I filed a bug report. Eventually I was asked to test the new version. I was slow in responding. Now the bug report is expired. It's still a problem. Do I just file a new bug report, or is there something else I should do?

  • where did you report that bug? – Alexandre Jan 21 '12 at 20:02
  • I reported the bug in launchpad. ( Bug #743832 ). The bug expired because I didn't respond in time. – stevem Jan 22 '12 at 5:37
  • I found your bug report: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-bluetooth/+bug/743832. This answers my question: "What happens to expired bug reports? Are they deleted or do they stick around for later viewing?" A: they stick around for later viewing. Good! – Gabriel Staples Jul 13 '18 at 8:22

I don't see a reason to report a new bug.

As described in that bug report, you should perform further tests, post the results and then you can change its status. I suggest you use New if the bug persists or Invalid if it has been fixed in new Ubuntu release.
