maemo.org Bugzilla – Bug 6914
Allow commenter to follow comments on a package under testing

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
maemo.org/packages/[a package in the QA queue]
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Login to maemo.org/packages
2. go to a package in the QA queue.
3. Make a comment
Get an email notification when there is another comment made on the package.
Subsequent comments are not notified. Testers/Commenters are required to check
each package again for responses to the comments.
This is a wasteful and time-consuming procedure during the testing/rating
process. I frequently post comments and questions on a package, witholding the
vote until the author/maitainer or others respond. Checking each package that
was commented on manually is not efficient. And of course, the snail-pace of
the website make matters worse.
A solution along the lines of auto opt-in notification (after placing a
comment) would simplify the testing process. This could be extended to cases
where a vote is made without a comment.

This has now been implemented in the Midgard end and waiting for deployment.
Any chance to get the functionality online? Or is it online and just buggy.
I'm able to check a box to get a notification but I never get one.
1. the check box should be selected by default (Should this be an extra
2. I checked it should work. Hence reopening this bug report.
As written in comment #2 this is implemented but does not work. It is IMHO one
of the most required functions so it would be great if someone could
investigate this. Thanks
I did receive followup comments by email yesterday after commenting on a
package in non-free testing (mycontacts), hence for me it works.
Just received a reply myself today (on pygtkeditor), not sure what changed...
