Hi Jaap,

The issue tracker at github let's you label tickets as amongst others bug, enhancement, question, etc. You can also add your own labels, e.g., to separate between concrete actionable feature requests and ideas / outlines that are not yet actionable. These should be sufficient to separate feature requests and bug reports. The key to make this work (independent on the tool) lies i.m.h.o. in having one or more persons that monitor all issues, and assign the appropriate label (or re-assign if the issue reporter applied the wrong label). I guess the most obvious persons would be the participating developers, as these would also know to whom to assign tasks, but others could step in as well (I for one wouldn't mind helping in this respect).


Cheers,

Paulo

If we do use the issue tracker to also track feature requests, there is a need for a process for those as well. More specifically a process to ensure the quality of the open requests. What happened in the launchpad tracker is that we have hundreds of requests, some which are actionable, some which are just an idea or an outline of an idea. I haven;t been able to clean it up, because we have no process to refine or close requests.

    @Ale Great idea! I think it's quite easy to import the existing
    issues from Launchpad into GitHub and label them appropriately to
    have a good overview.

        Not as such. We have captured a lot of wishlist requests in
        the bug tracker, but I'm afraid that that greatly diminished
        the usefulness of the bug tracker for real bugs. My intention
        for the github branch is to use the issue tracker purely for
        bugs and look elsewhere for keeping track of feature requests
        and discussion. Not decided yet how and where to do that -
        for now they can keep on living in the launchpad tracker. Any
        suggestions?
        I think you can easily keep track and manage bugs, feature
        requests and discussions in GitHub, using different and
        specific labels for issues or pull requests (e.g.
        https://medium.com/@dave_lunny/sane-github-labels-c5d2e6004b63).

        Ale
