Re: Summoning designers upon bug reports


There are not many alternatives, I guess. Well, we could add some trusted guy to ~elementary-design and it'll be up to them mark those bugs as requiring designers' input.

 - for everyone else, everything stays as it is now

- there are non-designer people in ~elementary-design (and thus they receive mails who're not addressed to them)
 - only some trusted guys can mark bugs as requiring designers' input

I don't really know which one is better...

Hey guys,

as you have probably noticed, Launchpad no longer allows assigning a
team of which you are not a member of to bug reports, so we can no
longer use the established way of summoning designers upon bug

The current convention served two things: first, it generated an extra
email to the thread asking designers to have a look at the bug.
Second, it provided an overview of bugs requiring designer input at

As for a new convention, I guess bug tags will come in handy for
generating a list, and since they also generate an email about the tag
change (unless you disable it somewhere in LP settings), designers can
set up mail filters to separate those reports.

Any other ideas for a new convention?
