Re: Debbugs and ACK messages
I'm no longer on this list, but was looking over the web archives.
Anyhow, just FYI: the GCC folks have had to block firstname.lastname@example.org from
sending to the GCC bug-reporting addresses because of this auto-ack problem.
What apparently has been happening is that a Debian developer will forward
a gcc bug to GNATS, but include the nnnn@bugs address, then when the gcc
people make a change, gnats generates an email, which goes to debbugs,
which responds with "information FILED blah blah blah," which goes to gnats,
which generates an email...
Lather, rinse, repeat.
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
