Why do we need two tags and what are the differences.

and mean the same thing. It means that the proposition was accepted or that the bug was confirmed and that the fix or modification is on the way. At first, I thought that the was only for feature request but it seems that a lot of moderators are using it for bugs too.

Bug with planned :

Bug with reproduced :

Is it that some moderators are mistagging bugs or is one of the two tags futile ?


and mean the same thing

Nope, I don't agree. Here is how I see it:

  • means the bug was reproduced. Nothing less and nothing more. It does not mean the team is going to spend time fixing it. They might, or not.

  • means the team is planning to fix the bug or implement the feature request. Nothing more and nothing less... it might take few minutes, 6-8 weeks, or 6-8 years. :)

That said, we're all humans. Including the dev team... so sometimes they put status-planned tag and it's forgotten, sometimes it gets done but they forget to change to etc.

We can nudge the dev in comments, he might reply at some point. The key here is patience.

  • So sometimes, the team finds a bug but does not plan on fixing it. Good to know. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jan 6 '14 at 16:07

    @insertcleverxmasname yes indeed, if they find it too minor, like all the plural bugs (e.g. 1 answers) – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Jan 6 '14 at 16:10
  • @ShadowWizard Makes sense. Thanks ! – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jan 6 '14 at 16:11
