Ubuntu – What does “Fix Committed” mean


Is it valid if I mark a bug "Fix Committed" if the package in question is hosted upstream (outside of Launchpad)?

example: bug report, committed fix.

  • You can find a list of Launchpad bug status definitions the way they are used in the Ubuntu bug tracker at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Status. Normally, for Ubuntu package tasks, "Fix Committed" doesn't correspond to "the fix is upstream but not in Ubuntu yet"; for that you can usually just set a bug watch and let Launchpad deal with it, as Jorge suggested.

    Note that some Ubuntu teams assign different roles to certain Launchpad functions, including bug status; this can initially cause some confusion. If you're consistently triaging bugs in a particular component, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the way the team responsible for that component does bug triage.
