Fixing a Bug

When attaching a patch for inspection, please follow the procedure in Submitting Patches.

Resolving a Bug

When an issue is resolved and awaiting verification from the person who filed it, it is marked RESOLVED. From here, bugs either become REOPENED, are marked VERIFIED by the person who filed the bug, or are CLOSED for good (when the product ships). CLOSED is rarely used.

A bug can be resolved for one of a number of reasons:

  • A fix for the issue was checked into the tree and tested (FIXED).
  • The bug report was too vague, described a non-bug, or is otherwise not useful (INVALID).
  • The issue is valid, but no action will be taken anytime soon (REMIND).
  • The issue is valid, but no action will ever be taken (WONTFIX).
  • The issue cannot be reproduced (WORKSFORME).
  • The issue is already filed elsewhere (DUPLICATE).

Private Groups

If you are the member of a private group, a checkbox will appear in the bug submission form and in the bug status. Check this box to make the bug visible only to members of the group (typically your organization and Lustre staff). This is frequently used for bugs which contain sensitive information or have severe security implications.

Reports and Searches

Bugzilla can generate reports in the form of tables and charts for various criteria.

Note: If you want to distribute a chart, please don't link to the chart page itself, because it will re-run the query for each hit. Instead, save the image somewhere, then link to the image directly.

Saved Searches

If you find yourself running the same searches frequently, you may wish to save them to the toolbar. It will give you one-click access to the search results that you use the most.

For example, clicking on this link will add a query named "All Bugs" that will show you all open Lustre bugs.

This link will add a query named "Important", which will show you all open bugs with a priority of P3 and higher.
