[Libreoffice-qa] Bugzilla Whiteboard: Let's use wimpyCaps consistently

Hi all,

At the QA meeting today we discussed the importance of consistency in
the tags that we use in the Whiteboard on our bug reports. We decided
that to make things simple for both old and new contributors, it would
be best for QA to use 'wimpyCaps' for all of our tags.

Examples:
  bibisectRequest
  confirmed:4.1.3.2:ubuntu
  needAdvice
  perf
  possibleRegression

I know that the Design Team, and Dev Team (and perhaps some other)
have created specific tags for the whiteboard. If possible, we'd like
to standardize the format of all of these to use wimpyCaps.

We'd also like to be consistent when using tags referring to
particular file formats, replacing tags such as 'rtf_filter', 'odf',
and 'ooxml' with 'filter:xxx':

Examples:
  filter:ooxml
  filter:odf
  filter:docx
  filter:rtf

Thoughts?

Thanks,
--R

sounds good to me.
I have a question... why the whiteboard has no "drop down" list for tags  
like the "keywords" field has?
to keep the thing consistent it would be easier to select items in a list  
where they are in the proper format

Because that's how bugzilla was designed and we don't own the infra ;)
At some point we'll revisit whiteboard/keyword after we move to our own
bug tracker.


Best,
Joel
