    1 FFmpeg's bug/feature request tracker manual
    2 =================================================
    3 
    4 Overview:
    5 ---------
    6 
    7 FFmpeg uses Trac for tracking issues, new issues and changes to
    8 existing issues can be done through a web interface.
    9 
   10 Issues can be different kinds of things we want to keep track of
   11 but that do not belong into the source tree itself. This includes
   12 bug reports, feature requests and license violations. We
   13 might add more items to this list in the future, so feel free to
   14 propose a new `type of issue' on the ffmpeg-devel mailing list if
   15 you feel it is worth tracking.
   16 
   17 It is possible to subscribe to individual issues by adding yourself to the
   18 Cc list or to subscribe to the ffmpeg-trac mailing list which receives
   19 a mail for every change to every issue.
   20 (the above does all work already after light testing)
   21 
   22 The subscription URL for the ffmpeg-trac list is:
   23 https://lists.ffmpeg.org/mailman/listinfo/ffmpeg-trac
   24 The URL of the webinterface of the tracker is:
   25 https://trac.ffmpeg.org
   26 
   27 Type:
   28 -----
   29 art
   30     Artwork such as photos, music, banners, and logos.
   31 
   32 bug / defect
   33     An error, flaw, mistake, failure, or fault in FFmpeg or libav* that
   34     prevents it from behaving as intended.
   35 
   36 feature request / enhancement
   37     Request of support for encoding or decoding of a new codec, container
   38     or variant.
   39     Request of support for more, less or plain different output or behavior
   40     where the current implementation cannot be considered wrong.
   41 
   42 license violation
   43     Ticket to keep track of (L)GPL violations of ffmpeg by others.
   44 
   45 sponsoring request
   46     Developer requests for hardware, software, specifications, money,
   47     refunds, etc.
   48 
   49 task
   50     A task/reminder such as setting up a FATE client, adding filters to
   51     Trac, etc.
   52 
   53 Priority:
   54 ---------
   55 critical
   56     Bugs about data loss and security issues.
   57     No feature request can be critical.
   58 
   59 important
   60     Bugs which make FFmpeg unusable for a significant number of users.
   61     Examples here might be completely broken MPEG-4 decoding or a build issue
   62     on Linux.
   63     While broken 4xm decoding or a broken OS/2 build would not be important,
   64     the separation to normal is somewhat fuzzy.
   65     For feature requests this priority would be used for things many people
   66     want.
   67     Regressions also should be marked as important, regressions are bugs that
   68     don't exist in a past revision or another branch.
   69 
   70 normal
   71    Default setting. Use this if the bug does not match the other
   72    priorities or if you are unsure of what priority to choose.
   73 
   74 minor
   75     Bugs about things like spelling errors, "mp2" instead of
   76     "mp3" being shown and such.
   77     Feature requests about things few people want or which do not make a big
   78     difference.
   79 
   80 wish
   81     Something that is desirable to have but that there is no urgency at
   82     all to implement, e.g. something completely cosmetic like a website
   83     restyle or a personalized doxy template or the FFmpeg logo.
   84     This priority is not valid for bugs.
   85 
   86 
   87 Status:
   88 -------
   89 new
   90     initial state
   91 
   92 open
   93     intermediate states
   94 
   95 closed
   96     final state
   97 
   98 
   99 Analyzed flag:
  100 --------------
  101 Bugs which have been analyzed and where it is understood what causes them
  102 and which exact chain of events triggers them. This analysis should be
  103 available as a message in the bug report.
  104 Note, do not change the status to analyzed without also providing a clear
  105 and understandable analysis.
  106 This state implicates that the bug either has been reproduced or that
  107 reproduction is not needed as the bug is already understood.
  108 
  109 
  110 Type/Status:
  111 ----------
  112 */new
  113     Initial state of new bugs and feature requests submitted by
  114     users.
  115 
  116 */open
  117     Issues which have been briefly looked at and which did not look outright
  118     invalid.
  119     This implicates that no real more detailed state applies yet. Conversely,
  120     the more detailed states below implicate that the issue has been briefly
  121     looked at.
  122 
  123 */closed/duplicate
  124     Bugs or feature requests which are duplicates.
  125     Note, if you mark something as duplicate, do not forget setting the
  126     superseder so bug reports are properly linked.
  127 
  128 */closed/invalid
  129     Bugs caused by user errors, random ineligible or otherwise nonsense stuff.
  130 
  131 */closed/needs_more_info
  132     Issues for which some information has been requested by the developers,
  133     but which has not been provided by anyone within reasonable time.
  134 
  135 
  136 bug/closed/fixed
  137     Bugs which have to the best of our knowledge been fixed.
  138 
  139 bug/closed/wontfix
  140     Bugs which we will not fix. Possible reasons include legality, high
  141     complexity for the sake of supporting obscure corner cases, speed loss
  142     for similarly esoteric purposes, et cetera.
  143     This also means that we would reject a patch.
  144     If we are just too lazy to fix a bug then the correct state is open
  145     and unassigned. Closed means that the case is closed which is not
  146     the case if we are just waiting for a patch.
  147 
  148 bug/closed/works_for_me
  149     Bugs for which sufficient information was provided to reproduce but
  150     reproduction failed - that is the code seems to work correctly to the
  151     best of our knowledge.
  152 
  153 feature_request/closed/fixed
  154     Feature requests which have been implemented.
  155 
  156 feature_request/closed/wontfix
  157     Feature requests which will not be implemented. The reasons here could
  158     be legal, philosophical or others.
  159 
  160 Note2, if you provide the requested info do not forget to remove the
  161 needs_more_info resolution.
