Triage Guidelines

The Product Backlog is continually maintained to ensure relative priorities are understood.

  • Priorities follow the Firefox Desktop Standard:

Go to WebRTC bugs to search for all open WebRTC bugs (including untriaged and unconfirmed bugs).

    • Priority 1 - Blocker, must-fix before shipping. Almost by definition of P1, the "affected" flags and "tracking" flags for the bug should be set when it's triaged.
    • Priority 2 - High priority backlog (bugs we are currently working on or will be working on next)
    • Priority 3 - Lower priority backlog
    • Priority 4 - Bugs we will accept patches for
    • Priority 5 - Parking lot (Bugs we do not plan to spend any time on)
  • RANK: The Rank field lets us prioritize bugs within a priority bucket (P2, P3, etc) in bugzilla. To have some rhyme/reason to the order - Rank should relate to Priority. The "Ranking" number does not need to be unique. Unless there is a reason to for a bug to be considered before (or after) others in the Priority bucket - the triager will default to mid-range value.
    • P1 Rank options=0-9, default 5
    • P2 Rank options=10-19, default 15
    • P3 Rank options=20-29, default 25
    • P4 Rank options=30-39, default 35
    • P5 Rank options=40-49, default 45
      • Note: P5 and "parking-lot"-labelled bugs are treated identically. We no longer use "parking-lot"; it is a legacy classification.

  • QE-Verify is a flag that developers should be setting. QE uses to filter which bugs they check.
    • "+" means that QE should look at the bug and it can be verified with human eyes
    • "-" means QE should not look at
      • Typically QE-verify"-" goes with "in-testsuite" being set to "+", to show testing via another method.

Filing a bug

  • Open a bug under Product:"Core" || Component: "WebRTC, WebRTC:Audio, WebRTC:Network or WebRTC:Signaling"
    • After triage, bugs will be marked "firefox-blocking", with a Priority, and a Rank
  • If there is a bug that should be considered for taking ASAP - you can mark "firefox-backlog"+
    • Before it can be given a Rank it should:
      • be in an actionable state
      • for defects, the problem is ready for Engineering or UX: diagnosis, measurement, design, or fixing
      • for feature requests or enhancements, it means that there's a clear problem statement or suggestion
      • has a difficulty/user-impact ratio low enough that we can reasonably expect to spend time fixing the bug within the next 6 months

Contributor Engagement

  • Add Whiteboard tag of [well filed] to the well filed bugs to acknowledge that we appreciate the effort and thoroughness
  • Add Whiteboard tag of [good first bug] for contributors to pick up

libwebrtc Updates

  • Stand-up = 2 minutes on what have you been working on, planning to work on, and are you blocked. Bring-up topics for longer Discussion at end if needed.
    • Developers and active contributors only need to attend one of the two sessions each week. We have 2 sessions due to the number of very different time zones throughout the team.
    • please update the Stand-up Notes etherpad if you cannot make the meeting (even if it's just to say you're on PTO)
