Description Noura El hawary 2008-07-08 16:36:26 UTC
few bugs have NEEDINFO_REPORTER status in them as reported by tony, this all
needs to be cleaned out as part of the NEEDINFO status clean up for the 3.2
bugzilla migration.

v1 added code to clean up NEEDINFO_REPORTER status

attached is a patch to the needinfo cleanup script which does clean up of the
NEEDINFO_REPORTER status and also now it has code to write the output to a log
file so we can keep track and record of the clean up process and keep Meethune
happy lol.

please review when you can.


Comment 2 Noura El hawary 2008-07-09 13:07:34 UTC
just a note when i checked the partner database it had about 35 bugs with
NEEDINFO_REPORTER, but currently the live production database has only one bug
with that status, i just fixed the script just in case at the time of the
migration there are more bugs again with that status.

Looks good Noura. 

One little nitpick though:
Change MYFILE to LOGFILE or LOG to be more descriptive.

Once that is changed, feel free to checkin and then send email for bhowmick to
run on partner-bugzilla.


Comment 4 Noura El hawary 2008-07-09 21:48:16 UTC
Thanks for the review Dave, changed to LOGFILE, and sent request to run the
script on partner-bugzilla.


Comment 5 Noura El hawary 2008-07-10 02:14:53 UTC
looking the the result i got from meethune from running the clean up script on
partner-bugzilla , 2 things went wrong:

1- the needinfo?($SOMONE) string was appending the reporters from each bug to
the other because i forgot to rest the string to its original value inside each

2- new thing came out which is what if the prev status to a bug with NEEDINFO
was NEEDINFO_REPORTER or the other way around prev status with NEEDINFO_REPORTER
was NEEDINFO this will still change back to the NEEDINFO or NEEDINFO_REPORTER
and we haven't done anything.

a patch is attached which has the fix for the above 2 cases also i run the
script with that patch on bz-db1-test and the output is attached

patch for the rest of NEEDINFO_* cleanup

This is the patch that includes fix for the above points, basically i found out
that there are some other previous statuses that are not valid and should not
be set instead of the NEEDINFO status for example, INVISTIGATE, NEEDINFO_PM
so i put condition for the previous status that it has to be in:

removed IN (select value from bug_status where isactive=1 and is_open=1 and
value != 'NEEDINFO')

please see attached patch.
