Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235556
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:48:22 EDT
Description of problem:
I've been doing triaging on bugs where I am in the CC and matdm has marked them
as needinfo from anyone because they were originally filed against FC5/6 test
When I add a comment and check the "I am providing the requested info" checkbox,
then the status doesn't change from needinfo back to assigend, but stays need
info. Where one would expect it to change back to assigned.
Because of this I have to change the bug from needinfo -> assigned manually,
when i do this (after first trying to get BZ to this auto with the checkbox) I
get the following mail:
Hans de Goede <email@example.com> has cancelled Hans de Goede
<firstname.lastname@example.org>'s request for needinfo:
This is not correct as the info was not requested by my but my matdm
Putting into needinfo by anyone to test this. Please make a comment and
try the override checkbox.
I'm now making a comment and checking the "I am providing the requested
information for this bug." checkbox. However this is different then the original
scenario as there I was only in the CC and here I'm the reporter.
Ok. It may have to do with the person making the comment is not allowed to make
a status change due to not being either the reporter, qa_contact or assigned_to.
I have change the bug to be me as the reporter and added you to the cc list.
Putting into needinfo/reporter. Please try the comment again to see if it changes.
Trying again, yet another comment with the "I am providing the requested
information for this bug." checkbox checked.
Hmm, that seemed to work as well. What other conditions am I missing?

Just noticed you are a member of fedora_contrib group which has editbugs
privilege for all products so that may explain why this last test case worked.
Yes, but then the case where I added a comment to the bugs put in needinfo by
matdm should have worked too? Maybe it also has something todo with the person
requesting the needinfo not being the reporter / assignee?
Hmm I found the behaviour as described in comment #0 (of this bug) on bug
#147262 where I am the reporter (and my account has privileges galore):
- Ticked "I am providing the information..."
- Found that it's still in NEEDINFO
- Manually changed to ASSIGNED
This may as well have something to do with duplicate "needinfo cancelled" mails
I'm seeing, though that may as well be a) me requesting the NEEDINFO while b)
I'm at the same time assignee of the bug. Shall I open another BZ for this last one?
re comment #8, I see that latter behaviour with other bugs, where other people
answer my questions, not the one mentioned.
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.
Should be better in current release. Please reopen if not the case.
