The classes file

This file lists the possible classes of Problem Reports. Each line consists of a class name, followed by a colon and an optional class type name (the class type name is not used for anything in the current implementation of GNATS, so it may be left blank. The class and class-type-name fields may only contain alphanumerics, -, _, and ., but no other characters.

Then comes another colon, followed by an optional one-line description of the class. GNATS itself does not use the class description, but external tools such as Gnatsweb and TkGnats may use it. Therefore, a line in this file should at least contain the following:

class::class description

Lines beginning with # will be ignored, and the first listed class is the default class for an incoming Problem Report.
