I used to make Bugzilla queries based on the date of comments that I made on bug reports, looking for strings like the one below in the description field: "Additional Comments From email@example.com 2000-01-1" It doesn't work anymore. I think it was broken in the past few days. It's a bit annoying, I used to fill out my weekly status reports using that method. Maybe the problem is related to the "Added comment" checkbox in the Query page. I don't remember having seen it before. Another solution would be to have this checkbox followed by a text field allowing you to enter a number of days (ie. < username> added comments in the last <xx> days).
Sigh. So, the good news is that those dates are now really stored in the database. It should be possible to do real queries based on those dates (like, "find all bugs that I added a comment to between 1/15/2000 and 1/25/2000"). The bad news is that there is no UI to do those queries. The new "Added comment" thing you noticed does match against the name, but there is no place to match against the date. I guess I can add something to that ugly scrolling list (the one that says "where the field(s)").
That would be neat. Thanks. I tried with the current page to use the "Added comment" checkbox in addition to the "Changed in the last X days" field but it returned me a long list including many bugs that I added comments to several months ago and that were touched by someone else in the last X days. Make sure we don't have the same results with the new system.
You can now search for "Comment" "changed before" and "Comment" "changed after" using the new boolean chart feature.
Reopening: it doesn't work for me. I tried "Comment changed by firstname.lastname@example.org" AND "Comment changed after 2000-01-25" but it returns a long list of bugs that don't match the criteria (bug 1516 for instance). I tried with different date formats ("2000-01-25", "2000-01-25 00:00:00", "2000- 01-25 00:00:00 PST" etc...) but it didn't work.
Whoops! I had a stupid typo. Fixed.
per Terry, auto-verifying any resolved bug that hasn't been touched since before 2.10 was released.
