Comment 1 Jonathan Peatfield 2010-08-17 01:11:53 UTC
Can I comment on this one?

Comment 2 Jonathan Peatfield 2010-08-17 01:17:25 UTC
Hmm I can, maybe  623849  is broken, I note that at the bottom of the page when i view it I see 'Status : NEW <selection-list> of <text-entry>' while on this bug I see 'Status: '<selection-list>' as normal.

Somehow #623849 seems to have got into an odd state.

Hi Jonathan, 

I tried to add a comment to bug #623849 and it worked for me, I can not reproduce the error, can you please try to add the comment again and let us know if you still get the error.


Comment 4 Jonathan Peatfield 2010-08-17 13:41:28 UTC
It still gives:

  You cannot set a resolution for open bugs.

 Please press Back and try again.

if I try to add a comment to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=623849

I'd assume it was a problem with my account but I can comment on this one...

I still see the status of that bug showing as:

Status: NEW <selection-list> of <text-entry>

where selection-list contains things like NOTABUG etc which I thought were resolutions but I know very little about how bugzilla actually works.
