Description David Lawrence 2009-05-13 13:01:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently when a bug is resolved, the user's votes are still attached to the bug report and are not automatically cleared and given back to the user. 
Should we clear the votes for all users for the bug when it is resolved or leave it and let the user unallocate them manually?

Comment 1 Kevin Baker 2009-05-14 04:30:03 EDT

We could make this configurable to make it more palatable to the upstream.
Either a config option at the application level so all products have this before (or not) OR at the product level.


Should it just give back the votes when a bug is closed? Or should there be a time limit before the next round of voting? For example a date could be set on which all votes on closed bugs get given back to the voter so they can take part in the next round.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 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 3.4.
Comment 3 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 17:40:04 EDT
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.

Something is wrong with the voting.  

I was just notified that I voted 10 times on a single bug I was watching.

I don't recall voting once, definitely not more than once.

As noted previously, the Bugzilla Team is cleaning up a large number of outstanding issues that have bit rotted. This bug is being closed as there has been no response to that notification.

If you believe this bug is still important please reopen this bug in the NEW status and PM will consider it.
