Description Danny B. 2010-07-22 12:01:25 UTC
Tracking bug for enhanced toolbar issues.
Comment 1 Bugmeister Bot 2011-08-19 19:12:53 UTC
Unassigning default assignments.
Comment 2 Andre Klapper 2012-10-18 19:21:28 UTC
What subset of tickets in the "WikiEditor" component is this meta bug exactly for?
Comment 3 Valerie Juarez 2013-01-23 19:11:31 UTC
Tentatively adding bug 44215 as blocker. Please remove if this is incorrect.
Comment 4 Andre Klapper 2013-02-08 10:17:14 UTC
Danny B.: Which subset of tickets in the "WikiEditor" component is this meta bug exactly for? I'd like to understand why it exists and the purpose it fulfils.
Comment 5 Andre Klapper 2013-03-20 14:50:27 UTC
Looking at this report's history, it was moved from Component "UsabilityInitiative" to "WikiEditor" (which probably was created later).

Remaining open dependency tickets that had been filed under (deprecated) "UsabilityInitiative" component have been moved to "WikiEditor" component, hence I'm closing this report - it's not needed anymore.
Comment 6 Danny B. 2013-03-21 14:41:29 UTC
Tracking bugs are never to be closed unless the subject of tracking no longer exist. Reopening.
Comment 7 Andre Klapper 2013-03-21 14:49:59 UTC
Yes, tracking bugs can be closed, and all "WikiEditor issues" are covered in the WikiEditor component already. Please explain the need for duplication of categorization if you see reasons for keeping this open - I cannot see any currently.
Comment 8 Danny B. 2013-03-21 15:17:30 UTC
1) You obviously don't realize the basic feature differences between components, keywords and tracking bugs:


Also please read bug 2007 comment 4 why we use tracking bugs and what for (although it comments keywords only, it applies to components as well).
I specifically emphasize the mailing notifications.

Please do realize the differences between these three (I'm discounting the whiteboard, which is sort of unrestricted keywords) bug sorting methods. Each of them has different features which are usable in different usecases for different monitoring and sorting.

2) As stated in comment 6, tracking bugs are not to be closed unless their subject no longer exists, among other exactly to prevent breaking of features mentioned above.

3) You can't close the bug which depends on other opened bugs - that breaks the dependency tree and is obviously against the logic (and the habit up till now). And please don't dare to cheat by removing them. ;-)
Comment 9 Andre Klapper 2013-03-21 15:42:31 UTC
Danny: My repeated questions here what this specific tracker bug is for remained unanswered, and your last comment is unfortunately only a general explanation of some Bugzilla features and concepts that we're both aware of.

Would you mind answering my previous questions, and what *this* specific tracker bug is for (compared to the list of open issues in the WikiEditor component), which additional value it offers, and for who?
