Are files migrated from Bugzilla being attributed to their authors?
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I tried to find files authored by someone other than bzimport at but I could not find any. This could be because the current sample contains no files from the current users (plausible, I haven't uploaded many files in Bugzilla) or it could be because files are not being attributed by their authors as of yet.

Do we really want to support that search for imported files? Doesn't sound very common to me.

I think it's important to get attribution right.

My understanding of this is that you can't get a list of uploads for yourself from BZ, the best it offers is a list of issues. This would be roughly equivalent to the subscribed issues list for users.

The context issue is:


Then obviously the author gets set via metadata to the actual user if they ever join. It seems equivalent to me?

Agreed. We seem to be good, then.

You can search for issues by attachment author. Here's my ones attached to open bugs

this search feature really doesn't exist either way actually in phab then

It is a compromise we can assume, I think.

Correct. Still you get a list of bug reports as the result for your query, not a list of attachments. And that should roughly equal in tasks that you are interested in anyway (and CC'ed on or commented on).
