RFE: Indicate whether emails have been sent on the mine.py page
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:36:30 EDT
Please can the "list of updates" pages (e.g list.py, mine.py) have two
additional columns specifying whether an email has been sent about each of the
Testing and Final versions of this update - probably as additional cross/tick
columns, similar, and adjacent to, the "Pushed" column. This would make it even
easier to track what tasks I've got left to do via the UI.
(the new update system is great, BTW; thanks!)
Since the updates are separated into "Pushed" and "Pending", it's pretty
pointless to have a 'pushed' category in either.
Pushed updates now have a "Mail Sent" column, and Pending updates have a
Reopening, and changing bug title: from the point of view of a package owner
(i.e. me!) I think the most important thing here is the "mine.py" page; and I
think adding a separate "Mail Sent" column to it would be an improvement.
Currently it has a "Submitted" column, but after submitting a bug I'm expected
to send an email after the release team pushes it. So there are several stages
to my workflow, and I'd be helpful to have an "at a glance" way of seeing what
stage each erratum is at, and if anything is blocking on me (typically I'll have
several errata, and various stages of completion).
Does this make sense? Or have I totally misremembered how this works (composing
the announcement email at the same time as the request to the release team is
made and having it generate the email at this time might be a further
(the next stage after sending the email is to await for the email to actually be
sent by the relevant mailing list; for the annouce list it needs moderator
approval; once this is done, I can then comment on or close the related bugs as
appropriate; though arguably the annoucement doesn't need to go out once the
package is in place for download)
The My Updates page now displays both the Submitted and Mail Sent columns.
