(This may actually belong in mozilla.org/Bugzilla: Other moz.org Issues.) If I try and add myself to the CC list of a bug which depends on a bug that I am not authorized to access (e.g. bug 148522 which depends on bug 148520), I get an error saying "You are not authorized to access bug #148520." (or whatever the number of the restricted bug is). Steps to reproduce: 1. Got to bug 148522. 2. Try to add yourself to the CC list. Expected results: Get added to the CC list. Actual results: The following error appears: "You are not authorized to access bug #148520." (unless you are actually authorised to access bug 148520 in which case it presumably works). I tried adding myself to the CC list of two bugs to test this: bug 148522 (which depends on bug 148520) and bug 143047 (which depends on bug 125583) - I'm already on the CC list of the latter bug but I tried adding myself again and got the error. I assume that this issue would also prevent me from making other changes to a bug which depends on a restricted bug (though for obvious reasons I'm reluctant to experiment with this). I presume this bug was introduced in the upgrade to 2.17.
This would probably be because we try to resolve dependency aliases with the validation functions....
bbaetz, justdave, myk: can you remember who made this change? I would try and track it down, but it strikes me that whoever did it would find it really easy to fix. Gerv
I'm guessing that myk did it as part of the alias patch - I don't think that this is in CVS (although I have't tested)
This is fixed in the latest version of the patch on bug 99203.
