Users want to include the data on which a bug's status whiteboard was updated along with that status in buglists.
Created attachment 194783 [details] [diff] [review] v1 - add the column
I like the concept but this is kind of heading down a slippery slope... before long we'll want this on every column, and probably who made the last change to that column, too. Then again, that's probably not a bad idea, but it'd need a really creative UI...
Well.... in principle, we could let the user optionally edit the COLUMNLIST cookie in a text box. If we change its format to something that can be split unambiguously (csv?), then we can continue to expand the format. fieldname - what we have now fieldname/t - the time fieldname was changed fieldname/w - who changed fieldname fieldname/"%24s" - specifying the width fieldname/t"%Y:%m" - specify a format for the field \n - start a new table row If a user used the basic interface and set a columnlist, then switched to the advanced, the list would just be a list of fielnames. If a user user the advanced edit and then switched to the basic view, we would want to have a warning that changing the list would cause loss of information.
We are freezing the code for 3.0 in two weeks and we don't expect this bug to be fixed on time.
Yeah, I agree, this is a slippery slope. If we can generalize this requirement somehow (that is, say "people want to know about when X changed"), and there is sufficient visible demand for that generalized feature, then perhaps we can consider some form of generic implementation. But I think adding it just for one field is too much complexity without enough value, at this point.
