Re: The chronoilogicallly ordered bug pages
I'd also like to state on this forum my *reasons* for not
wanting a reverse chronological listing.
The reverse chronological listing has some validity for things
like a changelog. I usually read a changelog is I a very interested
in the package, and I suually do so for subsequent releases. Most of
the new changes are at the top, and I'm only interested in what has
changed since the last version. Each entry in a changelog is rarely
related to older entries.
Bug reports, like correspondence, usually buildup a thread of
conversaton, and I usually like to follow the htread to the
end. Unlike changelogs, I find that the reverse chronolofical listing
of bug repoorts is a nuisance in more cases than not.
I realize this sounds like mere personal preference, but
reverse chronological listing in changelogs save me time, on the
average, while reverse chronological listings in bug reports do not,
they just irritate me mildly.
