+packagebugs could have a 'Has patch' column

Bug #283097 reported by Emilio Pozuelo Monfort
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

It would be useful to be able to go to bugs with patches from +packagebugs. That would make it easy to find bugs which may need sponsorship or triage from a developer (specially for those who are subscribed to the package, since they have more chances of knowing the code).

I've developed a launchpadlib-based tool that does a report like this:


Some lessons learned from my use of this...

 * Knowing the age of the patch (and being able to sort by patch age) is quite handy. Recently added patches are high priorities for sponsoring work, while extremely old patches are priorities for triaging/bug cleanup work.

 * It is very helpful to see a report for patches on all packages a team is subscribed to, since it reveals patches on packages I care about but don't look at very often. You can already get a listing of bugs-with-patches for specific packages via the search tool.

 * I would *love* to be able to link to the patch itself from my report. Currently this doesn't seem to be feasible to do through launchpadlib. See bug #281476

Actually that should be bug #424666

See bug #506018 for work on a "+patches" report (not sure it will directly address what the OP is proposing, but it's definitely related).

Okay, I think this is not quite a duplicate of bug #506018. Rather, Emilio is talking about adding a "Has patch" column to the +packagebugs report for a person. That's pages like these:


...etc. Presumably, a "Has patch" column would mean showing all the (open) bugs for that package that have a patch attachment.

I'm not assigning this to any milestone right now, but am leaving the 'patch-tracking' tag on. If someone (Emilio?) wants to implement this, though, please go for it -- we're standing by to help. See https://dev.launchpad.net/ for how to get started.
