Subject Re: [jira] Good issue resolution guideline (was: [classlib]volunteer to supply patches for old JIRAs)
Date Wed, 20 Sep 2006 06:44:03 GMT
I've combined all the ideas. And here is the result.

=== cut ===
This guideline covers a wide range of issues but not all of them.
If you cannot do one of the steps, then write a comment to the issue.
Use your common sense!

Issue reporter:
1. Explicitly state the expected behavior and the
actual behavior of Harmony code. Use links to specs, rfcs, etc.
2. Try to create as small a test case as possible. A patch
to test will be highly appreciated.
3. Provide max. information about steps necessary to recreate the bug.
If a patch for the test has not been supplied, provide as much
diagnostic information about the failure as possible (stack trace,
failure output, expected output etc).
4. Remember to use issue links if applicable.
5. Check the issue resolution when it is committed. Add a comment.

Resolution provider :) :
Depending on the type of issue, do the following:
1. Issue is probably a non-bug difference, not a bug or invalid:
   1.1. Discuss on the dev list.
   1.2. Add a link to the discussion thread as a comment to issue.
2. Issue is a bug:
   2.1. Notify the community that you started investigation by adding
a comment to the issue. If you cannot produce a patch, add another
comment with the results of your investigation.
   2.2. If reporter did not provide a patch to test:
       2.2.1. Try to create a patch to test.
       2.2.2. If you cannot produce a patch, write a comment about it.
   2.3. Create a patch to fix the issue
       2.3.1. Any concerns? Discuss on the dev list. Add a link to
discussion as a comment.
   2.4. All the pacthes (test and fix) should be relative to the
directory where the main build.xml is:
   2.5. If the patch requires to add, remove or move some files in the
repository, add the appropriate script.
   2.6. Check that all unit tests pass.
   2.7. If it is an application-oriented issue, check the application.
   2.8. Remember to use issue links if applicable.

Depending on the issue type, do:
1. Issue is a non-bug difference, not a bug or invalid:
Close the issue.
2. Issue is a bug:
   2.1. If a patch to test is available, apply it.
   2.2. Check that the test fails.
   2.3. Apply the fix for the issue.
   2.4. Check that test succeeds now.
   2.5. Make sure that all unit tests pass.
   2.6. For application-oriented issues, check the application.
   2.7. If there are problems on previous steps, post a comment to
JIRA and let "resolution provider" to resolve.
   2.8. Make sure that the issue reporter is happy with the resolution.
   2.9. Add revision info into JIRA issue
