Description

19 years ago
When you reopen a RESOLVED FIXED bug, it becomes REOPENED FIXED, and so one has
to then make it REOPENED without fixed. This is a pain, and causes undue amounts
of spam... :-)

Could something be changed? eg, change the radio buttons to:

  ( ) Reopen bug and clear resolution
  ( ) Reopen bug and leave resolution field

Thanks.

Reassigning to dmose@mozilla.org, who now has front-line responsibility for
all Bonsai and Bugzilla bugs.

Reassigning back to me.  That stuff about me no longer being the front-line
person responsible for Bugzilla and Bonsai turned out to be short-lived.
Please pardon our confusion, and I'm very sorry about the spam.
Is there any case where you *would* want to leave the resolution field as-is when
reopening the bug?

Terry: This must be a trivial bug to fix, but it is resulting in leger spending
a while each day finding all bugs that have been reopened but not had their
resolution cleared so that he can clear them. Fix this bug, for his sake,
please.... :-)

Jan --

This behavior was originally specified way back in BugSplat days.  It was
requested by the QA department there.  Do you remember why?  *I* don't.  What is
your opinion on this issue?

Maybe this two-step process was a clumsy way of verifying the reopen? If so, my
suggestion for bug 13534 (a single `Verified' flag, to verify all changes in
status) would fix this.

I can't think of a good reason for this behavior.  reopened fixed is not a
sensible state -- the only execuse it that it shows you the bug was once
"fixed", but the activity gives you that anyway.

I think the argument was (not that I agree with it) that you could really easily
query for that, whereas doing the query based on the activity log is difficult
to impossible.

I see not problem with having a reopened bug clear it's resolution 
automatically.  I came in late to Bugsplat just 2 years ago.  I have no idea  
why this is like this.

Well, OK, then.

Fixed.  REOPENing a bug will now clear the resolution.
