Description Johan Walles 2004-08-25 14:35:02 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Description of problem:
I'm CC:d to bug 117972.  It depends on one classified bug, another
classified bug has been closed as a dup of bug 117972 (!), and a bunch
of classified bugs depend on it.

Every time somebody changes something in one of the secret bugs, I get
a mostly empty e-mail from Bugzilla.

Since I can't look at what's changed, I'd rather not be informed about
it at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know.  How do I find out?

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. CC yourself to bug 117972
2. Wait for somebody to change one of the related bugs

Actual Results:  I get an almost empty e-mail that tells me something
has changed, but not what it is.

Expected Results:  Since I'm not allowed to know *what* has changed, I
don't want a mail telling me about that something changed.

Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2008-09-16 16:51:05 UTC
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
