Little helper script

  • If you have fixed a bug, enclose it with <s></s> tags.
  • Ensure bugs are assigned to the right person (package maintainers do change sometimes).
  • Ensure bugs are in the right top-level project (Release Engineering, Pacman, etc.).
  • If fixes are provided for some bugs, please test and report them as fixed.


[AIF] There are lots of open bugs / feature request (2009-2012) for unmaintained AIF. What to do? close all as "Deferred" or keep open? Maybe document in some place, currently open tickets, then close them.
