Description

16 years ago
CGI.pl uses fixed strings for the UI, such as the prompt that it needs a 
legitimate e-mail address and password to continue, and the labeling of the E-
mail address and Password fields.  These should be templatized.

That page has been templatised in CVS, but there are still other text things in
there (mainly LDAP cruft)

Only LDAP cruft, in fact. However, according to recent newsgroup posts, LDAP
still works (surprisingly.) However, we do need to abstract out login into a
module of some sort.

The User Interface component now belongs to Gerv.  Reassigning all UNCONFIRMED
and NEW (but not ASSIGNED) bugs currently owned by Myk (the previous component
owner) to Gerv.

Reassigning back to Myk.  That stuff about Gerv taking over the User Interface
component turned out to be short-lived.  Please pardon our confusion, and I'm
very sorry about the spam.

The LDAP bits got moved in bug 180642. I don't see any other significant
hardcoded strings in CGI.pl. Closable?
One more unlocalised string remains:
"*** This bug has been confirmed by popular vote. ***"

All 2.18 bugs that haven't been touched in over 60 days and aren't flagged as
blockers are getting pushed out to 2.20

This bug has not been touched by its owner in over six months, even though it is
targeted to 2.20, for which the freeze is 10 days away. Unsetting the target
milestone, on the assumption that nobody is actually working on it or has any
plans to soon.

If you are the owner, and you plan to work on the bug, please give it a real
target milestone. If you are the owner, and you do *not* plan to work on it,
please reassign it to nobody@bugzilla.org or a .bugs component owner. If you are
*anybody*, and you get this comment, and *you* plan to work on the bug, please
reassign it to yourself if you have the ability.

This string is now in Bug.pm. Moreover, CGI.pl is soon dead.
