  • Enhancement means the issue describes a WIBNIF (wouldn't it be nice if)
  • Low means the issue is non-critical, and is really more of an annoyance than anything else
  • Normal means that this is probably a bug, but can be lived with
  • Urgent means it really is a bug, and can't be lived with
  • Show-Stopping means issue is preventing work from being done
Priority select 1     M

Current State

Brand new issues
  • New the issue has just been found, and hasn't been analysed yet, or there is new data about an existing issue.
Work in Progress
  • Being Worked On the issue has been analysed, and is being worked on by the developer named inthe "Waiting For" field.
  • Confirmed the issue has been analysed, and the priority has been confirmed (or changed) by a developer. The item can henceforth be classified regarding release blocking status etc. Someone needs to pick it up and fix it.
  • On Order required software or other material is on order and nothing further can be done until it arrives
  • Waiting for feedback the report was insufficient to analyse the issue, and more feedback is needed from the person named in the "Waiting For" field. Once the reporter has added feedback they should flip the state back to "New". If feedback is not received within 30 days, the issue will be discarded.
Closed or zombie'd
  • Closed the issue has been fixed to the satisfaction of the fixer, and has been through the "Waiting for release" state, and is now released to end users. If the reporter isn't satisfied with the fix, they should flip the state back to "New" and explain why. Note that bugs reported against new code (code that has not been released yet) or Extensions (Plugins etc) may jump straight to "Closed" without going through "Waiting for Release" first.
  • Deferred the issue will not be fixed for the release currently being worked on. The text should explain why.
  • No Action Required the issue was already fixed, or it's a duplicate, or a RTFM, or could not be reproduced and feedback was never received.
  • Awaiting New Rel typically for a periodic action; done until new release
Please make sure there is an entry in the details explaining any state change.
CurrentState select 1     M

Waiting For

  • If the Current State is "Waiting for Feedback" then this report is waiting for attention from the person named in this field.
  • If the Current State is "Being Worked On" that person is working on this problem (please do not set this on behalf of others! It should only be set by the person doing the work.)
