Display bug resolutions on duplicates.cgi (to identify popular WONTFIXed requests)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Risker pointed out marking reports as a duplicate of a WONTFIXed report "without consideration to whether the continued reporting of the same problem from different users should be re-evaluated."

This is one thing that the duplicates statistics could be used for, but it currently does not display bug resolutions.

So we uncovered that the two most duplicated rejected requests are (ex aequo!) the two rather obscure:

Bug 9530 13 0 Parser WONTFIX trivial Low --- Section heading anchors shouldn't begin with invalid characters
Bug 2760 13 0 Page editing WONTFIX normal Low --- Clarify the "use external editor" preference

Where the latter was superseded by killing the preference in question altogether. Big fun!
