@@ -75,16 +75,35 @@ We can close duplicates with a comment that references the duplicated
issue. It adds a message to the Activity stream of the referenced
issue, which allows one to find duplicates later on if needed.
+And to ensure we can list issues that have really been resolved,
+add a "Duplicate" label.
## Other issues metadata
- Target version → Milestone
- Feature branch: GitLab will automatically link a branch that mentions
-- Category, Affected Tool, Priority, Status, Type of work → use a set
- of labels, each with a prefix, for each of them; and maybe simplify a bit.
- For example Qubes uses "P: $priority", "C: $category", etc.
- One can set multiple labels so we could perhaps merge "Category"
- and "Affected Tool".
+- Category, Affected Tool, Priority, Type of work → use a set of
+ labels, each with a prefix, for each of them; and maybe simplify

+ - Qubes uses "P: $priority", "C: $category", etc.
+ - One can set multiple labels so we could perhaps merge "Category"
+ and "Affected Tool". For example, a ticket about Thunderbird
+ persistence could have the two "C: email" and "C: persistence" labels.
+- Status: use a set of labels, each with a numerical prefix, because
+ it's an ordered flow:
+ - "0. Needs triage" (ideally, have it set automatically on newly
+ created issues; probably requires a webhook; otherwise, can be
+ done in batch regularly on all issues that have no status label
+ - "1. Backlog" ("Confirmed")
+ - "2. Working on it" (clearer than the too vague "In progress")
+ - "3. To review" (previously "Ready for QA")
+ - "4. To release" (i.e. closed issue but code not released yet,
+ to replace "Fix committed" which is too often misunderstood)
+- Status = Resolved → closed with neither "Rejected" nor "Duplicate" label
+- Status = Duplicate → closed with "Duplicate" laben
+- Status = Rejected → closed with "Rejected" label
- Log time → Time tracking
- Due date → Due date
- Starter → dedicated label
