Bug Triage on Launchpad

Can anyone point to a very good and easy to understand howto on bug triage in launchpad. I am looking at launchpad and sort of get the gist of things. But would like to read a good overview to make sure my assumptions are correct.



  • Can you reproduce a reported bug? If so, write up the steps to reproduce and confirm the issue exists for you.
    • If you can reproduce an issue, does it just affect Ubuntu MATE or can in be reproduced in stock Ubuntu or Xubuntu. Update the bug to include other affected flavours or state that it just affects Ubuntu MATE.
  • If you can’t reproduce the bug, can you try and get more information from the original reporter.
  • Is the bug a duplicate? If so, mark on bug as a duplicate of the other.
