Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22198
CLOSED status not documented
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:11 EDT
On the bug status documentation page, it doesn't document the CLOSED
status. It should, as a minimum, explain who can close a bug (i.e. can an
external reporter close a bug) and under what circumstances you should
close a bug.
For mozilla, someone may resolve a bug I reported. I then download the
latest version and test whether the bug has really been fixed. If it has
been fixed, I mark it VERIFIED. RH doesn't have a VERIFIED status. Is the
CLOSED status an equivalent?
Okay, I have added a description to the bug_status.cgi page to explain the
nature of the CLOSED status a little better. This is status has been debated
within Red Hat for some time now and is actually rarely used. I may end up doing
away with it entirely but until that time I have put a description of what it
could be used for on the help page.
