Bug Triage Guidelines
For the most part, standard triage rules apply. There are several special-case issues which have different handling processes, however, detailed below.
Common issues seen in triage are:
- upgrade fails due to feature being set in conf that is no more supported
- install fails due to other mysql running on port e.g out of archive
For these we tag triage bugs in mysql. Those represent the most common cases and if you think you found one you already heard of you might check there and either copy the reply or dup to them as applicable.
