After a discussion on IRC, a few of us were considering the value of
adding suggestions on handling of bugs in Bugzilla from a developer (and
editbugs user) perspective.
These is the simplest set I have to start, but I'd really like other
comments and ideas.
1. General case
- You should only close bugs that you are assigned or if you (or an alias
you represent) just fixed them.
- If you fix a bug and AREN'T already getting mail for it, you should
add yourself to the CC list, to listen for regressions or responses
2. Special cases
2.1. STABLEREQ, KEYWORDREQ
The last arch on the list should close the bug when they have completed
2.2. Security bugs
The developer should comment, but ONLY members of the security team
- change whiteboard
- add/remove arches
- change bug status/reso
