This has bugged me for a long time. If you visit any project issue page on Drupal.org you’ll find a bunch of different color-coded table rows.
What the heck do the colors mean!!!
It has always bothered me, but today I decided to finally dig in. This process wasn’t hard in any way, I just really wanted a key somewhere to understand the rationality behind the order. Below I present that.
|14||Reviewed & tested by the community||#f1ffe8|
|15||Patch (to be ported)||#f1ffe8|
|16||Postponed (maintainer needs more info)||#eff1fe|
|18||Closed (cannot reproduce)||#fddddd|
|5||Closed (won’t fix)||#eff1fe|
|6||Closed (works as designed)||#eff1fe|
- Generally speaking, green-like status represent done or mostly done things
- Yellow means a review is needed
- Blue-ish/purple-ish is “not going to fix” for many different reasons
- Red-ish is either fixed or confusingly, needs to be worked on (the latter has a different shade of red but it is hard to tell unless it is side-by-side with the former)
- Grey is an active bug
To be clear, this isn’t a judgment of any of the statuses, this is just a key which I needed.
