RFE: Customisable "Report a Bug" link
Last modified: 2014-10-19 19:00:23 EDT
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_TEXT: "QE Comment"
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.
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.
I might add that this feature is needed to enable (QE) feedback to go to Bugzilla for non-EAP products.
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.
In summary: I'd like it to be able to use different bugtracking systems, and to facilitate mashing up with Zanata for experimental purposes.
