Bug tags

Bug tags

The main TripleO bug tracker is used to keep track of bugs for multiple projects that are all parts of TripleO. In order to reduce confusion, we are using a list of approved tags to categorize them.

Problem Description

Given the heavily interconnected nature of the various TripleO projects, there is a desire to track all the related bugs in a single bug tracker. However when it is needed, it can be difficult to narrow down the bugs related to a specific aspect of the project. Launchpad bug tags can help us here.

Policy

The Launchpad official tags list for TripleO contains the following tags. Keeping them official in Launchpad means the tags will auto-complete when users start writing them. A bug report can have any combination of these tags, or none.

Proposing new tags should be done via policy update (proposing a change to this file). Once such a change is merged, a member of the driver team will create/delete the tag in Launchpad.

Alternatives & History

The current ad-hoc system is not working well, as people use inconsistent subject tags and other markers. Likewise, with the list not being official Launchpad tags do not autocomplete and quickly become inconsistent, hence not as useful.

We could use the wiki to keep track of the tags, but the future of the wiki is in doubt. By making tags an official policy, changes to the list can be reviewed.

Work Items

Once the policy has merged, someone with the appropriate Launchpad permissions should create the tags and an email should be sent to openstack-dev referring to this policy.
