Package: bugs.debian.org
Version: N/A; reported 2001-04-01
Severity: wishlist

  The subject says it all.  Several times I have mistakenly filed a bug
against the wrong package which was already filed multiple times.  The
package maintainer had properly reassigned these bugs to the package
they belonged to, which meant that my check of "was this bug filed against
this package?" failed.

  My specific suggestion is that a new "class" of bugs (from the user's
point of view) be created, "reassigned" bugs.  These would be listed after
open bugs, and would include any bug which was initially assigned to the
package but was subsequently reassigned to another package.


  1) User X files a bug against package Y.

  2) The maintainer of package Y determines that the error lies in package Z.

  3) The maintainer of package Y reassigns the bug to package Z.

  4) User W, while browsing the bug list for package Y, notices that
    his [0] bug has already been reported and reassigned to Z.  (it is
    listed under "Normal bugs - reassigned")  W refrains from filing a
    duplicate.  Y's maintainer has to do less work, Z's maintainer has
    to do less work, and everyone is happy. [1]

The (now not so new) affects feature deals with this class of bugs,
where a bug affects a package which it was originally assigned to, but
was then reassigned to the correct package.
