Bugzilla components don't tend to align properly with project boundaries, so this team is monitoring bugs across a number of components that contain the whiteboard tag [fxsearch]. Common components of interest are Firefox:Location bar, Firefox:Search, Toolkit:Places and more.

Selecting a New Bug for the Current Release

  1. Select any 'P1' bug which is currently unassigned and not blocked on a dependency. If no 'P1' bugs are available then select from the available 'P2' bugs, and so on.
  2. Add the following if not already present:
  • [fxsearch] whiteboard tag.
  • QE verification flag.

Adding a New Bug to the Backlog

  1. Add the [fxsearch] whiteboard tag.
  2. Set the bug as a dependency of a user story bug or a meta bug if applicable.
  3. The bug priority will be set during the Weekly Meeting:
  • 'P1': Must Have - development occurring in the current release.
  • 'P2': Should Have - targeted for next release.
  • 'P3': Could Have - planned for development in an upcoming release.
  • 'P5': Will Have - not scheduled for any particular release, patches accepted.

Submitting a Bug for Triage

  1. Add the [fxsearch] whiteboard tag.
  2. Leave the priority field empty (--).
