    66   4. '''Create a ticket''': There are three types of ticket described
    67      in [wiki:TwistedDevelopment#FilingTickets the FilingTickets section of the TwistedDevelopment guide].
    68 
    69      They are duplicated here for convenience:
    70 
    71        '''Enhancements''':: are used for feature additions. These
    72        typically take the form of a new API or an expansion of an
    73        existing API. Enhancement tickets should clearly describe the
    74        desired feature. The more well specified a feature is, the more
    75        likely it is to be implemented (and importantly, the more likely
    76        it is that what is implemented will actually be what the reporter
    77        wanted!) and the easier it is to implement. Remember that the
    78        ticket is possibly the only persistent record of the feature
    79        request. If it is not self-contained and sufficiently detailed,
    80        then it will likely fail to communicate the reporter's idea,
    81        diminishing its value (possibly all the way down to zero).
    82 
    83        '''Defects''':: are used to track bugs in existing APIs. Defect
    84        tickets are easier to specify than enhancements. A defect should
    85        briefly describe the problem, but the bulk of the ticket should
    86        be a runnable program (ideally in the form of a unit test) which
    87        demonstrates the bug.
    88 
    89        '''Regressions''':: are similar to defects, but are for bugs
    90        which are introduced into APIs in newer releases of Twisted. Like
    91        defect tickets, regression tickets should have a runnable program
    92        attached to demonstrate the problem.
     66  4. '''Create a ticket''': Read
     67     [wiki:TwistedDevelopment#FilingTickets the FilingTickets section of the TwistedDevelopment guide] for details of the different
     68     ticket types and then visit the [/newticket New Ticket page].
