What is "Bug Triage"?

Please have one thread per issue, and try to summarize the issue concisely in the thread title so others can find related issues here.

What is "Bug Triage"?

Post by FourthWorld » Fri Feb 27, 2015 11:11 pm

Bug Triage is a place where we can discuss possible bugs to determine if they really are bugs, and to work with others when we have difficulty pinning down a repeatable recipe for reproducing them.

Once a recipe is established please file a bug report including it:
http://quality.runrev.com/

Please use a new thread for each new issue, and to help minimize duplicate threads it's usually a good idea to search here for related issues before creating a new thread.

Personally, I think it's fine where it is. It covers a wide variety of things, only some of which may possibly be bugs but let's let that thread play out where it is for now. If we pin down specific issues there we can probably just report them directly to the bug DB where they belong, so at this time I don't see a need to move that particular thread.

That said, if you find a new issue that seems like a bug but can't find a recipe for it, by all means feel free to make a thread to explore that here in Bug Triage.
