Bug tracker changes

Nick Hall
Devs,

I have made the following changes to the bug tracker:

1. There are now only three active projects:  Gramps, Feature Requests
and Gramps Manual.

All new bugs should be reported using the "Gramps" project.  There is a
product version number for all open bugs.

Where bugs didn't have a product version, I have assigned one based on
the information in the bug report.  When I couldn't find an exact
version, I have assigned "3.4.x" or "4.0.x".

There are still closed and resolved bugs in the Gramps 3.3, Gramps 3.4
and Gramps 4.0 projects.  Many of them don't have product version
numbers.  This is why I haven't moved them yet.

2. Notifications will only be sent to the bug reporter, developer
assigned to the bug, and people monitoring the bug.

Previously if a person added a note to a bug they would get email
notifications about it.  This was annoying.

I have made the change global, but it is possible to change the setting
on a per user basis.

3. Only managers and administrators are allowed to add bugs to a roadmap.

Developers no longer have permission to add bugs to roadmaps.  The
priority field should be used to indicate the importance of a bug.

Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.

Regards,


Nick.

You might consider changing "Gramps Manual" to something more
general, "Gramps Documentation " possibly, since I have (rarely)
seen wiki bugs filed on the bug tracker.  It's just a thought, since
I don't think we have a "manual" anymore.

Great streamlining Nick, glad we have that covered now too! I think the single project approach will be much more natural.

I see you added 4.2.0, instead of the trunk or master I made originally. I'm ok with this, but perhaps as there is no 4.2.0 to add unstable or devel or something, so as not to confuse submitters not knowing what 4.2 is.

There is no way to change the product version for multiple issues using
the user interface.

What happens when 4.2 is released?  We would want to change all "trunk",
"develop" or "unstable" versions to "4.2.0".

Since Mantis uses a SQL database, it should be possible to do this with
a single SQL update command.  This will need investigating.

I would also like to transfer all the resolved and closed issues into
the new Gramps project.  Again, the problem is that there are too many
issues without a version number to assign manually.

Nick.

I have not investigated in detail, but I can confirm that it should not
be difficult to 'change all "trunk", "develop" or "unstable" versions to
"4.2.0".' using the mysql database direct...

I'll need a clear direction from developers if you want me to do that
sort of thing, so I don't just do it on one person's ideas.

As to Gramps project subversions, the interface allows changing the identifier for people with admin rights,
https://gramps-project.org/bugs/manage_proj_ver_edit_page.php?version_id=53

I'll leave it to Nick H to select a good wording, I'd suggest unstable. When 4.2 is close to release and split off, we can rename it back to 4.2, and create a new unstable version.

I have changed it to "unstable".

Renaming a version doesn't update entries in the bug table, but Nick W
is able to do this via SQL.
