Reporting a bug with an attachment produces two info alerts

Bug #249471 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2008-07-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

1. Report a bug with an attachment included.

What happens: The resulting page has two info alerts, "Thank you for your bug report" and "The file 'whatever' was attached to the bug report".

What should happen: The page has only one info alert, "Thank you for your bug report". An alert about an attachment should appear only if you attach a file to an existing bug report, without also adding a comment.

Fixing bug 271615 won't also fix this bug. See also bug 250561.

Well the extra notice about having an attachment never really bothered me, but I can see how it's a bit cluttery. I definitely agree the apport attachments notices stuff gets out of control.

Anyway, here's a patch that implements what is described in the description.

I didn't test this with apport, but the code tries to detect whether 1 or >1 attachment were provided. In the latter case it'll give the notice that "<N> files were attached to the bug report" which I think is most appropriate.

I've unduped this, as this isn't to do with the rendering of said notices, but the number and generation of them.
