Re: Release-critical bugs, and #97671

The Technical Committee has passed the following resolution, regarding
the dispute surrounding Bug#97671 and the proper use of the Severity
tag and other BTS features:

   We note that

   * This dispute contains both technical and process (ie political)
     elements; however, it has not been possible to identify a clear
     technical dispute which as at the heart of the problem.
   * The heart of the problem seems to be a disagreement over the proper
     use of various tagging features of the bug tracking system.  This
     is a process matter.
   * We do not feel that this decision is within our normal remit; the
     constitution suggests that the project leader and delegates would
     be responsible.
   * The bug system administrators would seem to be the most relevant
   * We are not sufficiently united in our opinions that we feel that
     the Committee should issue any formal advice or opinion.
   * Should a disputed technical question be raised, we would be happy
     to answer it.

   We therefore recommend that

   * The bug system administrators and/or the project leader or some
     other delegates appointed by the project leader decide on the
     proper use of the bug system features.

As Chairman, I shall arrange for this decision to be appropriately
documented and work out the disposition of the bug report.

Thanks for your attention,
