Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1010721
needinfo? to reporter or assignee should show from whom it's going to needinfo?
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:51:39 EDT
Another change (this time BMO specific) that I would like to see in our code base too.
It would be nice if setting a needinfo? to"reporter" or "assignee" would show in the UI from whom it's going to request needinfo. (For example, it could display the name where the text input would normally be for "other", maybe in a disabled text input, or maybe just as text.)
This would be useful because I often want to use needinfo?assignee, but half the time the bug is still assigned to firstname.lastname@example.org. So I either:
* don't, and type in the email manually, or
* scroll up to the top of the bug to check the assignee
If it showed up right where I already was, it would be easier to use needinfo?assignee correctly without having to double-check.
(I've had a similar issue with needinfo?reporter, where there was essentially a second reporter who saw the same bug providing information, and I forgot which one was actually the original reporter.)
This change is now live. If there are any issues, do not reopen this bug.
Instead, you should create a new bug and reference this bug.
