Bug Description

It seems that the Jira plugin doesn't persist its preferences correctly. Looking at the code, it looks like it tries to save the base URL and the list of projects in the preferences, but it loads them from GConf...

The attached patch seems to fix it for me.

The patch looks good to me, is a project maintainer able to commit it to the mainline?

This should actually be fixed in a branch that I'm working on for Mono.Addins configuration extension points. I ended up rewriting all of Jira's preferences.

When can we expect to have this patch in a release? Seems a waste to have a perfectly good patch just sitting there doing nothing for almost a year when it could just be merged in.

This one's been sitting around here stale for quite some time. I've created a bug under gnome-do-plugins package for ubuntu project referencing this bug and patch in the hopes it gets merged there at least. I suppose if Launchpad was built on Jira instead it would have been fixed years ago ;)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Do
2. Using the pulldown, navigate to the Jira plugin and hit configure
3. Fill in the settings, hit save and then bring up the configuration again

It would probably be best if we could get this fixed upstream, as they seem to have two different fixes pending. I'll see if I can't give the upstream bug a little nudge.

Any progress on this bug? We've just had this reported in Fedora 18 so it seems to still be hanging around. Would the initial patch be the recommended fix if we were to patch this on the distro side, or should we perhaps cherry pick from the branch with the Jira preferences rewrite (assuming that's available)?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
bug.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
