The level of impact of a ~bug can vary from blocking a whole functionality
or a feature usability bug. A bug should always be linked to a severity level.
Refer to our [severity levels](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#severity-labels)
Refer to our [severity levels](../CONTRIBUTING.md#severity-labels)
Whether the bug is also a regression or not, the triage process should start as soon as possible.
Ensure that the Engineering Manager and/or the Product Manager for the relative area is involved to prioritize the work as needed.

### Managing bugs
**Prioritization** We give higher priority to regressions that affected the last recent monthly release and the current release candidates.
**Prioritization:** We give higher priority to regressions which worked in the last recent monthly release and the current release candidates.
The two scenarios below can [bypass the exception request in the release process](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/release/docs/blob/master/general/exception-request/process.md#after-the-7th), where the affected regression version matches the current monthly release version.
* A regression which worked in the **Last monthly release**
* **Example:** In 11.0 we released a new `feature X` that is verified as working. Then in release 11.1 the feature no longer works, this is regression for 11.1. The issue should have the `regression:11.1` label.

1. Notify the respective Engineering Manager to evaluate the Severity and add a [Severity label](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#bug-severity-labels) and [Priority label](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#bug-priority-labels).

The counterpart Product Manager is included to weigh-in on prioritization as needed.
1. If the ~bug is a **regression**, determine the release that the regression affects and add the corresponding `regression:xx.x` label.
1. If the affected release version can't be determined, add the generic ~regression label for the time being.
1. If the ~bug is **NOT** a regression:
1. The Engineering Manager decides which milestone the bug will be fixed. The appropriate milestone is applied.

1. If the bug is a ~regression:
1. Determine the release that the regression affects. Add the corresponding `regression:xx.x` label. See **Prioritization** section above.
1. If the affected version `xx.x` in `regression:xx.x` is the **Current release**, schedule it for the current milestone as it should be fixed in the current milestone. Scope it with ~Deliverable.
1. If the affected version `xx.x` in `regression:xx.x` is older than the **Current release**
1. If the regression is an ~S1 severity, label the regression with the current milestone as it should be fixed in the current milestone. Scope it with ~"Next Patch Release" or ~Stretch.
1. If the regression is an ~S2, ~S3 or ~S4 severity, the regression may be scheduled for later milestones at the discretion of Engineering Manager and Product Manager.
1. If the affected version `xx.x` in `regression:xx.x` is the **current release**, schedule it for the current milestone as it should be fixed immediately.
1. This falls under regressions which worked in the last release and the current RCs. More detailed explanations in the **Prioritization** section above.
1. If the affected version `xx.x` in `regression:xx.x` is older than the **current release**
1. If the regression is an ~S1 severity, schedule it to be fixed in the current milestone. We would like to fix the highest severity regression as soon as we can.
