Description Joshua Wulf 2012-02-29 22:29:04 EST
We would like to use the "Report a Bug" link injection in a QE mode.

So we want to customise the text to say something like "QE Comment"
and customise the URL to be something like: 


Maybe we could have in the spec file metadata section something like:

BUG_REPORT_URL: http://zanata-fortitute.lab.eng.bne.redhat.com:8080/webtrans/Application.html?project=SOA-GSG&iteration=5.3&localId-es&locale=en#view:doc;doc:topics/<<TOPICID>>

So <<TOPICID>> would signal to the injector to put the topic ID in.

This is not a good idea. I've talked to David Le Sage, and I don't think this
is the right process for QE. Until I see some more justification about why the
process used by EAP 6 is not appropriate, we should not go forward with this.
Comment 4 Joshua Wulf 2012-02-29 23:03:22 EST
Reopening and separating from the implementation as a QE process, which was a red herring. Sorry for confusing the situation with that.

It may not be suitable for a QE workflow, but the feature is necessary.

I also need this functionality for:


and other books that have been published internally. Currently it is not possible to get feedback for these books and the "Report a bug" link leads to a dead-end.

We also need it for an editing workflow that uses Zanata. See https://engineering.redhat.com/rt/Ticket/Display.html?id=140980

The QE idea is not the only, or even main application, just another possibility.
Comment 5 Joshua Wulf 2012-02-29 23:05:05 EST
I might add that this feature is needed to enable (QE) feedback to go to Bugzilla for non-EAP products.
Comment 6 Joshua Wulf 2012-02-29 23:11:12 EST
If we add <<TOPIC_TEXT>> (a plain text representation of the topic xml) or <<TOPIC_XML>> as an injectable entity it will allow the topic text to prepopulate the bug report. 

That would effectively double the size of the book, but it might be a worthwhile price to pay in some cases for the convenience, and if it's configurable, then it's at the author's discretion.
Comment 7 Joshua Wulf 2012-02-29 23:30:43 EST
In summary: I'd like it to be able to use different bugtracking systems, and to facilitate mashing up with Zanata for experimental purposes.
