Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Dan Jacobson 2006-11-12 23:56:30 UTC
Got a big problem with the mail the bugtracker sends.
It makes it look like one can just hit "r" to reply here in gnus or
other mailers, only to get
    host []:
    550 <>: Recipient address rejected:
    User unknown in relay recipient table

OK, but the mail should warn not to reply. Or say From: dont-reply@...

With my weekly batched connection, it would be nice to be able to
reply by email.  (Congratulations to you who seem to reply in seconds
to my stored up for a week batched hardwired HTML <Form> submissions .)

reply-to is currently set to Wikitech-l.  You can post there if you're
subscribed to it, at least . . .
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-11-13 07:58:18 UTC
We *want* users to be able to discuss bugs in length (when there are larger
implications or the implementation needs discussing) on wikitech-l.
