         <p>Apache Sling uses Jira for tracking bug reports and requests for improvements,
new features, and other changes.</p>

<p>The issue tracker is available at <a href=""
rel="nofollow"></a> and is readable by
everyone. A Jira account is needed to create new issues and to comment on existing issues.
Use the <a href="!default.jspa" rel="nofollow">registration
form</a> to request an account if you do not already have one.</p>

<p>See below for guidelines on creating and managing issues.</p>

<h2><a name="IssueTracker-Issuetype"></a>Issue type</h2>

<p>When creating a new issue, select the issue type based as follows:</p>

<table class='confluenceTable'><tbody>
<th class='confluenceTh'> Issue type     </th>
<th class='confluenceTh'> Description </th>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Bug</b>          </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Bug reports are used for cases where Sling fails not function
as it should (as defined by some documentation). If you are not certain whether the issue
you've found is actually a bug, please ask the Sling <a href="/confluence/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=SLINGxSITE&amp;title=mailing+lists&amp;linkCreation=true&amp;fromPageId=2853620"
class="createlink">mailing lists</a> first for help. </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>New Feature</b>  </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Use a feature request when Sling does not have some functionality
you need. </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Improvement</b>  </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Use an improvement request to suggest improvements to existing
features. Typical improvement requests are about updating documentation, increasing stability
and performance, simplifying the implementation, or other such changes that make Sling better
without introducing new features or fixing existing bugs. </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Test</b>         </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Use this type when contributing test cases for existing features.
Normally test cases should be contributed as a part of the original feature request or as
regression tests associated with bug reports, but sometimes you just want to extend test coverage
by introducing new test cases. This issue type is for such cases. </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Task</b>         </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Used only for issues related to project infrastructure. </td>

<h2><a name="IssueTracker-Summary"></a>Summary</h2>

<p>The issue summary should be a short and clear statement that indicates the scope
of the issue. You are probably being too verbose if you exceed the length of the text field.
Use the Environment and Description fields to provide more detailed information.</p>

<h2><a name="IssueTracker-Issuepriority"></a>Issue priority</h2>

<p>Issue priority should be set according to the following:</p>

<table class='confluenceTable'><tbody>
<th class='confluenceTh'> Issue priority </th>
<th class='confluenceTh'> Description </th>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Blocker</b>      </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Legal or other fundamental issue that makes it impossible
to release Jackrabbit code </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Critical</b>     </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Major loss of functionality that affects many Slingusers
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Major</b>        </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Important issue that should be resolved soon </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Minor</b>        </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Nice to have issues </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  <b>Trivial</b>      </td>
<td class='confluenceTd'>  Trivial changes that can be applied whenever someone has
extra time </td>
