Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-17 04:19:09 UTC

When reviewing the emails generated with "bugzilla-daemon at"
it should be possible to see the URL *inside* the emails as "[Bug nnnn]  New:
foo" also.

2) sends *inside* the notification for following emails as
------- Comment #162 from NN  date and time -------

This should be only a configuration (or version) issue.

(In reply to comment #1)
Thanks Brion for the quick answer.
1) is INVALID; it worked fine already before I opened this report

2) please take a look at
line 800 ..

800     foreach (@$comments) {
801         my ($who, $when, $text, $isprivate, $already_wrapped) = @$_;
802         if ($count) {
803             $result .= "\n\n------- Comment #$count from $who" .
804                        Param('emailsuffix'). "  " . format_time($when) .
805                        " -------\n";
806         }
807         if ($isprivate > 0 && Param('insidergroup')) {
808             $anyprivate = 1;
809         }
810         $result .= ($already_wrapped ? $text : wrap_comment($text));
811         $count++;
812     }

line 803 contains *#$count*

3) It might be possible to append also "#cnn" to the links send via email. One
must scroll however to view what the bug is about (summary, product, component
etc.). However MediaZilla is wikified while the email content is not. This is
why "show_bug.cgi?id=FOO#cBAR" is a better source then the email.

*note* There is no anchor for "View Bug Activity" and I do not know if using
"show_activity.cgi?id=FOO" instead of "show_bug.cgi?id=FOO" would be a goog idea.

4) At *URL* we could insert between the editbox and the button "Commit" *(if
possible as permanent link)* or somthing similar. This practice would help
finding the url's easier because most wiki pages get changed / fixed. Permanent
links should be accessible until these oldid's get deleted. Permanent links
should help to save time.
