Comment 11 Rajesh Krishnan 2008-09-09 14:51:23 EDT
Just wondering, is there any way to attach multiple files in one go, on this web-based Bugzilla interface?

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2008-09-09 14:57:32 EDT
Not again.  Reviewers are in short supply, and the process simply cannot tolerate a huge number of improper requests being dumped onto it (again).  In order for this to work at all:

Please submit properly-formatted review requests using the template at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi?product=Fedora&format=extras-review 

Please submit a small and reasonable number of reviews at a time; five is a good number.  Commentary gained from those reviews can be used to make succeeding packages better.

Please upload the src.rpms and specs to some location and link to them in your review tickets.  Attaching src.rpms and specs makes things inconvenient for the reviewers (which as stated above are in terribly short supply).  If you do not have hosting, please say so and Fedora will arrange some for you.

I am closing this ticket, and I may close other improperly formatted requests in the future.  I apologize for being harsh, but I'm trying to keep some semblance of order in the review queue.
Comment 13 Jens Petersen 2008-09-09 18:55:36 EDT
I suggest starting with one package. :)
Comment 14 Rajesh Krishnan 2008-09-09 23:02:39 EDT
No problem.  At least this would be a placeholder for info and pointers on the above-mentioned Haskell packages for others who would come searching for them.

I will resubmit those using the other URL.  But I guess FedoraProject needs to streamline its user interfaces for package submissions.  

That other URL (extras-review submit page) has the following shortcomings (that I couldn't find it documented anywhere):

1.  Doesn't allow for specifying CC list.

2.  Doesn't allow for marking dependencies of submitted packages.  That is, if I have 2 packages A and B, and A is a dependency for B, and I submit A first and then B, it is not possible to specify the ticket ID of A at the time of submitting B.

And hey, don't throttle me down if you can't keep up with me!  :-)  FedoraProject may have its technical deficiencies and managerial bureaucracies, but not the developers who are capable of submitting the packages, or the end-users who would come here looking for those.  It is important for Fedora management to understand that, and not place a gag-order the contributors, by specifying an upper limit of 1 or 5 or whatever number suits their fancy; despite all the time/resource/reviewer-crunch and other limitations we might have at the moment.

True, but you can CC fedora-haskell-list after opening the bug.

Again you can mark dependencies after opening by making the review bugs block/depend on each other.

> And hey, don't throttle me down if you can't keep up with me!  :-)

Ok, but please follow the package submission process and steps carefully, specially if you are seeking sponsorship. :)

I think once you have gotten one package through, things should be much easier and smoother: hence my suggestion to start with a single package until you get the feel for the review process. :)

Thank you for your contributions.
