Description David Lawrence 2009-08-28 14:56:06 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently when a flag is set to inactive in the core Bugzilla code, if a release flag has been mapped to it, the mapping is still there. When an admin updates the release flags table using editreleases.cgi, it then sees the inactive flags and removes the mappings even if the user didn't know they were doing it. This causes confusion to the user.

editflagtypes.cgi should also remove the mapping in the release flags table as well but this is not trivial as the release flags code is an extension so a hook will need be created.

Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 21:40:40 UTC
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.
