A while ago a blogged that we're in a stage of bug triage, and I go tothe triage meetings. Sometimes I lobby hard to fix certain bugs, andother times I do not. I do try to balance business value with the costto IBM to fix a bug. Now in my case, most of these bugs are usabilitybugs.
Andlet me assure you, I and the Design team are constantly educating thedevelopers and advocating that "usability bugs are real bugs." And by and large, the Notes development and QE team has got the messageand usability bugs are treated as real bugs.
When a bug ismarked as NPTF it means "no plans to fix in this codestream". And thedefinition of "this codestream" is a bit fizzy (At least to me). Itmight mean, say, not going to be fixed in 8.5. OR it might mean it willnto get fixed in any 8.x or 8.x.x release. However, if enough customersenter PMRs, we will re-open any bug, definitely.
Here's onethat is not going to get fixed in Notes 8.5. When you do a Googlesearch and hit enter the focus is on the address bar and not the view
Since no customer (that I am aware of) has reported this as aproblem in 8.0 or 8.0.1, I got overruled for fixing it in 8.5.
