Talk:Bug management/Bug report life cycle

Latest comment: 1 year ago by Wladek92 in topic nothing about Jenkins ?


Some people seem to use UNCONFIRMED to mean "Maybe we should WONTFIX this". Isn't UNCONFIRMED supposed to be used only for situations in which no one has been able thus far to reproduce the complained-about problem, but also the results of experimentation haven't yet made it seem unlikely that anyone will be able to reproduce it by the steps described in the bug report?

I don't have a strong opinion here. UNCONFIRMED seems to be also used for "I am not convinced that this is a valid request" sometimes, which is close to "I cannot confirm that this is valid" to me. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 09:21, 2 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, it seems like a good definition would be "possibly INVALID". Leucosticte (talk) 16:29, 1 September 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The definition of invalid here seems to imply upstream issues are invalid, which they usually aren't considered as such. Bawolff (talk) 06:04, 29 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

“Upstream” is also a way to say “out of scope of the project”. So I think it is consistent with the other invalid cases. --Danwe (talk) 17:00, 26 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Duplicate and Verified[edit]

When I edit a task, the only statuses available to me in the dropdown are: Open, Resolved, Stalled, Declined, and Invalid. Do you know why my list is different from what is documented on this page? --KSmith (WMF) (talk) 17:02, 20 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@KSmith (WMF): "Verified" is a project (meh, the page says "keyword"). It's only mentioned because it was a status in Bugzilla. You cannot set the status duplicate (as that would not create any connection to the master task), instead you have to "merge duplicates in" and define the number of the duplicate task. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 18:35, 20 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In progress[edit]

I often miss the information about whether a task is in progress (being discussed or developed). This might be obvious to team members telling each other what they work on, but not to volunteers and third-parties. Was the option to add "In progress" to the available statuses discussed before? —Aron Man.🍂 edits🌾 08:29, 10 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

nothing about Jenkins ?[edit]

Change life seems finished when in gerrit, validated by human rereading, but one part is missing here or should be linked for further reading => What happens then if the correction is rejected by continuous integration or breaks something at execution time  ? -- Christian 🇫🇷 FR (talk) 20:38, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
