Death of the Tracker, Birth of the Issue!

Recommended Posts

Afternoon all!

 

I would like to inform all users that the Bug Tracker on our forum will no longer accept new reports. We will in stead make use of Github's "Issue" platform. All reports can still be replied to by members and devs, but no new bug reports can be created.

 

The change stems from compatibility testing IPS 4.0.0 Beta over the last few days, which has provided mixed results. IPBWiki will also be adversely affected by the upgrade which will occur within the next few months.

 

Issues are much like the bug reports on the rA forums, but similar in design to Pull Requests (except commits) for the actual interface. Issues can be seen here or by clicking "Issues" on the right-side menu when viewing the main repo.

This also calls for new bbcode, similar to the current git, hash and pull tags, this translates to: Issue:#97



[issue=97]


 

 

For those interested in the inner-workings of Issues, you can read the Github Guide to find out what it's capable of and how the Issues platform integrates with Commits and Pull Requests.

How will normal and newbie users like me report about bugs?

Why are you removing cathegorizations (sorted bugs via cathehories)?

 

Where i need to post about bugs founded in rA?

What will be happened with 100500 NOT FIXED YET bugs?

Are we all will duplicate them? For what? Where is reason?

 

Can anyone explain for me:

  1. What we are all win with this new bug reports system?
  2. How newbies like me will report about bugs?
  3. What will be happened with unresolved yet bugs since 2008?

As Akkarin said, the reason we are switching over the Github is because it links a lot better with the other tools of Github, the new forum won't support the IP.Tracker anymore, and many more great uses. People can easily submit bugs the way just like they do on the forum (bug with a Github username). All bugs will be displayed in the main form and will be labeled based on what type of bug it is along with the severity of the bug.

 

All bugs that are currently on the forum will be kept for archive purposes. We are taking action to close or mark those bugs that are open still with no status yet.

Personally I never use the bug tracker. Although, imo, is better this way. I prefer an extension of the current GIT since most people involved in the code and scripts should be the people I'd prefer to report a bug there.

The bug tracker was more like a support area before. That was wrong.

Players and server owners should use the Issue Tracker, though! We need help knowing which issues are there. So use it as much as possible (but only for real bugs, not for support questions).
