|Title||Long descriptions aren't replicated by Bugzilla integration|
|Assigned user||Nick Barnes|
|Description||In Bugzilla, bugs have short descriptions (called "Summary" in the web interface) and long descriptions. Each bug may have many long descriptions; they carry a timestamp and are displayed in date order. They also carry user names.|
Currently these long descriptions are not replicated. Perhaps they should be; the short description can be too short and/or misleading.
Note that it is not possible to edit or delete long descriptions from the Bugzilla web interface; only to submit new descriptions to be appended.
|Analysis||Getting the long descriptions for a bug is easy enough, and they can be squirted into a Description field in Perforce with some sort of structure to separate description records. But replicating a change back from Perforce could be a challenge. We could do it by refusing changes which are not simply additions to the end of the structured Description field (such additions can be handled by adding a long description row). But will this lead to too many failed replications?|
It's essential to analyse this and decide whether it's important for users. RB 2000-11-29
