There are 32 Component choices in the ticket system. We need to reduce the variety to make creating tickets simpler.

Fixing this problem might be easier if it coincides with updating the rtems.git repository layout, as that should simplify some of the logical components within the tree.

Then, outside the tree, we should stick to more abstract component names that are not tied to particular software products, e.g.

  • admin
  • build system
  • compilers

And then there should be components for the associated RTEMS Project products with publicly-supported repositories, such as

  • RTEMS Source Builder
  • RTEMS Testing
  • RTEMS Examples (easier if we merge all example repos together)
  • RTEMS Scheduler Simulator
  • etc.

While we may end up with still over a dozen components, they will be logically associated with a repository or a project service / dependency.

Is this ticket valid? Can it be closed?

On one hand, I think it is still valid to complain about the complexity of the ticket "Components" from a usability perspective, especially considering we don't use that feature to direct ticket assignment to the right maintainer.

On the other hand, it is probably not a big enough problem to really care about, since no one bothers to change it in 5 years.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
