~+Tagging Bug Reports+~

We use [[https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2005/09/msg00002.html|usertags]] to categorise the bugs, with a {{{user}}} of debian-boot@lists.debian.org.
 * How to set usertags is [[https://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2005/10/msg00229.html|documented in this E-mail]], see also [[bugs.debian.org/usertags| the wiki page]].
 * Selecting sets of bugs using usertags is not properly documented.

Some of the usertags we have defined include:

  * {{{not-d-i}}} : for bugs that don't actually affect d-i, just some other aspect of a package maintained by debian-boot@lists.debian.org. [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=not-d-i|bts link]]
  * {{{old-report}}} : for "old" installation reports. [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=old-report|bts link]]
    FIXME: what criteria are used when applying this?
  * {{{usability}}} : [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=usability|bts link]]
  * {{{accessibility}}} : [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=accessibility|bts link]]
  * {{{serial}}} : bugs involving serial console installs. [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=serial|bts link]]
  * {{{<arch>}}} : Any Debian architecture for bugs specific to that architecture, e.g. [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=i386|i386]], [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=powerpc|powerpc]], etc.
  * {{{debian-edu}}} : bugs affecting only DebianEdu. [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org;tag=debian-edu|bts link]]
  * the full list of tags can be found using [[https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=debian-boot@lists.debian.org|this url]] or [[https://udd.debian.org/cgi-bin/bts-usertags.cgi?user=debian-boot@lists.debian.org|via UDD]]

The {{{d-i}}} tag should be used only on bugs that are not in packages maintained by the d-i team, but which still affect d-i. (It is a BTS [[https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#tags|tag]] not a usertag.)

We don't have any more guidance than the list above on which tags to use for what. Perhaps we should develop guidelines similar to that used by the [[https://qt-kde-team.pages.debian.net/usertags.html|KDE team]].

~+Further Processing+~

What to do with the d-i bugs is documented in [[DebianInstaller/BugsPolicy|/BugsPolicy]]

Bugs in the Installer

Some useful views of the DebianInstaller bugs in the bug tracking system:

Tagging Bug Reports

We use usertags to categorise the bugs, with a user of debian-boot@lists.debian.org.

Some of the usertags we have defined include:

  • not-d-i : for bugs that don't actually affect d-i, just some other aspect of a package maintained by debian-boot@lists.debian.org. bts link

  • old-report : for "old" installation reports. bts link

    • FIXME: what criteria are used when applying this?
  • usability : bts link

  • accessibility : bts link

  • serial : bugs involving serial console installs. bts link

  • <arch> : Any Debian architecture for bugs specific to that architecture, e.g. i386, powerpc, etc.

  • debian-edu : bugs affecting only DebianEdu. bts link

  • the full list of tags can be found using this url or via UDD

The d-i tag should be used only on bugs that are not in packages maintained by the d-i team, but which still affect d-i. (It is a BTS tag not a usertag.)

We don't have any more guidance than the list above on which tags to use for what. Perhaps we should develop guidelines similar to that used by the KDE team.

Further Processing

What to do with the d-i bugs is documented in /BugsPolicy
