This is a blog where I (Ajay Balamurugadas) write about my experiences with SOFTWARE, testing software, enjoying defects in software and my learnings in software testing :)
Hi Ajay,respect for posting that little snippet.It looks like some "conversation" in our TFS (bug tracking) system as well. :-)I try to keep it "neutral" in my wording and description.Sometimes its hard and my blood pressure goes up.I go and have a coffee and calm myself.Especially words like "miracle" etc. tend to have a sarcastic undertone; especially in writing, where face-to-face mimic can't be seen.Depends on the relation with the Dev, I assume.Other than that, I still can't interprete, if there was a real fix or if just the status was changed to "fixed". :-)Brings back memory of the twitter discussion "What are the reasons dev say its fixed, when it is not?" (or similiar).Cheers,MaikNog
Face-to-face communication allows (re)solving problems like this in most of the cases. Do you have a chance for that?If not, why?
@Maik: Thanks for commenting. I have two concerns with such comments on bug tracker. 1. The problem can be solved in private easily.2. They don't seem to care that this can be tracked & their reputation is affected.My question to them is: Are they aware that this is not a private chat?Yes, and relation with dev matters. :) @SzaLaci:Great point. We do have face to face communication option & that makes me think even more. Even where is such an option, why are they using such a public platform? If they have a problem between them, there are other ways to solve it than to go public this way :)Regards,Ajay
