Importance labels should be set when the status reaches Confirmed stage. It is a combination of short-term impact (unavailability of a feature), long-term impact (data corruption, security breach), number of people affected, and presence of a documented workaround. Use these as guidelines:
All new issues submitted by community users initially should have status New.
If issue is lacking information to reproduce or assess importance of the issue, it’s status should be changed to Incomplete.
Once the issue is reproduced it should be prioritized and assigned status Confirmed.
When the issue is merged into development or release branch it’s status s hould be updated to Fix Committed.
Note: Since Galaxy is a community project, we should be careful about closing issues. Closing issues before release leads to users confusion, because it’s unclear whether the fix is applied or not.
When the issue is released, it should be updated with status Fix Released, the milestone the milestone/version it was fixed in and then closed.
If the issue is closed with status Invalid or Won’t fix it should include comment that describes motivation behind the decision.
devel branch is the default branch in Galaxy repository. It is used
as a primary merge target for all feature and bugfix pull requests.
master branch points to a latest release version, which is running
on Galaxy web site.
