I've noticed some activity on Bugzilla
that has removed the target milestone of Hot Bugs and set their Priority
As I recall it, we adopted the P4 convention
to deal with bugs that appeared in the in-box. We agreed to set them to
P4 to indicate that we had looked at them but could not assign them yet
or target them yet. Marking them as P4 was just a way to flag them as having
been looked at.
For Hot Bugs, please leave the priority
as P2 at least. Also, it would be better to leave the target milestone
to a milestone in the targetting release, e.g. if you can't commit for
1.5 M1 then set it for 1.5 M2, and try to pull if forward. Removing the
taget milestone altogether leaves the wrong impression. We really need
to show adopters that we are giving these bugs high attention.
We can discuss this more post-WTP 1.0.
Let's leave the priorities at P2 for now please. Let's focus on fixing
the bugs. We can fine tune our process later. Thx.
