Description of problem:

Bugzilla sends mails like this (irrelevant Received: headers snipped):

Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 07:17:40 -0500
Message-Id: <200501281217.j0SCHeB5031710@www.beta.redhat.com>

You reported the bug, or are watching the reporter.

Although the headers claim that a comment was added/changed, no
comment was added nor changed in the bug. I think I have received more
such empty mails on this particular bug.

Bug #127726 blocks three private bugs which I can't view. My guess is
that something added in the blocked bugs triggered bugzilla to send
mail down the food chain too. If that it so, bugzilla should either
add an explanatory but non-disclosing comment in the mail, like
"comment/person/attachment added to blocked bug #999999", or not send
mail up the dependecies at all. 

Note that I reported #127726 in bugzilla-current but the message-ID of
the mail says beta, so the version-release of this bug might be wrong.

Should be fixed in new release of Bugzilla.
Comment 2 Zenon Panoussis 2005-03-16 01:43:43 EST
While you're at it, one more thing. Closing this bug caused the following 
mail to be sent:


dkl@redhat.com changed:

           What    |Removed                     |Added
             Status|NEW                         |CLOSED
         Resolution|                            |CURRENTRELEASE

<snip rest>

The URL in the message is wrong and gives a 500 error. 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/ works and 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla-old/ works too, but 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ no longer exists. The 
mails sent by both bugzillas need to be adjusted accordingly.
