Ticket system guidelines

The aim of the JOSM ticket system is to report bugs, suggest enhancements/improvements or submit patches regarding JOSM and its plugins.

  • Everyone (even anonymous) is allowed to create tickets, comment on tickets and add attachments.
  • Bug reports should be created by using the JOSM internal feature Help -> Report Bug.
  • Don't set the milestone, this is permitted to JOSM core developers only.
  • Don't reopen or comment resolved tickets of previous milestones or any old closed tickets. Create a new ticket instead and reference related previous tickets.

The meaning of some fields of a ticket

  • Version:
    • tested - the bug is present in the current tested version of JOSM
    • latest - the bug is present in the current latest version of JOSM
    • Set to the version used for the report, always update first to the most recent one of either latest or tested.
  • Priority:
    • blocker - JOSM doesn't work at all for a majority of users
    • critical - a large number of users is affected (we're getting a lot of duplicate reports), usually results in a hotfix and manual latest compilation
    • major - more important issue affecting a group of users
    • normal - default priority, used for most tickets
    • minor - minor easy solvable issues or changes with very little benefit
    • trivial - e.g. little typos (except in osm keys or values)
