Introduction

This document provides information on how to triage bugs for the Fedoraproject. Triaging is the name given for confirming, prioritizing, and organizing bug reports and is a good place for new contributors and/or contributors with limited programming abilities to help the Fedora project becoming a better distribution for everyone. Triaging is an incredibly important aspect of development that benefits users and developers alike.

Steps to Triage a Bug

This section lists the steps necessary in order to triage correctly. This guide aims to be concise, links in some sections will provide more information relevant to the particular step. The triage process can be essentially broken up into three parts, the first being "preparation" the second being "reproducing" the third being "prioritization".
