Bug reports

You can open bug reports here (issues, enhancements, ideas etc.).

Documentation / Code

Using GitHub fork/pull-request feature, you may send us some fixes or enhancements.

Please, do explain:

  • what you are fixing (issue number if available);
  • how you did it.

Pull requests

The best way to propose a change on the documentation or the code is to create a GitHub pull request.

Your pull request should always been against the master branch and not against stable which is the stable branch!

  1. Create a branch for your work
  2. Create a pull request for this branch against the master branch
  3. Push into the branch until the pull request is ready to merge
  4. Avoid unnecessary merges: keep you branch up to date by regularly rebasing git rebase origin/master
  5. When ready to merge, clean up the history (reorder commits, squash some of them together, rephrase messages): git rebase -i origin/master

Issue triage

Labels

Type

  • bug
  • cleanup: should be taken care of to avoid technical debt
  • enhancement
  • meta: points to other issues and is used to manage long term goals (similar but orthogonal to milestones)
  • question

All issues MUST have one of this label!

Difficulty

This helps new people to contribute.

  1. easy
  2. medium

Component

  • backup
  • GUI
  • upstream: not a XO issue → link to the upstream issue and monitor progress

Severity

  1. low: will be fixed when possible
  2. medium
  3. high: should be fixed for the next release
  4. critical: should be fixed ASAP and a patch release is done once fixed

A new version MUST NOT be released with a high or critical issue.

Status

For all issues:

  • duplicate: issue is a duplicate → SHOULD be closed
  • in progress: issue has been assigned and some work is going on

For bugs:

  • confirmed: bug is confirmed → SHOULD be assigned to someone
  • invalid: bug cannot be confirmed → SHOULD be closed

For enhancements:

  • draft: proposal is not finished and work should not be started yet
  • wontfix: not a real enhancement → SHOULD be closed
