Toolchain WG Tags

draft r0b

The following tags are used in Launchpad by the Toolchain WG:

Tag

Description

Task related

task

a task to be done. Used to separate tasks and bugs

speed

will improve the speed of generated code

size

will reduce the size of generated code

Bug related

ftbfs

found when a program failed to build from source

ice

fault shows up through an internal compiler error

wrong-code

fault shows up through bad generated code

Proposed

work-around-avail

a work-around exists such as changing the optimisation level. Attached to the package itself

work-around-applied

the work-around has been applied to the package. This work around should be reverted when the toolchain is fixed. Attached to the package itself

Hardly ever used

testsuite

found in the products test suite

regression

a regression compared to upstream

wrong-code used to be bad-code.

ice, bad-code, and ftbfs give more information on a bug. ice is a specialisation of ftbfs.

Tags should align with those in GCC bugzilla and Ubuntu.

Some of the interesting combinations are:

  • 'not' task - a bug

  • task speed - a task that will improve the speed of generated code

  • task size - a task that will reduce the size of generated code

  • testsuite - a testsuite failure that exists upstream

  • testsuite regression - a testsuite regression compared to upstream

(where 'not' means this tag is missing)
