#52957 new defect

buildbot notification mails have wrong To: with non-ASCII encoding

Reported by: raimue (Rainer Müller) Owned by: admin@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: buildbot/mpbb Version: 2.3.5
Keywords: buildbot Cc: mojca (Mojca Miklavec)


I just received this notification from the buildbot:

Subject: buildbot failure in MacPorts on base-10.10_x86_64
Date: Fri, 25 Nov 2016 14:18:36 -0600
To: "Rainer Müller <>"

As raw header:

To: =?utf-8?q?Rainer_M=C3=BCller_=3Craimue=40macports=2Eorg=3E?

Looks like something did not recognize this format and appended a default email domain.

At least the envelope recipient was correct, or I would not have received the mail at all.

This looks like an upstream bug in buildbot to me (but I'm not 100% sure).

I'm almost sure that this comes from git committer, but I have no clue why was added. Maybe we didn't configure the buildbot correctly, I can imagine that one might want to add something like if we were using subversion with plain usernames like raimue. But in case of git the buildbot should not add anything at the end.

We certainly don't do any black magic with emails. Sending of emails for base builder is fully automated (we didn't do any local modification at all).

Do you see the same problem for port failures, or only for base failures?

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by raimue (Rainer Müller)

Build failures for ports are not sent to the commit authors, where the real name would come from. Notifications to the port maintainer address do not contain a real name and look fine.
