@WG-prioritization/alerts issue #41078 has been requested for prioritization.

Procedure

Camelid (Oct 15 2020 at 03:06, on Zulip):

Perhaps P-medium?

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 03:12, on Zulip):

wow, people keep running into this

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 03:12, on Zulip):

same issue I think

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 03:12, on Zulip):

oh wait this is the original :laughing:

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 03:13, on Zulip):

yeah P-medium seems fine - it's confusing, but there's a workaround

Hameer Abbasi (Oct 15 2020 at 11:04, on Zulip):

I'd argue P-high, if it's tripping up newcomers it's probably hit fairly often.

Hameer Abbasi (Oct 15 2020 at 11:06, on Zulip):

Also to (indirectly) reduce people's workload on commenting on duplicate issues by fixing this.

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 12:24, on Zulip):

Hmm, fair enough. It doesn't seem like it will be fixed any time soon but I guess that shouldn't affect the prioritization.

apiraino (Oct 15 2020 at 12:46, on Zulip):

@Hameer Abbasi you make a good point. Although "worth" a medium, I'd vote to assign a P-high and have the team briefly discuss it (I'll try summarizing the issue history in the agenda)

apiraino (Oct 15 2020 at 12:47, on Zulip):

at the very least we have an evaluation about the effort to "fix" or "work around" to improve ergonomics

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 12:50, on Zulip):

can we instead use I-nominate if you think it's 'worth' a medium?

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 12:50, on Zulip):

I don't think we should change the priority just so it will be discussed at the weekly meeting

Hameer Abbasi (Oct 15 2020 at 12:53, on Zulip):

In my book there are two things that determine a bug's worth. Severity and frequency. This is a medium on the severity scale but fairly high on the frequency scale.

Joshua Nelson (Oct 15 2020 at 12:56, on Zulip):

right, and if we mark it P-high for that reason that's fine with me, but it shouldn't be so it's brought up at the weekly meeting, we have I-nominate for that

apiraino (Oct 15 2020 at 12:57, on Zulip):

I agree with Joshua, issue nomination is a better tool to discuss (my bad that I sometimes forget about it :sweat_smile: )

Hameer Abbasi (Oct 15 2020 at 12:59, on Zulip):

I agree with I-nominate P-medium too.

triagebot (Oct 15 2020 at 13:36, on Zulip):

Issue #41078's prioritization request has been removed.

apiraino (Oct 15 2020 at 19:55, on Zulip):

The issue wasnt discussed due to time constraints (I added it to the very last minute), so it will slip to next week
