How can I stop people changing bugs status?

Asked by Pietry on 2009-07-28

How can I prevent people not appointed as drivers for my project ( eg. normal users ) from changing the status of my bugs?
It's quite annoying for simple users to keep changing the status of my bugs from invalid to new all the time. I want to let the driver team to be the only one who can change this .
Your help is appreciated !

Hi Pietry,

There is no way to prevent users from editing bug statuses. Two bug statuses - Triaged and Won't Fix - are reserved for bug supervisors, but there is nothing to prevent a user from changing the status again (and neither of those statuses can be used as substitutes for Invalid anyway).

I suggest you email the users that are doing this directly (or via "Contact this user" on their profile page). Explain that their behaviour is disruptive to the project, and politely ask them to stop doing it. If they continue to misuse bug reports on your project, please come back to us.

Well thank you for your input but I don;t think I have the luxury to kindly ask anybody vandalizing my bugs page to stop doing it. Perhaps you guys here at launchpad can find a way to stop this kind of acts.
