RTC Bug Introduced vs Pre-existing Defect

Jamie Schena (531521) | asked Apr 29 '15, 11:44 a.m.
We have pre-existing defects (that may have been introduced in a previous code drop) and then new defects that are created when developers are trying to fix that bug. Any suggestions as to how to differentiate between a bug that is introduced vs a new defect to fix a pre-existing issue (i.e. the issue has been around since the application was first developed)?

Hi Jamie,
You can simply create new attribute in defect indicating that it has been introduced by fix of another defect.

You can also create a new type based on defect and call it regression or something like that. I would likely go with Krysztof's suggestion to keep the numbers of types low though.
