Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 849835
new bug (or forced re-open) needed when dup crosses releases
Last modified: 2012-08-22 22:04:19 EDT
Description of problem: A new bug should be filed when the product Release and package point version differ from a "dup" in an old Release, paricularly if the old Release is end-of-life. The bug has been re-incarnated, but the current abrt still considers the bug to be dead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. abrt claims that bug 849821 is a dup of bug 729732, even though the two n-v-r are
which are quite different (two Fedora Releases, a major Thunar release).
Actual results: "dup" based on hash ignores cross-Release changes
Expected results: Differing Release causes new bug, or at least re-open of old bug. (Note that bugzilla ordinarily requires that only the original Reporter can re-open a Closed bug. This is too stringent a condition when the Fedora Release changes.)
