  • Summary: How would you describe the bug, in approximately 60 or fewer characters?
  • A good summary should quickly and uniquely identify a bug report. Otherwise, developers cannot meaningfully query by bug summary, and will often fail to pay attention to your bug report when reviewing a 10 page bug list.
