I like the 'affects-dev' idea but maybe it should say how it affects them -
productivity... "dev-productivity" maybe?
The productivity losses taking the form of of one or more of the following
(and almost certainly not exhaustive):
* Redundantly repeated investigation (because the cause and symptoms make
it non-obvious to find in the bug log).
* Interrupting developer workflow or requiring a low-productivity
* Impacting workflow efficiency, such as slow builds, tests, requiring
repeated test-infrastructure tear-up/set-up cycles etc.
This tag could mark issues that are bad things or good things for
dev-productivity, anything that improves productivity by better tooling or
It should be noted that such bugs do impact customers - it's just that the
impact is indirect, they get features and other fixes more slowly because
the team is repeatedly impacted by this bug.
