we should never do bug redirects to disabled products

Bug #153763 reported by Christian Reis
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Visit the URL:


It redirects to:


Which is a 404. It's tricky in this case because that product is disabled and the bug only has one context.

It may save time to fix this bug at the same time as bug 2816.

I can't fix that bug either! +editstatus only exists under that specific product.

Suggested pseudocode to fix this bug and bug 2816:

if there are any non-disabled contexts:
    if the bug is open for any of those contexts (New, Incomplete, Confirmed, Triaged, or In Progress):
        redirect to the open context where the bug was filed earliest
        redirect to the context where the bug was filed earliest
    return a 404 without redirecting anywhere

("Where the bug was filed earliest" ensures that <http://launchpad.net/bugs/1> should redirect to <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1>, not to the context for any of that bug's groupie projects.)

Changed in malone:
milestone: none → 2.2.1

importance: Undecided → Low
