Description Stephen Rasku 2008-02-08 23:25:08 UTC
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
    Bugzilla 2.18-rh

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try and resolve bug you reported (e.g. bug 177547 for me)
Actual results:
   I get the following message: "You tried to change the Status field from
NEEDINFO to CLOSED, but only the owner or submitter of the bug, or a autorized
user, may change that field."

Expected results:
   Bug should be closed as I am the reporter of the specified bug.  Also note
that it should be "an authorized user" not "a autorized user".

I believe that it should be enough for you just to comment on the bug, attach
patch, and the real maintainer should evaluate the patch and close the bug when
she is satisfied with your proposed solution.

I would strongly lobby for WONTFIX in this case.

Hi Stephen,

177547 is a RHEL bug and for that only redhat employees or people who are in the
rhel_beta group can close RHEL bugs.

I am reopening the bug.  Bugzilla is not working as documented.  If that is the
behaviour that you want then the error message should be changed to indicate how
the system actually works.

clearer error messages applied to the code now that should give clearer idea why
unauthorized bug reporters can not close rhel bugs. should be live when new
bugzilla package is pushed live in about a week.

Closing bug.
