As we discussed on IRC, I have sometimes considered four categories:
- Fix it now.
- Retriage regularly (say, every release).
- Retriage periodically (as a background task).
- Do not retriage unless requested to do so. Will get fixed when it gets fixed.
Currently, we don’t have the “retriage regularly category”, I don’t think. I would sort of like to use a milestone-per-release as the “fix it now” category; P-high for retriage regularly; P-medium for retriage periodically; and P-low for “do not retriage unless requested”.
The idea would be that after every release we focus on p-high bugs, than focus on p-medium bugs until the next release.
At some point we also discussed the idea of reviewing issues opened since the last triage meeting and so forth. But I think that would require more regular meetings.
