Batch email processing seems to just plain not work.

Asked by Andy Matuschak on 2008-06-02

I've been trying to use the batch email processing to close a bunch of bugs now that I've made a release, and it seems to just plain not work: no email response whatsoever, one day later.

Here's the email:

This is because you have put only one space before "bug" and before "status". So you should write, for example:
  bug 236235
  status fixreleased
Instead of:
 bug 236235
 status fixreleased

Thank you!

Oh, does one have to use two characters to indent these commands? https://help.launchpad.net/BugTrackerEmailInterface says at least one is required; I presumed this included 1.

"The commands, affects, status, etc., must each be indented at least one space character."

Thanks Andrea Corbellini, that solved my question.

Hi Andy,

are you sure that worked? The email interface should work with a single space. I believe your email didn't work because of bug 79535

Mm, Diogo is right. I was almost sure it accepted only two spaces, sorry.

Yeaaaaaaah, it actually doesn't work at all. Still broken, but because of a known bug, so the question's resolved. Thanks!
