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

  • Bugs in packages maintained by the d-i team, excluding old installation reports and other cruft.

  • Bugs sorted by architecture.

    • Note that bugs may be tagged as applying to more than one architecture, but will only show up once, in the first listed architecture.
  • Here are some links to just display architecture-specific bugs: ?alpha] ?amd64] ?arm] ?hppa] ?i386] ?ia64] ?m68k] ?mips] ?mipsel] ?powerpc] ?s390] ?sparc]

  • Traditional index of bugs.

  • Bugs in other packages in Debian that affect d-i.

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

  • accessibility

  • serial : bugs involving serial console installs. bts link

  • Any Debian architecture for bugs specific to that architecture. (i386, powerpc, etc).
  • debian-edu : bugs affecting only DebianEdu. bts link

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

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