#15210 closed enhancement (fixed)

Idea: add Trac field for name of port

Description

It would be a good idea to have a Trac field for port name.

Possible uses:

  • Users could exactly specify which ports are affected, when creating tickets.
  • Maintainers could keep better track of what bugs a specific port has.
  • Users facing problems with a port could more easily search for existing bugs involving that port.
  • Committers might not have to manually cc maintainers: this could (in principle) be automated.

_wms thought this would be a good idea and asked me to create this ticket so that he would get to it eventually :-)

I think it would be nice to also display the list of maintainers as an read-only field once we get this. This will be useful for a quick check if the submitted patch comes from a maintainer and therefore can be committed.

I've added a text field labeled "Port". I'll have to think about how to automate some of the things mentioned above (maintainers and such).

Great! It would also be desirable for the "Port" field to accept only valid port names.

Replying to shreevatsa.public@…:

It would also be desirable for the "Port" field to accept only valid port names.

The ticket might be a submission of (or a request for) a new port, in which case the Port field wouldn't contain the name of an existing port. So we could just enforce validation for defect, update and enhancement tickets, but really, I think we've done ok over the years since the Port field was added without it being validated.

I assume this falls under Ryan now.

We do have a custom port field for quite a while. I am not aware that any problems occurred without validation of the port names. I consider the original request of this ticket fixed.
