The vending machine on the 2nd floor has raised its prices by $0.05.  This is a 
serious regression!
No, that's inflation and not regression. Although regression can happen due to
high inflation.
dammit, make the last post recession instead of regression.
Sorry for the spam
Clearly this is a licensing issue.  Non-MPL/NPL snacks can not make
contributions to an MPL/NPL project without consenting to grant its rights to
others.  It seems clear to me from bug 17317 that the vending machine snacks
make significant contributions to this project but I have yet to recieve any
"world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license" pursuant to section 2.2 of the
MPL from any snacks.

Get rid of the vending machine and replace it with a MPL version instead.
Ack, now I have to look forward to an increase of $0.11 down here (exchange rate
+ GST)

I have a bugfix.

That's a workaround ;)
As a shareholder in the snackfood company, this worksforme.
I'm afraid this bug also affects the machine on the 3rd floor, but more severely
- if I remember the old prices correctly, the rise is $0.10. :-(

I would set Platform to All, but it's already set that way.

Hey, in my building we have a vending machine that has been upgraded last week
for the new Euro coins (ok, I'm in Europe). Unfortunately, they forgot about
backwards compatibility (quirks mode ?), so it won't accept any old Belgian
francs. But we get those new coins only on January 1st, so the entire machine is
now useless for 4 months.

PS: it's running WinCE :-( So they haven't tested it, either?

What is the status of this bug?s
Severity: critical → blocker
I'm sad to report that the vending machine seems to have increased its pricing 
by a further $0.05. Potato chips are now 75 cents a pack, rather than 65 cents 
as they were when I was here in June. 
isn't this hurting performance too? cc'ing cathleen, who has been helping us out

After talking with the PDT, EDT, ADT, UDT, FU, PP, ING, ABC, XYZ teams, we
agreed that there is not enough time or resources to fix this anytime soon.  If
you feel you have reached this recording in error, please check the number and
try again, or call your operator for assistance.  Thank you.

There's more than one vending machine involved here -- there's a whole network 
of them.  So I'm reassigning from cookies to networking.

Appears like ecommerce keyword may be appropriate here, especially if the
vending machine is web-enabled.
This really is a wallet bug: every time i use the machine, my wallet is

over to steve.

The new name for the wallet module is form-manager, so I'll update the component

You probably hit that innocuous-looking piece of code in the wallet module that
skims a little from everyone's wallet and puts it into mine.  Therefore I have
no incentive to fix this and am marking it as wont-fix.

I'm also considering marking this as security sensitive, lest some attacker
figures out how to do this skimming.  cc'ing mitch for that angle.
