Description

6 years ago
I noticed when editing multiple bugs at once in some Mozilla Localizations components that there exists a "Locale" multi-selection field (and it seems to be kept up-to-date, given the number of bugs on the issue of its contents).

I don't know what it's currently used for, but I wonder if it might be useful to turn this on in Mozilla Localizations :: Other (or whatever component results from bug 938195) to facilitate easy tracking of which locales are relevant for a particular tracking bug. (I've added whiteboard tags of the format "[locale:qaz-QZ]" to a few bugs recently for this purpose.)
i discussed this with gphemsley on irc, and he said that axel may have some concerns with this proposal; this wins him a needinfo for confirmation :)

I don't remember the contents of our IRC discussion, but it's not likely that bug 938195 is going to go through, given the discussion on the newsgroup at the time.

I still think this locale multi-select could be useful, though, so I'm reopening.

Talking to dkl, the Locale flag is per product only, and having the Locale flag in per-locale components would be hell-confusing.

Having it just in Other would be fine with me, though.

I agree. I didn't intend to suggest that.

sorry, but i'm not clear what information you require from me.

if you have reached a decision and need actions to be taken, please reopen the bug and summarise the required changes.

The bug is already open. ;)

Please add the Locale multi-select field to Mozilla Localizations :: Other.
