has exactly the same
"Severity" options as B.O.O.
in addition to those above provides "Blocker" &
has same selections as B.M.O.
also has same selections as B.M.O.
includes "Blocker" & "Enhancement" but not
has "Wishlist" rather than "Enhancement"
The problem with this is 95% of feature requests
don't belong in
openSUSE trackers in the first place, if you have a feature request for
part of gnome, kde or firefox for example you are much better off
creating the request in there bug tracker then ours. Because it is much
more likely that the upstream developers rather then the openSUSE
The overwhelming majority of feature requests belong upstream....
But, there is a significant difference between choosing among multiple trackers
to search and/or request within the distro, and whether the request belongs in
an upstream tracker or forum.
IMO, openSUSE is generally over-compartmentalized. e.g., not only multiple
trackers, but large number of mailing lists causing difficulty choosing where to
post, or search for existing, very particularly the complaints/noise caused by
those announcing errant choices.
I am glad to see the announcement of intent to retire "inactive" lists.
