Bugzilla:Priority System

Warning signWarning: If you are looking for information about priorities of bugs in Firefox and other Mozilla products, please see the triage process page. This page only covers the main Bugzilla project.

We have a Priority system for enhancements:

  • P1 = We definitely want this. It's a major feature, and it's obvious that it would be useful to everybody.
  • P2 = We want this, but it's not totally clear or extremely important.
  • P3 = This isn't a bad idea, and maybe we'll want to implement it at some point in the future, but it's not near-term roadmap material. Some core Bugzilla developer may work on it.
  • P4 = This isn't a terrible idea, but it's not important to our long-term plans for Bugzilla. We would review a patch if somebody posted it, but a core developer is unlikely to work on it. If the patch proves to be too complex, there's a chance that the feature will be marked WONTFIX or delayed until some unknown future release.
  • P5 = We basically never want this. If somebody implements it and asks for review, we might look at it. If a posted patch involves any significant complexity, it will likely be rejected.

If the priority of a bug isn't set, and you want it to be, come ask us on IRC.

If you want a broader understanding of which features we are most likely to accept, see The Feature Acceptance Test.
