Taskhandling inside this CWS

Attention: the CWS is already integrated and some info get redundant

Before writing a new Issue, please check if it not already exists: RPT Double Check

New Issue should contain:

  • summary should start with 'RPT: '
  • set keyword 'new_implementation'
  • default prio (prio 3)
  • default owner: OJ
  • no target (this is the default for new issues, so don't care for the moment)
  • "Version" should be the version you're testing f.e. "RPT 1.0.0"

one-click submission

If a task inside this cws has the target "2.3" it's a showstopper. Without a fix for this issue we can't release a final version. All issue with this target should fixed until 5.July 2007. (Feature Freeze)

A target "2.x" means that this issue should be fixed for the final release. However we can live with the issue for a first final release. This issue should then be fixed inthe first update.

Target "not determined" meas that this is an issue which should be fixed in the near future.

If an issue has no target "---" then the report designer i-Team has not yet decide what to do with this issue.
