Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 819709
Groups dropped when moving bugs between products
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:47:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Mass moving bugs between products seems to drop all group privileges.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a group of bugs, some with group privileges
2. Move them to a different product, choosing the "Don't change this group restriction" option.
Watch the group privileges disappear.
Group privileges should remain
This occurred when processing RT 152195.
I have found out the cause of this, and have filled a bug upstream since it affects them. If they mark it as WONTFIX, then I'll carry the change locally since it definitely doesn't work as I would expect it to.
So I proposed two options upstream, but have found flaws in both of them. I've proposed a third solution (bigger patch, but better solution IMO), but we are going to wait until LpSolit and dkl get online so they can add their 2¢ worth before I start writing a patch.
It seems my third idea is the best one. I've written a patch for it and submitted it upstream. Will wait for them to approve it before putting it in our code base.
Since this won't make the cut before 4.2.1-3 is released, I'm marking this as CLOSED/UPSTREAM. When (if) they include it in Bugzilla 4.2, we inherit the code that way.
Upstream approved the patch, but rejected it for inclusion upstream. Therefore we will carry this change locally. Changed the estimate to one hour more to get the patch and make the recommended changes.
