This probably never got looked at because the owner of that script doesn't even
have a bugzilla account. I would suggest you email him directly for updates.

By the way, that script looks so old that I think it should probably be removed
until further notice.

We plan to make this a part of the main code soon. (or at least something
similar to it).  On the off chance we actually use this as the base for it, this
bug needs to stay open.

delta_ts patch

This patch was applied to the 2.17.6 release.  It does more than fix the
delta_ts problem.  

- handles delta_ts
- works for 2.17.6 (drops processmail and uses BugMail::Send)
- does not add Subject text if it's already a repeat of the summary header
- allows for white spaces when processing the "[Bug #]" text
- includes fixes from bug #162335
  - emails back if the bug id does not exist and exits cleanly
- it doesn't handle attachments or multi-part data (I don't think that
  ever worked in the first place)

BTW, the way things gets included was a bit confusing.	I ended up
removing the chdir/push lines but have left it in for this patch.

unidiff version of delta_ts patch

I needed albert ting's patch (attachment (id=139756)), but his is an icky unix
patch. I converted it into a unidiff patch, which should greatly help anyone
who (like me) has other patches to and is trying to
get some of the bugfixes out, but not others (or whatever).

Contextless patches suck! diff -u is your friend.

Thanks Tyler! I've already been converted to "diff -u", but didn't realize this
was still around.

Whoops. Wrong set of diffs. Obsoleting.

delta ts patch unidiff fix

Ok, this is (hopefully!) the right one.

I also fixed a misplacement of a use line and changed a chop to chomp (i'm
pretty sure that's what was meant).

For futere expansion/localization should there be a template for the error
e-mail in the DealWithError?

Idea is to use something like Param('whinemail') used in or 
Param("voteremovedmail") inside RemoveVotes subroutine in

The PerformSubsts should definitely be used for composition.

Please break this patch down to something that handles only the summary of this
bug, and file other bugs for the other problems.

OK, nobody's working on this, unless we suddenly start getting some response
from the person who posted the patch originally. So we're just going to untarget
it entirely.
