Issue Type

Definition for Sakai

Bug

An error in design or implementation which directly impedes a user from achieving their expected result.

Task

A new capability being added to Sakai.

Feature Request/Requirement

Contributed Patch

A community-contributed patch to a particular version of sakai. The origin of such issues may lie in Bugs or Feature Requests which Sakai has not yet evaluated for implementation. Under such circumstances a linked issue is generally created by cloning the orignal issue in order to track Sakai's work on the issue. [Use at your own risk!]

...

  • Issue is vetted for accuracy and completeness of information.
  • The issue is evaluated by the appropriate project team, just like a Feature Request or Requirement, for inclusion in a future release of Sakai.
    • In some cases, a Contributed Patch may run counter to the Sakai design and cannot be incoporated, and maybe marked as Won't Fix and an explanation as to why provided. In this case, the contributor of the Patch may choose to continue developing the patch for future versions of Sakai.
  • Until the patch is integrated in Sakai, the community encourages the contributor to be responsive to comments and feedback provided by other users of the patch and to continue to update the patch to current versions of Sakai.

Community

The Sakai community is encouraged to report issues, however, it should not consider posting issues in Jira as a primary destination for users of their own instance of Sakai to report issues. Rather, each organization running Sakai is expected to provide its own front-line support, which can post issues to Sakai's Jira on behalf of users, when the issue is deemed to affect Sakai and not just the local installation of Sakai.
