Seif, we are not shipping HACKING in our release tarball, so it does not really matter *when* changes to the HACKING document enter lp:zeitgeist. So my idea is, let's get 0.5.1 out first, then discuss this topic further, and once our bug triaging process is described in HACKING it takes effect.

Status in Zeitgeist Framework: Confirmed Bug description: I've discussed the bugtriaging topic with Seif on irc yesterday, it turned out that we have different opinions on how to triage bugs for the zeitgeist project. We agreed that this needs some discussion, and the final words should be put in our HACKING document. Here is an extract of our discussion: ------------------------------------------------ <thekorn> seif_: can you please tell me what your criteria for choosing the importance of a bugreport is? <thekorn> I think we should have one definition for importance level throught the whole team <seif_> thekorn, yeah <seif_> thekorn, if its a build problem or a crash then its critical <seif_> :P <seif_> if its a wrong functionality then its high <thekorn> and medium,low or wishlist? <seif_> if its an incomplete feature its medium <seif_> low and wishlist are intuition <seif_> :P <thekorn> seif_: so if someone tries to build zeitgeist on some very rare linux system, but the build fails, this bug will automatically be critical? <seif_> yeah <seif_> it means we cant delivder <seif_> but ofcourse define rare <thekorn> only one affected user <seif_> hmmmmmm <seif_> i think it should be seen on a distro level <seif_> thekorn, what distro is he using <seif_> actually wrong <seif_> if he is using our dependencies <seif_> then it should work <thekorn> seif_: also, what dos "fix committed" mean for you? <seif_> there is a fix in the branches <thekorn> in which branch? <thekorn> lp:~thekorn/+junk/boo.bar.baz? <seif_> any branch proposed for merging <thekorn> ok, and fix released means: the fix landed in lp:zeitgeist? <thekorn> so lp:zeitgeist is our release target, and we do not really care about release tarballs? <seif_> thekorn, nope <seif_> i thought u said trunk always has to be stable <seif_> thus we work in branches <thekorn> IMHO, fix releasedm eans: we have a tarball release which shipps this fix <thekorn> and fix committed means it's in lp:zeitgeist <thekorn> in progress means, there is a fix somewhere <seif_> thekorn, ok _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~zeitgeist More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
