My team has received a request for customer to change the background color in some parts of a legacy app we are upgrading. It is important for the customer to have all change requests properly sorted out to: Legacy Bug, New Feature Bug or New Feature, so that they can easily create a report for release that will show a list of fixed bugs from the legacy app and separately a list of new features that were added. And to be able to ignore the list of fixed bugs that were came up during new feature implementation.
So how do you treat such requests in your projects? Specially in cases where you have a legacy app to fix/improve meaning you don’t have a feature request to link this change to. Do such requests maybe fall in a different category?
