Bug Description

A distribution source package row of a bugtask table has a tooltip giving information about the latest upload of a package. Unfortunately this is really the latest upload - even if that happens to be a security upload to Dapper. I'm not likely to want to know about that.

It should probably show the getCurrentSourceRelease for the development focus of the distro.

Hi William,

can you give a bug as an example? What's SPP? Source Package published?

Thanks for the report.

See bug #83335, for example. Hovering over "vlc (Ubuntu)" gives a tooltip with the latest upload - a security update to Hardy. It should show the details for 0.9.3-0ubuntu1, the latest version number.

I'm bumping this to high as it has performance implications in busy distro bugs: we may save considerable time by getting rid of the distro level lookups.

I ended up touching the related code but not fixing the actual issue *I think*. Anyhow, still needs doing, and its still horribly confusing.
