Issue Workflow

Natanael Arndt edited this page May 22, 2013 · 2 revisions

The following rules should be applied to all items inserted in the “Issues-Section”.

When you file a new issue you should make sure to follow this work flow:

“You” means anybody, it can be a developer or just a user who doesn't know anything about programming. “We” means developers who participate in this project or me (the repository owner).

If you …:

  • … have a question and don't know how something should work or if it works correctly, create a new issue and give it the label “question” (yellow)
  • … see a bug, where something doesn't work as it is supposed to, create a new issue and give it the label “bug” (red)
  • … want to have a new feature or function implemented in xodx, create a new issue and give it the label “feature request” (light-green)

If we …:

  • … decide a feature request is valid and should be implemented we change the label to “enhancement” (green) or create a new issue with the label “enhancement” (green) and refer to the original feature request. Additionally we will add the issue to a milestone.
  • … decide a bug is valid we will add the issue to a milestone.

If you …:

  • … think we don't have enough time to resolve your issues, than you are completely correct. In this case you should fork the repository and implement the required changes and send a pull-request with an explanation of what the new code does and how it does, what it does. This will also result in a new pull-request-issue.

For those who read “Sommerville: Software Engineering”:

The label “feature request” is comparable to a “user-requirement” and the label “enhancement” should be comparable to a “functional specification”.
