Bugzilla already sends resolution emails. If you're not getting them, check your
email prefs.

How is this different from that?

Resolution: --- → INVALID
The target milestone on a resolved bug usually tells you what version contains
the fix.  Unfortunately you have to view the bug to get that...

Someone could always make a manual mass-comment to all those bugs when the new
version finally comes out.  Wonder how many people would complain about the spam
if we did that though....  :)

The "bug resolved" email is sent anyway, so it would be appreciated if that
email could have the target milestone value included where appropriate. I don't
understand how Bugzilla generates these emails, but wouldn't it mean just adding
the "target milestone" parameter to the template used to generate them?

Ha ha ha... email generated by templates... ... ha ha.

Seriously though, bug 84876 will templatize all email from Bugzila; currently,
email sent by Bugzilla isn't templatized.

And lots of people probably wouldn't like the feature you're proposing (it also
is more complex than you think, if I'm understanding what you want), so it will
be something you could customize in the template, I should think... after 84876
goes in, that is.

So if I understand that correctly, the "resolved" email has its own layout
hard-coded into the program? Does this mean the "target milestone" could be
added to that without using templates for every message?

If you wanted to hack it, yes (it's more difficult than that... you'd have to
add logic to make processmail figure out that the change on the bug was changing
the resolution to 'fixed', and then in *that* case alone, add the milestone as

Templating every mail message is the right way (tm) to do it; and that's what
84876, which is currently a top priority (after 124174 goes in) is about.
