Neil McGovern asked me to add an additional feature to the BTS to support tracking the current status of attempts at fixing a bug. In past releases, we've used the nice commenting feature of bts.turmzimmer.net to keep track of what is going on in a particular nasty RC bug, who is working on it, and what needs to be done next (or if everyone can just ignore the bug).
This feature should probably have already been in the BTS to start
with, but now it is. In addition to the existing summary feature,
where you can nominate a message or text to be the summary for a bug,
there is an
outlook command, which tracks the current status of the
bug, and behaves in exactly the same way:
outlook 12345 not good outlook 54321 0 thanks I'm totally stymied by #54321.
