Subscribed to other affected projects I am uninterested in

Asked by Bryan Quigley on 2008-11-06

For instance:

It has been fixed in Ubuntu and Debian, two distros I care about. I'm done with this bug, but I don't really want to unsubscribe. The reason it still exists in my related bugs is because a project I don't care about has it as affecting them. Is there any way I can not get these bugs on my related page without doing a custom search every time?

This happens to me a lot:
(, and because I try to review this page on a regular basis, it slows me down.

Hello Bryan,

I am afraid your question is not as crystal clear as it could be :)

Do you want bugs to be related to you only if they have not been fixed in the projects you care about? AFAIK we don't offer that level of granularity.

Or is it something else you had in mind? Please elaborate if so.

Fixed bugs don't appear in the category.

I want some way to opt out of watching a certain project who is affected by a bug. Right now if the bug affects 30 linux distros, all 30 and their status will be listed on my related bugs page.

Okay, I had a chat with Bjorn about your question just now. It is actually pretty interesting if a bit complicated to address. Bjorn and I feel that one way to implement this that wouldn't be a big hack would be:

  1. To allow you to in the advanced search form select projects which you cared about
  2. To allow saving an advanced search as "your" search criteria for bugs.l.n/~you
  3. To display clearly on that page what the criteria was and easily allowed you to change it

One question for #2 is whether a third party visiting that page should see your search criteria or their own or some other default.

Bjorn says he's going to help me find bugs to cover this work, so over to him. Meanwhile, does this sound like it would fix the issue for you?

That sounds great to me.
For #2 I think it make sense for them to see how I have it set up.

Hi Bryan,
if you are satisfied with the answer, could you please be so kind and mark the question as solved? This way it will not come up in the list of open questions. Thank you!

Ok... that will solve my problem if and when it is implemented. Thanks.
