Description of problem:
RE: Bug 440557

I set the NEEDINFO flag to 'any' bugproxy@us.ibm.com. Later, after the information request was sent back, I updated the bug and selected the check box field "I am providing the requested information for this bug." and saved. After saving, the bug remains in NEED_INFO

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Currently always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "I am providing the request info...."
2. Save
3. Bug is still in NEED_INFO
Actual results:
Bug remains in NEED_INFO even after selecting what would appear to be the 'drop need info' select box.

Expected results:
The bug would no longer have the NEED_INFO flag set

Additional info:

Hmm, yeah, still can't cancel the needinfo on this bug. Other's worked alright. Maybe it's because this bug is set in the VERIFIED state?? Hmm...

Quick question, did you add a comment when you set the "I am providing the request info...." checkbox? It requires a comment to be added along with checking the box. That may be the problem here. 

If that is the case, then it could be debated that this is a bug I suppose since a person may not add a comment and want to clear a previous needinfo request.

FWIW, the needinfo flag can be cleared manually by unsetting the needinfo flag in the flags section. The checkboxes/dropdowns under the comment box are merely shortcuts to the needinfo flag itself.

Comment 3 Chris Ward 2008-12-05 04:11:56 EST
That was the issue. I guess this isn't a bug, since we don't want people randomly remove the NEEDINFO even if they're not provided information. For the cases like mine, i could have simply removed the flag manually. Thanks for the info. It all makes sense.
