localconfig.js contains strings of equals signs (===)


(Bugzilla :: Bugzilla-General, defect, P2)




Bugzilla 2.18


(Reporter: myk, Assigned: goobix)



(1 file)

localconfig.js contains strings of equals signs (===), which can be
misinterpreted as indicators of a conflict in the file when using grep to find
files with conflicts in them.  Recommendation: use a different character to
underline section headers.
Severity: enhancement → minor
Priority: -- → P2
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 2.16
Workaround: grep for '<<<' instead of '==='.
Component: Bugzilla → Bugzilla-General
Product: Webtools → Bugzilla
Version: Bugzilla 2.13 → 2.13
We are currently trying to wrap up Bugzilla 2.16.  We are now close enough to
release time that anything that wasn't already ranked at P1 isn't going to make
the cut.  Thus this is being retargetted at 2.18.  If you strongly disagree with
this retargetting, please comment, however, be aware that we only have about 2
weeks left to review and test anything at this point, and we intend to devote
this time to the remaining bugs that were designated as release blockers.
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.16 → Bugzilla 2.18
Proposed patch.
I'm kind of ambivalent on this one.  ===== is used for all sorts of things.  I
always use <<<< to look for conflicts.

Although you hit that in with the Perl format strings for the mail
diffs :)
