Description

13 years ago
today i can setup a bugzilla and allow people to indicate "this bug needs a testcase" by creating a per-bug-flag "testcase"

i can also make it requestable so that i can do:

testcase?qa-dipper-feature@zapper-product.bugs

but what if a bug has 3 corner cases in distinct comments and i want to ask qa to make a testcase for each comment, and then have them be able to tell me that they've made those testcases.

or what if i want someone to comment about the idea in comment N. or to approve the plan described in comment Y?

if i could create per comment requestable flags,
e.g.
comment?
opinion? as a flag would be nice too

it might look like:
confirm[comment3]?qa-foopy@zapper-product.bugs

approve[comment7]?manager@zapper-product.bugs

where comment7 has the plan for the bug, and the flag indicates we're asking the zapper manager to approve the plan. and the zapper manager could do:
manager@zapper-product.bugs:approve[comment7]+ or
john-doe@example.com:approve[comment7]+
(i'd slightly rather it be the latter, ideallyl that it be done by delegation/impersonation so that you can see both what user and with what role the user is acting, but that's an unrelated enhancement).

sure you can have approval on a bug. but what does that mean?

Per discussion with mkanat on IRC, we won't implement this.
