[sip-comm-dev] Observer rights on Issue tracking system


#1

Hi,

While fooling around with the issue tracking system I noticed several low
priority bugs, that I was able to check immediately (558 - About page text
getting out of the frame and 586 - a lack of vertical alignment in system
tray menu icons and text). I couldn't reproduce them, so I set them to
resolved... and here comes the question - do we, *observers*, have the
actual right to do that?

I can't remember finding anything on the matter in the documentation, so
excuse me if this has been discussed before!

Best regards,

Vladimir Vassilev

Well, we don't really expect someone to do this without first discussing
this here. The reason is that unless a user has filed the issue
themselves, and followed its progress it is likely that there's more to
it than what's in the tracker. For example I don't think that anyone has
worked on 586 so chances are that whatever the reason was for entering
the issue it is still there.

Besides, closing the issue is especially gratifying for the developer
that worked it out ... so you wouldn't want to be taking that away from
them unless you've discussed it first :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Emil

Hi,

Sorry again for acting before thinking. I'll apply the buddy system next
time, before doing something stupid one more time.

Don't beat yourself up. I realize this was buried quite deep in the docs
so no worries. I appreciate your enthusiasm, Vladimir, so keep it up!
