[wtp-dev] How to plan for bug fixes?
As was mentioned in the status meeting
today, we don't seem to have a "phase" of planning that includes
existing, or old bugs.
It seems "overkill" to mark
them with the 'plan' keyword, since not a new feature, it would dilute
the planning documents, but we do need to plan for them!
Unless someone has a better idea, I
suggest this be done by simply marking bugs with "3.1" milestone
target it you (committers) think that it should be addressed in 3.1. This
isn't a promise that it will be, but a statement of intent. (As always,
Dali would use 2.1).
And, rather than just marking all
bugs as "3.1" :(
I suggest project leads apply some focus
to the big hitters.
For example, it seems nearly all "highly
voted" bugs should be added to 3.1 "plans" ... similar for
nearly all "major" bugs.
I'm sure there might be some cases where
you (committers) do NOT plan to fix a bug in 3.1, and perhaps those are
ones that could be marked 'future' (after you assess importance vs. effort)
and/or mark as "helpwanted" if you think it's a good idea, but
you already know you (and your core teams) won't have the time or ability
to fix it in 3.1.
Accordingly, I've added a few more queries
to our Plan
Document that should help you
to focus your triage efforts.
Summary Bugzilla Queries
The following table shows all 'plan' (keyword) items for
all targets and components.
The following table shows all items targeted for WTP 3.1
that are not plan items, per se.
3.1 Targeted bugs
Triage bugzilla for candidate items to target
As planning progresses, we will expect these types of bugs
(major, or ones with many votes) to become less and less in number.
As always, if anyone has any better or additional
ideas, please say so.
