When I try to run the new general summary reports code from bug 12282, I get
taint checking errors:

gives me:

[Thu Sep 26 12:07:48 2002] query.cgi: Use of uninitialized value in
concatenation (.) at /Library/Perl/darwin/Template/ line 574.

If I turn off taint checking (remove the -T), that page loads, but then when I
generate a report, report.cgi says:

Software error:

For help, please send mail to the webmaster ([no address given]), giving this
error message and the time and date of the error. 

Once I disable taint checking on both of the scripts, it works great. Here is my
 checksetup output for reference:

If you you want to see graphical bug dependency charts, you may install
the optional libgd and the Perl modules GD-1.19 and Chart::Base-0.99b, e.g. by
running (as root)

   perl -MCPAN -e'install "LDS/GD-1.19.tar.gz"'
   perl -MCPAN -e'install "N/NI/NINJAZ/Chart-0.99b.tar.gz"'

If you want to use the bug import/export feature to move bugs to or from
other bugzilla installations, you will need to install the XML::Parser module by
running (as root)

   perl -MCPAN -e'install "XML::Parser"'

bbaetz: is this GetFormat being broken?

The first part of it, probably, yes.

Try trick_tainting the vars after you s// them, in getformat.
Attached patch Patch v.1 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Uses m// instead of s/// in GetFormat and fixes Throw*Error to actually copy in
the extra_vars (the cunning code we copied from a newsgroup doesn't seem to

Attached patch Patch v.2Splinter Review
Patch v.2 - different approach.

Patch v.2

Yeah, this works. This may be a TT2.07 vs 2.08 thing, I guess (for you not
seeing this)
