Bug#170630: debbugs: please have control bot report what tags applied to a bug before the change
Version: unavailable; reported 2002-11-25
I recently suffered (yet another) fit of dyslexia when manipulating an
XFree86 bug via the BTS's control bot.
It was easy to revert the reassign and retitle commands, because the
control bot helpfully lets you know what the old package assignment and
title was when it sends you the ack for the new ones.
However, the control bot does not at present report what the tags were
on the bug before you changed them. One has to go look up the report to
find out, and this is error-prone. (These are the same people who
transposed digits in the bug number in the first place.)
Please have the control bot mention what the existing tags were on the
bug, as well as acking the tags that were added, removed, or set.
