I refuse to look at bug aging. I'm not on enough medication to see the results.
Why has bug# 8, a high priority/critical bug been untouched for oh these many years? Why does the one about the link to "Report Problems" going to the wrong email address go unfixed for just as long?
I guess the answer to the first questions might be that fixing these bugs would have taken time away from developing the partial replacement application that is almost a year late. The answer to the second question is obvious to any cynic.
If we really knew how to, and cared about, bug aging then we'd have one more important thing to ignore.
I'm to go back to testing web pages without specs and shove some mint green wasabi up my nose to make me feel better.
Rich -- language issues aside, I am very confused. First, I must agree with Jake...seems about as straightforward as possible...how many days ago did we find it, that is it's age...anything else is black magic hoodoo. But even more confusing was the formula you found...what the heck does number of defects have to do with any given defects age?
