SOFTWARE VERSION: (Control Panel > General > About product) Does Bugzilla have (visible) version numbers??? STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: 1. Create a new bug report 2. there is a pull-down menu called "version". The choices are something like 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 4.1 3. Check the version in your device: Sttings --> Control Panel --> about product There is some like 4.2008.30-2 EXPECTED OUTCOME: Teh version dispalyed by the device should be available in the pull down menu ACTUAL OUTCOME: insider knowldege is needed to map the output from the device to the correct input in bugzilla REPRODUCIBILITY: (always/sometimes/once) Always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: N/A OTHER COMMENTS: If the pull down menu choices are improved, the version number section can be removed from the template. Alternatively the version pull down could be dropped completely. But I think specific fields are always better then free text (even when required by template) User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20080623 Firefox/188.8.131.52
"Target Milestone" already links against http://wiki.maemo.org/Codenames#Release_Table , I'm going to have "Version" also linking. The problem is that a version like 4.0 not always refers to only one release like 2.2007.51-3, so we cannot easily do this.
Adding help is definitely a step into right direction. I appreciate your quick response. Is the version really needed? Well in searches one might have to select several releases, if version is not available. But if the the version can be derived from the release via a simple table lookup, and the user has to enter the release anyway, than system should do the lookup, not the user. (But of course this is a minor issue, so you might have more important things to do)
And please don't forget to add 4.1.1 to the Wiki. This version is available in the pull down menu, but not mentioned in the Wiki. I somehow guessed it might mean the first update release to 4.1 (i.e. 4.2008.30-2) , but if you say that they don't match 1:1 my guess was probably wrong.
The version info is definitely needed for tracking purposes. > But if the the version can be derived from the release via a simple table > lookup, and the user has to enter the release anyway, than system should > do the lookup, not the user. Might be possible, but coding that will not be trivial and my current priorities are different. I tend to currently close this as WONTFIX, but I hope to improve this in the future... I opened bug 3625 which is about linking the string "Version" against http://wiki.maemo.org/Codenames#Release_Table .
My votes for WONTFIX, too. Maemo's moving in the direction of the current versioning system seen in bugzilla, anyway (rather than OS2008 and a build week string).
