Hi all

Theres one ticket with disputed resolution
should this be set to "duplicate", to "fixed" or to "inavlid"
or should i add a new resolution like "disputed" ?

Also if you know of other tickets that have incorrect statuses
resolutions, or other things please reply and list the ticket numbers
so they can be corrected.

And maybe above all I would suggest everyone to try to act friendly
toward each other on the tracker. If you disagree about what someone
else set the status or other things there, dont just jump on it and
change it without comment and discussion.
Try to talk with the other person and find a consens and or ask a 3rd
party about his oppinion first.
Also, all help is welcome in maintaining the tickets on the tracker
If you see something that feels rude or alienating, please improve it
Someone closed a ticket with no comment and you have a nice comment in
mind? Please add that comment
You see a question for information that you belive is not needed for
fixing a bug. Dont hesitate to reply and state that you would like to
work on the bug and dont need that information.
None of these are intended to be rules, just my personal oppinon.

For many of us the tracker is just a technical notepad that stores
some information but some people take changes to tickets they care
about quite personal it seems


PS: if you want to work on something on trac and lack permissions to
do it, mail me.
