Description Alec Leamas 2013-10-18 09:56:46 EDT
Created attachment 813783 [details]
Look for six or seven digits instead of '#' + any number of digits.

Description of problem:
When submitting an update (i. e., 'fedpkg update') fedpkg tries to identify relevant bugs by scanning the changelog. To be catched , bug nr must bw written with a leading '#' like in #1234567. This fact not documented (?), and a newbie as me might write bug references in changelog without the '#'

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


How reproducible: lways

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create  specfile which needs an update.
2. Include some bug numbers without the '# in changelog
3. Run 'fedpkg update'

Actual results:
The field for bugs in update template is empty

Expected results:
Bugs are included.

Additional info:
Enclosing a patch which matches all bug numbers (6 or 7-digits in changelog. Of course, this might occasionally match something which is not a bug, but is should not be often. And even if so, the consequences are far from catastrophic.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 15:17:41 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 12:43:49 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
