About proper bug-tagging, was: [Bug 25327] Typo in 'sum(a/b/c)' ....

Abel Braaksma
Hi Jim,

Apologies are all mine, only now I noticed the line in the Status section that you are talking about, and others may have missed it as well. Perhaps we could add a line in BugZilla, or even prevent it from being submitted of [xxx] is not at the start of a bug entry? I don't know what BugZilla is capable of, but from what I have seen so far, I think it is pretty arcane.

Many bugs I posted (and some by others too, as you have noticed) do not have such tagging.  I'm willing to go over them and rename them, but this might lead to a lot of unnecessary mail, so let me ask you first: should I? It probably only makes sense for non-closed bugs.

Cheers,
Abel

Abel,

If you have the time and inclination, then by all means go through
non-closed bugs and update the bug titles to include the [...]
notation for the documents to which they apply.

Obviously, it's not a top-priority job, but I find myself doing it
about every quarter or half-year.

Thanks!!
