In the context of my office environment (a tech giant), I often see folks using the word triage as a substitute for debugging an issue. Statements like
We are still triaging the issue...
is quotidian practice on the part of managers and
I am triaging this...
As per definition of the word, it means "assigning priority to a task". The very fact that the leads have assigned a task to engineers does imply that it's priority has been gauged and somebody has been set upon to debug it further.
Is this an Indianism or is there some other meaning of the term that is being used here?
EDIT: To clarify, I'm aware of the meaning of the word triage in the medical and military context. I also do understand that it's a popular term in bug management. My question, as @Kace36 aptly captures, is whether the word should be applied to the entire phase of determining the root cause of a bug and debugging it, or should it just refer to the step of assignment of a priority to it (probably with the added step of determining when to fix it) and is this habit a quirk of the Indian vernacular?
