Ticket life cycle should include a Resolved status between new/assigned and closed
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I am using Trac version 0.11.1. This enhancement request is related to the status field of the enhancement. Currently a ticket can have new —> assigned —> closed —> reopened (and back to assigned) as a status work flow. Whenever a tester files a defect he adds a ticket with the status as new. The developer gets this defect assigned to himself and works on it. Whenever the fixing is done he directly closes the defect (marks the status as closed). In practice the tester should get a chance to verify the fix before the defect reaches a logical closure. So I propose to have an additional status as Resolved. The developer will change the status to resolved whenever (s)he has actually fixed the defect. The tester can then easily get the list of to-be-verified defects based on the 'Resolved' status and can close them out after verification (by marking the status as closed).
