Subject: [gentoo-dev] RFC --- Thoughts on devrel bug content
Date: Wed, 11 Jan 2006 19:06:56
1 The attached note in form of RFC contains some thoughts on how to make a
2 devrel bug reporting inappropriate behavior more effective. The
3 original has been reviewed by the people most immediately involved in
4 processing such bugs (devrel, qa, ombudsman), and the attached version
5 incorporates improvements suggested by ferringb, kingtaco, and
6 plasmaroo. I am now distributing it to the gentoo-dev community for
7 comments and for consideration when submitting new bug reports against
8 personnel.
10 The reason for the RFC is that recently there have been several new
11 developer bug reports submitted, and some of them are hard to interpret
12 and process correctly because of incomplete context. The theme of the
13 RFC is that a report of a misbehaving developer is similar to a report
14 of a misbehaving package, and should contain analogous information. The
15 RFC itself is much less pretentious than this introduction.
17 The RFC is also available on-line at
18 --- if you wish
19 to compare, the original version is present in the ~fmccor/devrel
20 directory too.
