Description Tomasz Dominikowski (reporter) 2010-07-15 11:37:40 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
(Settings > General > About product)

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Have auto checking for updates enabled
2. Have auto downlading enabled
3. switch to 3g just to check mail and forget that gpodder is running in the
background
4. Have monthly data allowance eaten away

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
Automatic checking for new episodes and automatic downloading when new episodes
are found should be possible to disable in options. This way I won't have to
remember to turn gpodder off and on depending on which connection I'm on.
Manually triggered update should also warn user about 3G and give an "are you
sure?" dialog. I would imagine it could be a two-level protection, the UI
identical to how auto checking and auto downloading is handled. So the button
would say "When using 3G data" and when tapped the options would be:
- Don't change behaviour (default)
- Disable automatic checking if enabled
- Disable auto. checking and warn if triggered manually

I admit, the wording can be improved, but this is just a proof of concept.

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
Data allowance eaten ;)

REPRODUCIBILITY:
(always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10)

Slightly related to bug 5184 (download settings management based on the current
active connection).
