[as7] Document path behavior
Last modified: 2013-09-01 15:18:53 EDT
The path elements as config parts of e.g. a standalone server have entries that are computed by the server and are in fact read/only. They have the "read-only" checkbox set. See also Bug 817540
Due to limitations in the UI, they are still shown as editable and deletable, but in fact both will not work. If the user deletes them and stores the config, they will re-appear.
Path that are r/o
The read-only checkbox is "write-once" meaning that if a user adds a new path entry and sets this checkbox to true or false, it will stick and become immutable. To change it, the path entry needs to be deleted and re-added
Situation is different (unfortunately):
If the user tries to delete an entry that has the read-only checkbox checked,
we have no way of finding this out(*) and pass the removal to as7 which then
throws an error. This means, the user must not try to edit or remove those
*) We can not prevent removal at all, at the user may try to remove one of the
entries he has added previously and this is allowed.

Should be covered here:
Bulk closing of BZs that have no target version set, but which are ON_QA for more than a year and thus are in production for a long time.
