Subject [RT] Add 'helpwanted' keyword to bugzilla
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2004 21:09:46 GMT
I've noticed that shortly (often only hours, or less) after some 
outstanding task is mentioned on the mailing list, someone steps up and 
does it. It's impressive.

Still, taking a hint from Mozilla's bugzilla, I wonder if it would make 
sense to add a "helpwanted" keyword to the tracking system.

I could be completely wrong, but it seems like quite a few bugs are 
currently assigned to '', which I take to mean that 
they haven't been deeply looked at/claimed yet.

Like in Mozilla, 'helpwanted' would mean that someone has looked at it 
and determined that they won't be able to get to in in the relative near 
term, that is, an explicit invitation to help out. It would encourage 
new people to jump in and help. It would also provide a deeper level of 
information than mail list messages which can be hard to follow due to 
volume. Longer term, it would be interesting to track the counts and 
lifecycles of 'helpwanted' bugs.
