Bugs in the Installer
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:
Traditional index of bugs.
Bugs in other packages in Debian that affect d-i.
Long-term issue with grub-installer detection of where to install the bootloader
Tagging Bug Reports
- Selecting sets of bugs using usertags is not properly documented.
Some of the usertags we have defined include:
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
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.
What to do with the d-i bugs is documented in /BugsPolicy
