The status of an RFE depends on:
To determine the status of an RFE, use the following definitions:
Submitted: The RFE submitter will automatically be notified by email when the request has been submitted. IBM has not yet evaluated this RFE and plans to provide an update within 30 days of submission.
Under consideration: The IBM team is evaluating this RFE. A decision or request for more information will be provided within 90 days.
Planned for Future Release: This request is a candidate for a future generally available (GA) release. IBM's statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at IBM's sole discretion. IBM will update this request to reflect any changes.
Delivered: This request has been delivered into a previously released version of the product, or imminently in the next available release.
Uncommitted Candidate: This request may not be delivered within the release currently under development, but the theme is aligned with the current multi-year strategy. IBM may consider and evaluate any RFE Community feedback for this request through activities such as voting. IBM will update this request in the future.
Rejected: IBM has evaluated the request, and has determined that it can not be implemented at this time or does not align with the current multi-year strategy. This request may be resubmitted for consideration after 18 months from the date of submission. The RFE submitter will automatically be notified by email when the RFE qualifies for reconsideration and resubmission.
Need More Information: The RFE submitter will automatically be notified by email when the request requires additional information. IBM is requesting more information from the submitter before the evaluation of the request can be completed. This request will remain open in this status for 30 days, but if the submitter doesn't respond, the request may be closed with status of 'Information Not Provided' (see definition).
Information Provided: The submitter has provided additional information, to assist IBM in evaluating the request.
Information not Provided: IBM had previously requested more clarifying information. Because the additional information was not provided within 30 days, the request has been closed.
Is a Defect: IBM has identified this as a defect requiring a code change to resolve. The RFE has been closed and will be tracked via APAR management. The APAR number will be provided on the RFE, and made available when closed via Lotus Support Search, Rational Support Search or Tivoli Support Search.
Targeted for Open Source Code: IBM has determined this feature would need to be developed within the Open Source Community and further tracking of the request should be done in the applicable system (i.e. Bugzilla or other).
Duplicate: IBM has identified the RFE as a duplicate of another RFE already posted to this community. Please refer to the linked "duplicate of" RFE record for information on this request.
