[Libreoffice-qa] Proposal for Hard Hacks

Hi Everyone,

Michael came up with an idea for hard hacks that I liked. Here is the

a) each QA "staff" member gets to nominate one bug to hard hacks at a time

b) that member monitors the bug occasionally and once it is fixed they can
put another one on the list

c) in order to track we could use the QA Contact Field since no one else
uses that field vs. whiteboard where anyone and everyone edits. We could
use it in one of two ways:
   - have a dedicated QA member that we assign to (one) and then that
basically tells the developers "this is a hard hack"
   - each individual member of QA puts their own name in there so then the
developers know who put the bug as a hard hack

I am also open to the idea of just adding a whiteboard status of HardHack.
Today at the conference call they had done all but 1 of them and asked for
more, I was unprepared to give more. We should try to keep that list
constantly at 5-7 bugs.

Probably something that we should discuss next week during our call but we
need to get a method down so that developers can tackle these bugs.

Best Regards,
