Patch author and owner swapped in gerritbot comments
Open, Needs TriagePublic


E.g. see T223738#5209107.

Change 512231 had a related patch set uploaded (by EBernhardson; owner: DCausse):

While commit has:

Author David Causse
Committer EBernhardson

That is a cherry pick from master that has been done by Ebernerhardson, once why he is listed in the by part. One can see it as the performer. The patch author was DCausse and is thus listed as the owner.

The patch on master had an edit:

Change 511455 had a related patch set uploaded (by Jforrester; owner: DCausse)

Author: David Causse
Committer: Jforrester

In that case its correct.

Commit also has "owner" field and I noted that gerritbot provides different owner in this comment.

If gerritbot can read author and committer field and "owner" is taken from author field, then I suppose it would be less confusing and sufficient if in this template "owner" was changed to "author".
