Tags and Prefixes


Each new Story created shall be marked with Tags. We are using Tags to:

  • Show what kind of a Story it is - a Bug, a Feature, etc...
  • Show what release the Story is targeted to: stx.2018.08, stx.2018.11, etc... See the TBD section for more info on our Release plans
  • Show which sub-project of Starling is responsible for completing the Story. See the TBD section for more info on the project's sub-projects

Tagging new stories is mandatory to enable efficient management of the large number of stories we are creating

To make it easier to visually identify categories of work and to search on them, you can optionally add a prefix to the description for a Story. The following prefixes are defined:

    • [Bug]: A problem which impairs or prevents the functionality of StarlingX
    • [Enhancement]: An improvement or enhancement to the functionality of StartingX; typically smaller scope items
    • [Feature]: A new feature/functionality to be added to StarlingX. Ideally, the scope should fit within a release time-frame (ex: 3-6 months)
    • [Build]: Build tools, environment, repo organization, etc
    • [Process]: Process and project related work items
    • [Test]: Test/Validation related work items
    • [Doc]: Documentation related work items
    • [Upstreaming]: Work items that need to be pushed in the core openstack projects or other 3rd party repo's
    • [Help]: Request for assistance, questions
