Jason and I were talking a while back, and we both thought it would be
a good idea if we started using the SourceForge Bug and Feature
tracking a bit more than we have in the past.
What I mean by this really boils down to just a few items:
1) When we or a user encounter a bug in Fire, we should make sure it is
entered into the Bug Tracking database.
2) If you are working on a fix to a bug, go into the bug report and
change the "Assigned To" field to yourself. (If you decide you aren't
going to work on that fix, go ahead and switch it back to "nobody")
3) Once you fix a bug, change the status to "Fixed" and the state to
"Pending" - And include a note about which release this fix will be
included in. (Then when the release is made, we can make a mass change
from "Pending" to "Closed")
This way, it will be easier to know who is working on each bug and
avoid having efforts be duplicated.
Doing the above has made it easier for me to track what I have said I
would work on, I can prioritize the bugs and avoid having to backtrack
through emails and post-it notes to remember stuff. (Since us
old-timers keep forgetting things)
P.S. The same applies to new feature requests as well.
