Bugzilla is the bug tracking software the KDE community uses to handle the bug reports of their applications.
Our bugtracker is located at https://bugs.kde.org
Main screen of the bugtracker (default style):
Summary: Brief description of the bug
Product: Application or library which is being affected by the bug
Component: Specific component inside the product which is being affected by the bug
Version: Version of the application or library which shows the bug (Note: different products could have different policies about this field: it could represent the last version in which the bug is present, or the first version in which the bug appeared). This field defaults to "unspecified".
Priority: Priority of the bug report. It defaults to "NOR"(normal) and it must not be changed.
Severity: Type of bug:
Status: Status of the bug report:
Votes: Current number of votes the bug report has. Votes can be useful to confirm a bug (status changes from UNCONFIRMED to NEW).
Comments: The first comment is always the original description of the bug sent by the reporter. The other ones could be comments added by the same reporter or by any other user, a bug triager, or a developer.
Keywords: Special words which are used to mark special reports, in order to find them easily.
CC List: List of mail addresses (from reporters or contributors) who are tracking the bug report and who are going to get a mail notification about every change on it.
More information about bug report's life cycle and other fields can be found at https://bugs.kde.org/page.cgi?id=fields.html
