Re: need help: some words is not easy to understand in /Bugs/server-request


i now understand that the page is not about _submitting_ bugs but rather
for operating the bug tracker.
In that light, Brian's statement would indeed explain the meaning.

If this theory is correct, i'd prepend a half sentence to the original

  "Other than with submitting a bug report,
   the Subject of the message is ignored, except for generating the
   Subject of the reply."

I lookied up some control action in closed bugs.
The message
indeed has a subject which does not show up on the bug page:

Have a nice day :)
