this bug affects upstream

Asked by Jonh Wendell

When i click on "this bug affects upstream", i can't see on list the Sourceforge bugtracker.

I've opened a bug on sourceforge and i'd like to link it into malone.

How do i do that?

Hi Jonh,

this is bug which is already fixed in our current development branch. That fix will likely reach production servers this week.

As a workaround for it, you would need to register the SourceForge bugtracker for the given project individually. You can see a list of already registered bugtrackers here:

Thank you for your report,

That link appears to be broken. Is the ability to register and link to* upstream bugtrackers obsoleted or just in a different place?

*- I can't seem to find the ability to link to an upstream bugtracker on a bug report page.

The link that Matsubara provided originally is now at -- I should know, I look at it every single day!

You can't do it from the bug report page -- for good reason, too.
Launchpad only lets you report bugs against projects that use Launchpad
for bug tracking -- Ubuntu is one such example project (a distribution,
in fact).

Once the bug has been reported, you can then indicate it "Also Affects"
another project. There is a link under the task table on the bug page
that lets you do that. That link lets you connect that bug to an
upstream bugtracker.

Thanks for your reply! That certainly did the trick.
