Description Aleksey Nogin 1999-05-28 04:22:12 UTC
The bug report #2849 was updated twice by on
05/16/99 and the bug #965 was also updated by
on 05/16/99, but I did not receive any e-mails even though I
am the reporter of both bugs.

At first I thought that thos e-mails could be lost
somewhere. But after I've changed #2849 myself, I've got a
"Changed" e-mail from Bugzilla that included not only my
last change, but the previous changes as well. This
indicates that there is some problem in Bugzilla.

I get the same thing.  I just submitted a duplicate report (complete
with diffs) as #3203.

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2000-06-21 23:29:01 UTC
This is a big problem - Bugzilla only sends update e-mails when the status is
changed. But when the status stays the same, but a new comment is added, it
would not tell anybody! See also bug #3203

Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2000-07-11 05:59:58 UTC
No activity on this bug report... Does the problem still exist?

Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2000-07-11 06:04:17 UTC
I did receive the e-mail for the commit I did several minutes ago. Looks like
it's working!

Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2000-07-11 06:13:24 UTC
This is really weird. It works OK when I add comments to this bug, but when I
added a comment to bug report # 3203, Bugzilla din't send any e-mails...

Comment 6 David Lawrence 2000-08-03 21:07:45 UTC
There was a problem that Bugzilla was not sending out email notifications when
others that were neither the reporter or assignee was adding comments to bug
reports. I have hopefully fixed this now and this report should be reopened if
it is not the case.
