Discussion on: The zero bug policy

I really like the idea of picking up the bugs when they are still fresh and to pick up the essential ones immediately.

But why not have a list of non-essential bugs just in case, it's a slow Friday afternoon.
I also think that non-essential bugs are nice stories for a new team member to pickup. A good way to get up to speed with the codebase.

And in the end all bugs are essential. How can there be a bug that never needs attention and can be discarded?

Yeah, I guess you can keep it out of your backlog itself but keep them on the s ide. So you have some nice-to-have improvements for indeed, those slow friday afternoons or new developers that can get their teeth into the codebase with some issues that are not so daunting.
