[icf-dev] Issuezilla attributes

  • Hi,

    maybe Issuezilla should offer numeric-format (and date-format) as a

    standard attribute to issues (like OS and platform). As with the start

    of the repository mantenance tool internationalisation issues are often

    more complex than expected. I guess that might be a valuable information

    for the developer the issue gets assigned to.

    (As some issues might only be reproducable with European settings)

    And on the other hand, a user covering the problem might not be able to

    decide if it might be an internationalisation issue and will not enter

    this useful information.

    Just my thoughts,

    Mike

  • great thoughts - we just cannot change issuezilla unfortunately. The best we

    can hope for at the moment is that people remember to add their session info

    to the bug and highlight their date and number formats. If nothing is

    available, we will likely assume American !

    We do however have a lot of code in the framework to try and resolve these

    types of issues, so hopefully there should not be too much more of them

    around - but they can be nasty ones to find when they appear.

    Thanks
