In the "My Votes" page, the "Votes" text box should be a checkbox, since after
the policy change you cannot vote more than once anyway

    I think for other components such as webtools there is still more than one
vote allowed, so for those components an option menu would certainly be
appropriate. (At least I have just seen somebody giving five votes to a

I would like to vote for this bug, but I can't. See bug 41519.

I'm attaching a patch to showvotes.cgi which does the following:

- if the max number of allowed votes per bug is one, it offers a checkbox,
- if that number is less than ten, it offeres a selection,
- else the behaviour is unchanged (text input).

    Additionally products without any votes tabulated are now omitted since
I don't find them very interesting and without them you maybe don't have to
scroll to see everything. But that's just a one-line change, you can leave
it out if you don't like it.

    Unfortunately I can't test this since I don't have mySQL et al
installed.  So can somebody please review and test this patch (and
maybe even check it in)? Thanks!

    - Stephan.

I attached a patch two months ago. What should I do to get this checked in?
Isn't this the appropriate place here?
I think a selection of numbers is a bit much.  I'd much prefer a textbox or a
I'm with Matt.  I think the select box is a bit much.  Post a new patch with just 
the checkbox and the text box if you can.

Attached is the modified patch without the selection. Now you get either a
checkbox or a text input.

Please review and test. Again, I can't test this because I don't have my own
Bugzilla installation, sorry.

Maybe this could also make it for 2.12?

This patch causes globals.pl to barf when showvotes.cgi is invoked:

SELECT products.product, products.maxvotesperbug FROM products: Table 'products'
was not locked with LOCK TABLES at globals.pl line 171

I'll try to dig into this a bit later, but if you could have a look at it it
would more likely make the 2.12 cut.

Okay, I didn't know I have to lock a table before trying to read from it.
Now I changed  SendSQL("lock tables bugs read, votes write");
to             SendSQL("lock tables bugs read, products read, votes write");
which should fix this.

Please test again. Thanks!

I now have patched my personal copy of BugZilla 2.11 (cvs pull from yesterday)
with this patch, and it's working quite well.
I think this is the right way to do this, looks nice!

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

Can't verify, as no "One vote only" components on landfill. Either that, or this 
doesn't work. :-)

Verified, this is present on the Mozilla products on mozilla.org.
