P4DTI issue job000164

TitleAn issue may considered fixed in a release when in fact it isn't
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionThe known-issues.py script is supposed to build a list of known issues with a release. It may consider an issue to have been fixed at the time a release was made when in fact the issue was only in the process of being fixed at the time the release was made.
AnalysisThe script runs "p4 fixes -i //filespec" to get a list of fixes integrated into the product source; it then selects the fixes whose status is closed. However, the fixes query also returns fixes linked to pending changelists. These fixes have not yet been made, but the query still returns them. The script needs to discard fixes to pending changelists.
I made this "nice" because I believe such a situation to be very rare.
It turns out that although "p4 fixes" includes fixes to pending changelists, "p4 fixes //filespec/..." does not. So this isn't actually a bug in the script. GDR 2001-02-21.
