thank you that you raised this important discussion and added section @Test
and report bug.
>From my side I want notice, that we have many unclear bugs and sometimes is
very hard to verify such bugs.
The awesome example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/fuel/+bug/1357298
there are many questions about verification:
- configuration
- env/iso version
- why this option @haven't be used here
- where is it should be
and so on.

Discussion about issue template you can find in community @[openstack-dev] [
QA] Proposal: A launchpad bug description template
will be great if we will use such template in our launchpad at least as
good practice while it are integrating in community.

Thank you,
