Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 974621
Generalize "Ubuntu Launchpad" external tracker to just "Launchpad" (incl. URLs change)
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:51:05 EDT
This is a follow up of historical [bug 237747].
I have no idea how Launchpad (LP) was structured back then, but nowadays
Launchpad is the place for various (upstream) projects, Ubuntu being
just one of them. As I think it is useful to link RHBZ bugs to upstream
ones, so to make it easier for LP ones in particular, I suggest
"Add External Bug: Tracker" dropdown menu:
- Ubuntu Launchpad
(or "Launchpad (Ubuntu and other projects)" if we want to ease referring
to Ubuntu side)
Actually added Launchpad tracker
Note that the current state allows to link LP bugs for other projects
as well because IDs are unique globally per LP and "/ubuntu/+bug/<id>"
URL will get redirected to "/<respective-project>/+bug/<id>" when
appropriate, _but_ the current labelling is counter-intuitive
(e.g., I rather used a comment to link Zope bug: [bug 878961 comment 4]).
This change is now live. If there are any issues, do not reopen this bug. Instead, you should create a new bug and reference this bug.
