Description DEMAINE Benoît-Pierre, aka DoubleHP 2005-07-28 01:52:16 UTC
when I am in the CC of some bug, I receive feedback when other people add comments.

Here is the example of a recent mail I received:

------- Additional Comments From  2005-07-28 01:10 PDT
In reply to all those comments about enigmail failing on a new profile: This is
a known bug, and a different one, and a workaround is described in bug 84668
comment 7. Yes, this issue should be fixed as well (maybe by making enigmail an
ebuild of it's own), but it should not stop enigmail support in general.

it would be REALLY HELPFULL if those emails could include the # of the comment
in the thread ... because I hardly memorise bug numbers, but having the comment
# would help remember which bug it is about ... and refresh me if the comment I
add is a comment about a fresh bug (low #), or an old one (# larger than 8).

typically, I d expect something like:
in the header of the mail, or a line like:
------- New comment #25 From  2005-07-28 01:10 PDT -------

or maybe a differenc topic:
[Bug 99182] Comment #25 Re-include enigmail in mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-1.0.6

maybe not ... cause altering the subject could prevent easy sorting of mails for
advanced MUAs ...

but still ... plz find a way to introduce the comment number somewhere.

there isnt a way to become that granular in the email replies. there is no
variable for comment name/number or user who made such changes.

hmmm you are able to insert the comment in the mail ... cant you at least insert
the absolute URL ? 

like for this actual comment
if I am lucky :D
