Description Bastien Nocera 2008-08-11 04:44:09 EDT
As GNOME's bugzilla does, the e-mail notifications should mention the component the bug is assigned to in the sender address eg.:

From: 	ekiga ( <>

Instead of:


This makes filtering much easier for me...

We already send the component name in Bugzilla change notification emails. Here is the complete header list that is sent:

From: [% Param('mailfrom') %]
To: [% to %]
Subject: [[% terms.Bug %] [%+ bugid %]] [% 'New: ' IF isnew %][%+ summary %]
X-Bugzilla-Reason: [% reasonsheader %]
X-Bugzilla-Type: newchanged
X-Bugzilla-Watch-Reason: [% reasonswatchheader %]
X-Bugzilla-Classification: [% classification %]
X-Bugzilla-Product: [% product %]
X-Bugzilla-Version: [% version %]
X-Bugzilla-Component: [% comp %]
X-Bugzilla-Keywords: [% keywords %]
X-Bugzilla-Severity: [% severity %]
X-Bugzilla-Comment: [% comment %]
X-Bugzilla-Who: [% changer %]
X-Bugzilla-Status: [% status %]
X-Bugzilla-Priority: [% priority %]
X-Bugzilla-Assigned-To: [% assignedto %]
X-Bugzilla-Target-Milestone: [% targetmilestone %]
X-Bugzilla-Changed-Fields: [% changedfields %]

Could you just filter on X-Bugzilla-Component?

I don't use it to stuff the mails in different IMAP folders, but to filter the view in Evolution. The default filter in Evolution is "Subject or Sender contains". Right now, the only thing it actually searches by is subject as all the senders in my RH bugzilla folder are the same.

Ah I see what you are saying now. So since this is obviously a Bugzilla customization I have changed this to a RFE. This is not part of the standard Bugzilla code base. We are going to start filtering through the RFE's very soon now and start addressing people's requests. We will investigate adding this in at that time.
