    Closed bugs still on my plate represent work

    • 2 Comments
    One of the more powerful aspects of our bug tracking is that bugs can be closed but still assigned to a person. This makes sense when you realize the database tracks these two pieces of data separately. A bug can be either Active or Closed, and Assigned...
