Bug Description

Showing all bug reports for an identified package is useful. It may also be useful to show the subset of those bug reports that involve me -- those that were reported by me, or are assigned to me.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ContributorConsole#bugs>: "“Reports Involving Me” ... should be sensitive whenever the current package name is valid ... “Reports Involving Me” should open the page displaying the subset of those bug reports that involve you."

It might also be helpful to be able to get the code directly from the bug listing for the package/project a bug is reported in. If there are multiple packages and/or projects that a bug is reported for, the user could be prompted to choose which one to get the code from.

I don't think there is a way to use the Launchpad site to list bugs that are either assigned to or reported by the user - only the bugs that have all the conditions requested, not bugs that have one of the conditions. I asked on the #launchpad IRC channel, and was told the only way to do this would be to use the Python API and combine the two lists.

So, there are two options:

  1. Display two separate buttons, or just have a button to show bugs assigned to the user.

  2. Have a custom UI (no openning the Launchpad website) that lists the bugs that are assigned to or reported by the user (by using the API to combine the list of bugs from each query).

For now, should I just go with #1 and use the existing button ("Reports Involving Me") to open Launchpad to the list of bugs in the package that are assigned to the user?

I realize I'm an extreme, because I've reported 3783 bugs in Launchpad so far. But usually I don't remember whether a bug I've been involved with was one I reported, or that someone else reported first then I subscribed to or commented on.

@Matthew, that was to as the reporter and designer for the bug.

Sorry, typo in my last comment, that should have been:

@Matthew, the question was to you as you are the reporter and designer for the bug.
