Description Thomas Covello 2004-02-19 10:42:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040115

Description of problem:
Under Preferences->permissions, I see that I have the 'canconfirm' bit
set. I cannot, however, confirm bugs.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Go to Preferences->Permissions.
Try to confirm a NEW bug.
The option to do so isn't ever available.

I can only change my own bugs.
Comment 2 David Lawrence 2004-03-29 15:31:10 EST
this is expected behaviour. The canconfirm permission is a left over
from the upstream bugzilla source which initially puts new bugs in a
UNCONFIRMED state. People with the canconfirm perm can put bugs from
UNCONFIRMED to NEW. We instead put them staight into a NEW state. 
After that only people with editbugs perms or the reporter can edit
the report (minus adding a comment or adding self to cc list). I have
removed the canconfirm permission to avoid confusion since this is the
first time the topic has come up.
