Can you remove the "Changed -" from the subject line, so that it is of the form
"[Bug xxxx] Summary".  Would make it easier to recognize bugs from the subject
line, which is otherwise truncated in the thread display.

Sorry for the spam, but I needed to be able to query for all of these correctly.

The subject is now "[Bug nn]  - subject" which means still four excess characters
(space, space, dash, space).  Attaching a new patch.  Also, the description in wasn't correct any more - this patch fixes this, too.

Please make sure that when updates to this patch that the
parameter "changedmail" is also reset to the new default.  Thanks!

new patch (diff -u, also removing spaces at line endings)
Assignee: cyeh → dave

except:  I think the [Bug xxxx] should still be first before the %neworchanged% 
in the default.  I'd bet that a LOT of people probably have mail filters that 
look for the subject beginning with "[Bug ".

New patch
Here's a new version of the patch, I swapped the order around again so that the 
"[Bug xxx]" is always first.  I also discovered that the previous patch posted 
here only patched the defparam for "changedmail" and only patched the 
substitution setup on the newemailtech (which uses "newchangedmail").  This patch 
also adds the change to defparams for "newchangedmail" and also the change to the 
substitution setup for oldemailtech.

The only thing I don't like about this latest patch is that if you don't go in
and change your parameters to the new default, new bugs of a subject line like
[Bug 35] New:  - Reorginize the Hilite Intranet

OTOH, I really don't see a way around that.  Guess that's just another thing to
put in the 2.12 release notes (are those in the works?).

Latest patch is okay with me, too.  I must have missed the oldemailtech code
since I don't use it any more.

I thought putting the "New" in front would help to avoid confusing it as part
of the summary, but on the other hand it would mess up sorting the mailbox by
summary.  But then, maybe one day bug 31314 will be fixed and this won't matter
any more ...

Checked in.  Heads up, Barnboy, this needs to be release-noted.

CVS checkin comments:

UPGRADE NOTES: when you install this update, you will need to change the subject 
line in your 'changedmail' and 'newchangedmail' params from the web by running 
editparams.cgi. The subject line needs to be changed from:
Subject: [Bug %bugid%] %neworchanged% - %summary%
Subject: [Bug %bugid%] %neworchanged%%summary%

Or whatever is appropriate for the subject you are using on your system. Note the 
removal of the " - " in the middle.

That has nothing to do with this bug.  That's bug 126266.
