#9797 Please set bugzilla assignee for udev to systemd-maint@redhat.com
Closed: Fixed a year ago by pingou. Opened 2 years ago by zbyszek.

  • Describe the issue
    Udev package was merged into systemd and retired 8 years ago. People still file bugs against udev component. The bugs are assigned to extras-orphan@ and nobody looks at them. Every year or so I reassign them manually to systemd and then maybe somebody looks at them. Users have a bad experience of bugs being completely ignored.

Bugs files against udev should be somehow reassigned to systemd. Setting the assignee seems the easiest option, but there might be a better option.

(I cannot edit "Bugzilla assignee" under https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/udev.)

  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)
    No hurry.

  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)
    Maybe another 8 years?

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?
    Confused users.

Hi @zbyszek, I have set the Fedora Bugzilla assignee to systemd-maint. I am not sure if some automation scripts won't pick it up and change back to orphan since the package is retired.
Please reopen this issue if that happened.

@zbyszek For "python" we have blocked the component in Bugzilla. You might want to do the same with "udev".

Thanks! Let's see it goes.

Oh, how do I do that?

I cannot locate the proper email about this :(

However I vaguely recall @kevin was involved.

If that would be possible, I think we should make blocking of bugzilla for retired packages part of SOP. Most of the time people file those by mistake.

Oh, cool. I tried to file a bug against udev just now and got "This component is inactive.". It seems that the bugs I reassigned today must have been filed before this went active in April.
