User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) Build Identifier: a bug marked as duplicate should include the descriptions of every other duplicates on a prominent place. or, search should give all the duplicate bugs of a result entry too. it would further prevent adding duplicates, because you get a better picture of the bug, as all information + duplicate information is displayed. you don't have to grab for duplicates to notice it is already filed.

I don't understand the bug description. reporter (solo turn), can you give us an example?

I for one don't think this is a dupe, at least not of bug 24957... Bug 24957 is about buglist.cgi while this bug is about show_bug.cgi.

Makes sense to me.

bug 469018 comment 1 suggests display format similar to dependencies
Summary: display bug + duplicate bug info on one screen, and/or search should do this too → display bug + duplicate bug info on one screen in the bug
(In reply to comment #5) > bug 469018 comment 1 suggests display format similar to dependencies bug 55436 has a detailed proposal in attachment 449438 [details] how to present information on duplicate bugs in show_bug.cgi. I'm not sure if comment 0 wants to display the full summaries of all duplicates on the main bug, but I'm sure this will not be implemented by default. However, this bug should stay open as a reminder that there should be a way of accessing the complete list of a bug's direct and indirect duplicates including their full summaries. I figure there's basically two ways of doing this: A) Implement a _show summaries_ toggle link after the list of dupes that bug 469018 seeks to implement. User can click on it to show/hide summaries of the duplicates on the main bug. B) Add a section for duplicates to our current "dependency tree" page (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showdependencytree.cgi): Bug XXXXX has 5 duplicate bugs (2 direct and 3 indirect duplicates): bug yyyyyy the first duplicate bug's summary bug zzzzzz the second duplicate bug's summary C) Of course, we could also have a separate tree only for the duplicates. I'd think that B) is a reasonable and realistic approach.
Typo fix (In reply to comment #6): > A) Implement a _show summaries_ toggle link after the list of dupes that *bug 55436* seeks to implement. > I'd think that B) is a reasonable and realistic approach. ...and C) looks good, too, if B) is unwanted. Not sure about A).
We shouldn't waste room in the bug report with descriptions from other duplicates. With the implementation of bug 55436, you can easily click the "view as buglist" link and get all the information you want from there.
