Re: What happened to our Triage wiki page?

I ended up putting the priority guidelines into the main GettingInvolved page, rather than having a separate 
Triage page:

I haven't found the tags (backup, restore, etc) very helpful, so I dropped that part.

Oh yes! I was doing some wiki updating and cleaning and deleted that 
page. As I recall, it had “how to get debug info” steps that are on 
launchpad’s bug form anyway, and guidance on how to set bug importance 
levels, that I figured was too rigid maybe?
I always took that as a basic guide which I normally followed unless 
something specific to a certain bug did justify deviations.

So I thought in the moment that the page wasn’t super useful. But maybe that was hasty and the triage 
tips were good to have written down. I bet I can restore the page.

We can of course talk about changing that page and the triaging rules 
to your liking but having some triaging rules at all is very helpful. 
This could be something like "Use the triaging rules of Ubuntu" or 
Debian or <Add your favorite project here>. But our rules differed from 
the ones of Ubuntu for good reasons. Ubuntus triaging rules are not 
only weighting the impact of the bug, but also the impact of the 
package as well which reduces the amount of information you get within 
one package as the importance of the package induces a tendency for all 
the bugs of one package (higher importance up to high in our case as we 
are a core package).

Ah that page also had a section about tags. Should we still use these 
tags? Should we add tags e.g. for bugs duplicated in Launchpad/Gitlab?

The page in question can be found in the WaybackMachine:
