     10=== Entering New Tickets ===
    911
    1012When a new ticket is created, the milestone will default to the milestone
     
    1618These default values are defined by the ACPI project manager.
    1719
    18 When submitting a ticket, reporters should override these values if
    19 needed.
     20When submitting a ticket, reporters should override these values if needed.
    2021
    2122A well written ticket will contain sufficient information so that the
    2223developer can respond to the ticket without the need to request additional
    2324data.  Reporters should attempt to make this happen.

     29=== Responding to Tickets assigned to the Feedback Milestone ===
     30
     31If your ticket has been moved to the Feedback Pending milestone, the developer needs you to take some action.
     32It is your responsibility to do this and respond the the ticket.
     33When you respond to the ticket, try to remember to reassign the ticket to the current milestone.
     34This will help ensure that the developer is aware of your response.
     35
     36If you questions of any kind about the status of your ticket, add a note to the ticket.
     37This note will be seen by ACPI project management.

     41=== Handling New Tickets ===

    2743Developers should review and respond to new tickets within 1 or 2 working days.
    2844As always, sooner is better.

     46When the ticket is reviewed, developers should change the ticket status to assigned.

    3348Developers should correct the milestone and version fields, as needed.
     
    3651developer should point the reporter to
    3752http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/wiki/WikiStart#SubmittingTickets and
    38 http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=logs.
     53http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=logs and
     54move the ticket to the [http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/milestone/Feedback%20pending
     55Feedback Pending milestone].
    3956
    40 == Displaying Tickets Requiring Developer Attention ==
     57If the developer needed additional information from the reporter, add a note the the ticket and move the ticket to the [http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/milestone/Feedback%20pending
     58Feedback Pending milestone].
     59
     60=== Displaying Tickets Requiring Developer Attention ===
    4161
    4262To display the list of the tickets that need attention, click on the roadmap link,
     
    4666will provide one-click access to this ticket list.
    4767
    48 The developers may choose to ignore tickets not displayed on this list.
     68In general, developers should ignore tickets not displayed on this list.
    4969
    50 If a reporter believes a ticket has been incorrectly assigned, add a note to
    51 the ticket explaining why.  This note will be seen by ACPI project
    52 management.
     70=== Using the Feedback Pending Milestone ===
    5371
    54 == Using the Feedback Milestone ==
     72The purpose of the [http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/milestone/Feedback%20pending
     73Feedback Pending milestone] is that tickets that are awaiting a response from the reporter
     74out of the developers current work list.
    5575
    56 If the reporter fails to supply requested data in a reasonable period of time,
    57 reassign the ticket to the [http://svn.netlabs.org/acpi/milestone/Feedback%20pending
    58 Feedback Pending milestone].
     76In general, once a ticket is moved to Feedback Pending milestone, the developer should
     77ignore the ticket until the reporter to supplies the requested information.
    5978
    60 A reasonable period of time is probably 5 working days.  This helps avoid
    61 cluttering up the list of tickets requiring developer attention with tickets
    62 where the developer is waiting for the reporter.  It also generates ticket
    63 e-mail to the reporter reminding the reporter that we are waiting for them.
    64 
    65 In general, once a ticket is moved to Feedback Pending milestone, it will be
    66 ignored by the developers.
    67 
    68 == Responding to Tickets assigned to the Feedback Milestone ==
    69 
    70 If you are a reporter responding to a ticket assigned to the Feedback
    71 milestone, try to remember to reassign the ticket to the current milestone.
    72 This will help ensure that the developer is aware of the response.

    96103open.  If desired, move the ticket to a future milestone.  This will take
