Re: Summoning designers upon bug reports


I think the best and easiest way would be just to use the tagging system,
like Sergey said, if that does what i think it does :)
I don't think it's a good idea to have one person everyone has to go to to
ask if he maybe could assign the bug to elementary-design, such a process
will take far longer than just tagging a bug, and also depending on one
person for something like this is always a bit tricky on the open source
community :)

I also think asking anyone (not just one person) from the elementery-design
team to mark a bug for designer input by elementary-design would still be a
tedious process, because you still have the second person who needs to do
some actions. It would be far easier to just tag the bug by the person who
thinks the bug needs designer input.
