  • Who: Screeners
  • Report: Open tickets 
  • Goal: decide whether the bug or enhancement described in the ticket is actually a real bug or enhancement. 
  • Process (see: Creating Tickets):
    1. Is the ticket about 1 thing?  If not, then either split the ticket yourself or ask the submitter to do so.
    2. Does the ticket clearly state the problem? If not, then either update yourself or ask the submitter to do so.
    3. For larger enhancements / features, it is probably better to suggest the submitter post to clojure-dev and then create a page on the design wiki instead.
    4. For bugs, there should be some demonstration that the problem actually exists (output from a repl, test, etc). Verify the problem exists in the current release of Clojure.
    5. Does the ticket include a link to other relevant discussion (such as a clojure-dev thread, IRC conversation, etc)?
    6. At this stage, it is not necessary for there to be a patch or to validate it fixes the problem.
  • Actions, pick one of:
    • Comment on ticket to ask for more information, better description, better demonstration of problem, etc
    • Close with Resolution=Decline, reasons: 
      • Not a bug: submitter misunderstood or misused a feature or ticket doesn't make sense
      • Scope too big: feature may be better served by creating a page in the design wiki than in a ticket
      • Enhancement not wanted: enhancement is not something we want to do
      • Duplicate: of existing ticket
      • Too many things: break this ticket apart into smaller pieces
    • Set Approval=Triaged - problem is ok
      • If needed, adjust ticket to standards of triaged ticket belowin Creating Tickets
Vetting 
  • Who: Rich
  • Report: Triaged tickets
  • Goal: second check on whether the bug/enhancement is worth working on and decision of whether it's suitable for the next release.
  • Actions:
    • Close w Resolution=Declined - as above, ticket may not be something we want to address
    • Set Approval=Vetted - problem is good
