Please download version xx.xx or later which contains the updated module. This is available from www.bugzilla.org Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Report a bug using Bugzilla 2. Receive many progress reports 3. Actual Results: Many progress updates Get "Status: resolved (URL)" email Expected Results: Get progress updates Get "Bug has been fixed in version xx.xx and is documented at (URL), download from ..."
Bugzilla already sends resolution emails. If you're not getting them, check your email prefs. How is this different from that?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → RESOLVED
Last Resolved: 16 years ago
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.... :)
Severity: minor → enhancement
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 well). 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.
