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

  • accessibility

  • 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 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 an exhaustive list of tags in regular use. Perhaps we should develop one similar to that used by the KDE team.

Further Processing

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