Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS)¶
You can import tasks from the Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS) using
bts service name. Debian’s bugs are public and no authentication
information is required by bugwarrior for this service.
You will need to install the following additional packages via
If you have installed the Debian package for bugwarrior, this dependency will already be satisfied.
Here’s an example of a Debian BTS target:
[debian_bts] service = bts bts.email = firstname.lastname@example.org
The above example is the minimum required to import issues from the Debian BTS. You can also feel free to use any of the configuration options described in Common Service Configuration Options or described in Service Features below.
Include all bugs for packages¶
If you would like more bugs than just those you are the owner of, you can specify
For example if you wanted to include bugs on the
hello package, you can add
this line to your service configuration:
bts.packages = hello
More packages can be specified seperated by commas.
Ultimate Debian Database (UDD) Bugs Search¶
If you maintain a large number of packages and you wish to include bugs from all packages where you are listed as a Maintainer or an Uploader in the Debian archive, you can enable the use of the UDD Bugs Search.
This will peform a search and include the bugs from the result. To enable this feature, you can add this line to your service configuration:
bts.udd = True
Excluding bugs marked pending¶
Debian bugs are not considered closed until the fixed package is present in the Debian archive. Bugs do cease to be outstanding tasks however as soon as you have completed the work, and so it can be useful to exclude bugs that you have marked with the pending tag in the BTS.
This is the default behaviour, but if you feel you would like to include bugs that are marked as pending in the BTS, you can disable this by adding this line to your service configuration:
bts.ignore_pending = False
Excluding sponsored and NMU’d packages¶
If you maintain an even larger number of packages, you may wish to exclude some packages.
You can exclude packages that you have sponsored or have uploaded as a non-maintainer upload or team upload by adding the following line to your service configuration:
bts.udd_ignore_sponsor = True
This will only affect the bugs returned by the UDD bugs search service and will not exclude bugs that are discovered due to ownership or due to packages explicitly specified in the service configuration.
Excluding packages explicitly¶
If you would like to exclude a particularly noisy package, that is perhaps team maintained, or a package that you have orphaned and no longer have interest in but are still listed as Maintainer or Uploader in stable suites, you can explicitly ignore bugs based on their binary or source package names. To do this add one of the following lines to your service configuration:
bts.ignore_pkg = hello,anarchism bts.ignore_src = linux
src: prefix that is commonly seen in the Debian BTS interface
is not required when specifying source packages to exclude.
