NetBeans 7.0 Bug Waiver Process

  • Issuezilla Keywords for NetBeans 7.0
  • 7.0_WAIVER_REQUEST - when asking for waiver (issues)
  • 7.0_WAIVER_APPROVED - when waiver was approved by team (issues)


High-priority bugs are subject to the release quality criteria. All exceptions must be waived by this process.


An engineer responsible for the waived bug is supposed to request a waiver :

  1. Add appropriate justification for the waiver in the issue description
  2. Mark the issue with the 7.0_WAIVER_REQUEST keyword
  3. Send a request to the nbdevATnetbeans.org alias. The request must include the following info:
  • the bug id and a short description
  • the justification for the waiver
  • a statement about user impact (e.g. how often the bug is likely to occur, behaviour after the problem occurs, impact on other features, etc.)
  • a workaround description (if available)
  • an estimation when and how the bug will be fixed
  1. Wait 48 hours for any objections :
  • If there are questions/objections, answer/resolve them as appropriate
  • No objections (or all of them have been addressed), change the keyword to 7.0_WAIVER_APPROVED.
  1. Work with Docs on documenting the waived bug in the release notes (if appropriate)
  2. If scheduling is an issue to address issue in current release, it should be addressed in a Patch. If so, mark the issue with status-whiteboard 70patch-candidate value.
