  1. Deal with the issue (See also Incident response).
  2. Decide whether to write a lightweight or full-length report.
  3. Create a page for your report using one of the forms below.
    Lightweight report (template): <inputbox>
 type=create
 editintro=Incident response/Report editintro
 preload=Incident response/Lightweight report template
 default=
 placeholder=Enter service name...
 buttonlabel=Create report
 bgcolor=inherit
 break=no
 prefix=Incident documentation/20200924-

</inputbox>
Full-length report (template): <inputbox>

 type=create
 editintro=Incident response/Report editintro
 preload=Incident response/Full report template
 default=
 placeholder=Enter service name...
 buttonlabel=Create report
 bgcolor=inherit
 break=no
 prefix=Incident documentation/20200924-

</inputbox>

  1. Write up what happened, filling out the template. Use past incident reports for inspiration.
  2. Once done, change the status to "in-review", preferably within 7 days of the incident.
    Within 3 weeks the ONFIRE working group will get back to you with feedback.
    After the ONFIRE review and any updates to the report, set the status to "final" and notify the ops@ mailing list.
