     113== The Bug Tracker == 
    113114 
     115The following are GHC-specific policies for using the Trac bug tracking system. 
     116 
     117 * When a bug is fixed, but the patch or patches still need to be merged to other branches, then 
     118   don't close the bug, just change its type from "bug" or "task" to "merge".  Also add a list of 
     119   patches to be merged, and which branch to merge to, as a comment. 
     120 
     121 * Milestones: we have milestones for each release, and three special milestones: 
     122   * An empty milestone field means the bug has not been triaged yet.  We don't yet know if the 
     123     ticket is a real, unique, issue.  Once this has been established, the ticket will be given 
     124     a milestone. 
     125   * '''Not GHC''' is for tickets that are not tied to a GHC release, because they are in libraries 
     126     or other software that is not released with GHC.  Bugs in the "extra libraries" typically fall 
     127     into this category. 
     128   * '''_|_''' is for tickets that have been triaged, but we don't plan to fix them for a particular 
     129     release.  This might be because the bug is low priority, or is simply too hard to fix right now.
