hard to reproduce, polish bugs, non-breaking
  • p5 - future, fix optional, community, good first bug

Tracking Lists

Bugzilla Tracking flags

These flags have been mothballed (8/30/2017).

  • Instead, "tpi:+" is assumed to be true when a bug is assigned a Priority.
  • tpi:- will still be used to indicate a bug is not going to be tracked at all by platform integration.
  • flag name: tracking-pi (or) tpi:x
  • whiteboard tag: 'tpi:x'
    • flag values: ?, -, +, a (active)
