Bugzilla: Reassign a bug report

Questions should be directed to Web Development, it-webdev@udel.edu

Each bug report includes a field for Assigned To. This is the person who needs to act on the bug. When a new bug is created, the default is for it to be assigned to an IT-WD programmer. A bug will be assigned to you for testing, approval, comments, or if some other action is needed. If you have completed your action on a bug, or if a bug was assigned to you in error, then you will need to reassign the bug.

Tip: If you add comments to a bug, but do not reassign it to an IT-WD programmer, then he may not recognize that he needs to act on the bug. This could cause a significant delay for your project. IT-WD programmers and web developers are managing multiple bugs, so their attention is focused on the bugs assigned to them.
