---+!! Life Cycle of a Patch %TOC% ---++ States of [[GnatsGlossary#ProblemReport][Problem Reports]] Each [[GnatsGlossary#ProblemReport][PR]] goes through a defined series of states between origination and closure. By default, the originator of a [[GnatsGlossary#ProblemReport][PR]] and all addresses listed in the [[GnatsNotifyList][Notify-List]] receive notification automatically of any state changes. In our configuration, the following states are used: open:: The initial state of a Problem Report. This means the PR has been filed and the responsible person(s) notified. analyzed:: The responsible person has analyzed the problem. The analysis should contain a preliminary evaluation of the problem and an estimate of the amount of time and resources necessary to solve the problem. It should also suggest possible workarounds. feedback:: This state is used in several cases: * [In case of bug reports ] %BR% The problem has been solved, and the originator has been given a patch or other fix. * [In case of patch submissions] %BR% A submitted patch is not clear, or does not apply cleanly, or results in discussions on the mailing list, or otherwise requires feedback from the originator. closed:: A Problem Report is closed ("the bug stops here") only when any patches or changes have been integrated, documented, and tested, and the submitter has confirmed the solution. suspended:: Work on the problem has been postponed. This happens if a timely solution is not possible or is not cost-effective at the present time. The PR continues to exist, though a solution is not being actively sought. %BR% If the problem cannot be solved at all, it should be closed rather than suspended.
