I would like to have a system so that we can tag issues as
important. But I think they fall in a few categories:
- Features for the next minor/major release (so 3.1 or 4.0)
that we find important. I've created a new milestone for that:
https://github.com/openssl/openssl/milestone/18 (Post 3.0.0)
We've also had a Post 1.1.1 milestone, but that seems to be just
things that didn't block the 1.1.1 release, maybe some more
things can be moved over.
I suggest we do not add all feature requests to the new
milestone, so that we can have some kind of overview.
- Features we want in before beta 1: The 3.0.0 beta1 milestone
- Bugs that need to get fixed before the 3.0.0 release:
currently using the 3.0.0 milestone
- Important bugs that affect the stable releases. I've started
tagging bugs that have "triaged: bug" also with the branches
that are affected. But that doesn't say how important it is.
I have 2 proposals for that:
- Create a milestone for them, like 1.1.1-stable. In cases we
have multiple supported branches, we can add for instance a
3.0-stable and use the oldest branches that's a affected
as the target. This would at least match what we do now
with the "3.0.0" milestone.
- Create a label for the severity. I'm not sure we need things
like "severity: minor", but it might be useful too.
