4 Totally guilty of that one, sorry!
6 I think adding a status would be great. We could have CONFIRMED and even
7 RESOLVED still, but the goalpost could be moved to CONFIRMED/STABLE
8 instead of CONFIRMED/RESOLVED. Pushing the fix to git can still resolve
9 a problem, but the STABLE status would mean that the package that fixed
10 the bug then hit stable.
12 The problem with this, however, is that it turns every bug into the
13 subject of the bug *and* a stabilization bug. Are we to get rid of
14 stabilization bugs altogether? Or do we keep stabilization bugs and
15 merely update all the dependent bugs to CONFIRMED/STABLE once
16 stabilization happens?
18 A workflow suggestion would be great, because I care about fixing my
19 bugs and getting them to users as fast as what's reasonable.
21 (That said I have a busy weekend ahead of me with lighttpd...)
