bug tracking system

(programming)
(BTS) A system for receiving and filing bugs reported against a software project, and tracking those bugs until they are fixed. Most major software projects have their own BTS, the source code of which is often available for use by other projects.

Well known BTSs include GNATS, Bugzilla, and Debbugs.

Generator BM: Bugtracker IDs Mentioned in Commit Messages.
Generator CM: Commit IDs Mentioned in Bugtracker Entries.
The union of these two datasets of candidate bugfix links (from commit messages and from bugtracker entry comments) form the basis for the subsequent filtering steps.
It makes no sense to assume that a commit C made at time t(C) references a bugtracker entry B that was created only at a later time tc(B), because the author of the commit message would not be able to reliably predict the ID of that later entry; such a bugfix link violates causality.
(3) If the time difference is only small, it might be due to a misalignment between the bugtracker server clock and the version archive server clock.
If a commit C is referenced from a Bugtracker entry B at all, we would expect that reference to appear shortly after the commit: usually only minutes later, possibly hours, or potentially the next day, but probably not later than that because the developer would simply forget to add it.
However, as there are tens of thousands of commits and thousands of bugtracker entries, it is unlikely that a spurious bugfix link from, for example, commit C to bugtracker entry B, has an also spurious counterpart in B accidentally pointing to C.
Unless it is common in the development organization to mention commit IDs in bugtracker comments, the rule will be far too strict and will result in extremely low recall.

As a result, animation pioneers (Softimage and Discreet), leading videogame developers (Electronic Arts, Eidos, and A2M), high-tech business service providers (BugTracker and Toon Boom), professional associations (Alliance numeriQC and IGDA), and research centers (Society for Arts and Technology) have all made their home in Montreal.
VideoLAN also took to Twitter to talk about the matter, and wrote "a reporter, opened a bug on our bugtracker, which is outside of the reporting policy, aka, mail us in private on the security alias." They further added, "the reporter is using Ubuntu 18.04, which is an old version of Ubuntu, and clearly has not all the updated libraries." You can check their official statements in the thread mentioned below.
