Several people have reported on the Extras list that updating the initialcclist
field in owners.list does not propagate to Bugzilla. I've not used that feature
for a while but have placed a call on the Extras list for those who have to fill
in the specifics here.
For me it didn't work when bug 196616 got filed, I co maintain this with
Jindrich Novy and I'm in the initial-CC field of allegro (and have been for a
long time). So when this new bug got opened I would have exected to be put in
the CC-list which didn't happen.
Same here. I was on the initalcclist in owners.list for glabels (which I've
since taken primary maintainership of in Extras); but at the time that bug
#197633 was filed, the reported had to add me to the CC: list as Bugzilla
wouldn't do it automatically as it should have.
dkl -- I'm not sure how the magic for this happens. If I should point somewhere
else, just let me know where.
This is something that Elliot should look at. I do not handle that side of things.
Has initialcc from owners.list to Bugzilla ever worked before?
I suppose it has, at least upstream is auto-Cc'd on FE pcsc-lite bugs and I
believe fedora-perl-devel on the vast majority of FE perl-* packages, and there
are plenty of other examples around. Hopefully no poor soul has been tortured
with the task of manually entering those to Bugzilla.
Any progress here? I think this is pretty much a showstopper for package
co-maintainership in Extras.

Lost track on this one. Sorry.

Has he time, interest and access to the machines to fix this shit these days? I
don't think so. Warren, Jeremy, how do we get this solved? It's lingering around
far to long (I in fact thought this was fixed in between as I heard no complains
for quite some time)

For the record, here's a potential (untested) fix sent to Warren and Jeremy in
PM last Thursday: off-by-one error, resulting in the script trying to use
initialqacontact from owners.list to populate initialcclist.
Ville's fix looks good; I've committed it and put it on the running copy so the
next run of the script should pick it up
I think this was fixed and we're using the pkgdb now anyway, so closing.
