Open, LowestPublic


There are different ways to generate links to Gerrit in Bugzilla comments. Ideally those links should be kept in Phabricator comments.

Gerrit Notification Bot posts plain URLs to announce new patches. Isn't this the most used type of link to Gerrit? Idf this is true, then the priority for this task would be lower.

See for instance

Qgil moved this task from Backlog to Ready To Go on the Bugzilla-Preview board.Oct 26 2014, 6:09 AM

It is probably the most used type by now. For the records, we introduced the Gerrit Notification Bot in Bugzilla on 2013-07-23. This is legacy stuff in the same way as some folks still expect r12345 to link to Special:CodeReview. :)

Qgil lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Low.Oct 27 2014, 5:01 PM

Ah, I wasn't aware of this important detail. If most links to gerrit changes are already now http links, then I think we can lower the priority of this task.

Qgil raised the priority of this task from Low to Normal.Oct 29 2014, 9:21 PM
Qgil edited projects, added Phabricator; removed Bugzilla-Preview, Bugzilla-Migration.

This task is not essential, it has a risk of overcomplicating the migration process, and it can be done afterward either with direct changes to the database or a bot.

Are you sure that a hash without an I is linked as a change-id and not git hash? It looks in like that it should be a git hash.

XZise: You're of course right, thank you! Could you adjust the table in the task summary here?

XZise added a comment.Jan 2 2015, 3:35 PM

I kind of already did?! it still links to gerrit but just without the I-prefix so in theory another commit. I could however use the git commit which is actually associated with the change id.

Ah, sorry. I missed the "edited the task description" here. Thanks!
