Description User image Mark Hamby 1999-05-18 13:39:58 PDT
You may not want this "enhancement", but it seemed to
me that you might want to whine about ASSIGNED bugs which
have not changed.  And also about REMIND and LATER bugs.
So I expanded the concept of whining to include these.

Note: The modifications were designed to minimize the
differences between the official Bugzilla and my version.
Thus the 'whinedays' parameter was not changed to
'whinedays_new'.  And the whining was all left in ''.
You may wish to change this if you accept the enhancement.

I have some questions about the design and operations philosophy
behind the RESOLVED REMIND and RESOLVED LATER bug states,
but will address those on the discussion group.

Since I entered this patch/bug, our site has since disable the whining
feature of Bugzilla.  Apply this patch (or its equivalent intent) based
on Mozilla's usage (or mailing list opinion poll of other users).
Close it as WONTFIX if no one is interested.  -- Mark

My attached patch (id=8283) is just another kind of whining on already assinged
bugs, which have been forgotten by the user. The amount of days, after that a
bug counts as forgotten, is user selectable through the userprefs-page (email-
settings), which is also covered by the patch.

Adding default QA contact to all open Webtools/Bugzilla bugs lacking one.
Sorry for the spam.

I'm not sure about these patches, but I'd like a generic whining mechanism in

-> Bugzilla product, Email component (whinemail), reassigning.
Comment 9 User image Gervase Markham [:gerv] 2001-10-09 19:01:05 PDT
The author of this patch now has no interest in it; Matty has expressed interest
in a generic whining mechanism. This would seem like the sensible way to go. At
b.m.o, we seem to have found that whinemail is counter-productive anyway.

When it is compulsory and for the specific purpose it is currently used for, it
probably is.  Anyway, I'm sure I already reported a bug for this.

Patch to whine about non-NEW bugs

doesn't really fit with the direction this bug is heading, so putting 
"needs-work" to get it off the "waiting patches" list.

Bug #96635 is kind of related to this.  You can see specific whine requests
hanging off that.

Changing default owner of Email Notifications component to JayPee, a.k.a.
J. Paul Reed (  Jake will be offline for a few months.

Bug 185090 has been filed on this same topic.  I'm going to dupe this one to
that one because it has a newer patch with more generic reporting mechanisms.
Breaking now-irrelevant dependencies, I'll put some of them back on the other bug.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 185090 ***

clearing target on DUPLICATE/WONTFIX/INVALID/WORKSFORME so they'll show up as
untriaged if they get reopened.
