Re: [QA] To clone or not to clone ( a bug report ) that's the question...

Then the decision should be made through a channel of
packagers/maintainers/developers (or maybe their representatives, i.e.
FESCo), not in a QA meeting!

If maintainer decides not to participate and then finds him disliking
the end result then he got nobody else to blame but him self.

If you want maintainers to take the decision, a QA meeting is the wrong

If you and others think this decision should be in the hand of FESCo instead of QA then I would like FESCo to add this topic to their next meeting agenda and I truly
hope they can reach a satisfying result.

The QA meeting topic as I see it was just about counting the votes on the thread
and make that an official decision.

I also see that asking the maintainers for what they wanted was an error on my behalf.

Testers need training guidelines and policies to work by, a proper "work flow" and if the responses to every matter are going to be like this one I simply cut out the inefficient process.

I will write those guidelines policy and provide testers with a decent work flow.

Anyone that opposes anything in that guideline can than pick out questionable issues , make them to a topic on this
list or ask FESCo to address those issue(s) in their meetings.

There will be no time "pressure" matter since the guideline has already been written and made so debates can be stuck in infinite loop until the storage space on the mail server fills up..

When and if an actually satisfying result comes out of it, a person can simply log into the wiki and adjust the
the guidelines to that result..

With this approach testers will at least have something in their hand to work with
which will indeed improve the overall process of bug reporting.

Thank you for your time.
