Process

  • creating rules for prefix usages, e.g. adding prefix [FEAT] to the LP bug title to denote new features or feature requests, adding prefix [FWTS-Live] for fwts-live related bugs etc.
  • revise bug reporting guideline to formally allow people file bugs against the FWTS project in LP directly

  • collect opinions about the release process from each release manager
