Description Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-24 05:35:38 EDT
"Accept bug" has the same effect as "Assign bug to owner of selected
component", rather than assigning it to the person doing it.
I guess that's a bug, not a feature...
Comment 1 David Lawrence 2000-08-24 09:33:45 EDT
No, it basically changes the status to ASSIGNED and leaves the owner of the bug
to whatever currently is set to. If you want to reassign the bug to yourself
then you need to enter your email address in the 'Assign bug to _______' field
and commit the change. Accept bug (which admittedly may not be clear as to what
it means) is basically there to say that it is highly possible that this really
is a bug or has actually be verified.
