When Launchpad Janitor closes a bug due to a package upload, the message should link to that upload page

Bug #284707 reported by Steve Beattie on 2008-10-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Consider bug 216601. An upload occurred that referenced the bug, so Launchpad Janitor closed the bug with the comment at


However, if I wish to review the debdiff for that change, I have to go to the package overview page and and search through the versions listed there to find the specific one referenced in the comment; I have to click again once I find it to go to the specifics of that checkin, which has its own page at


What would be ideal is if, in the closure comment (at least as displayed on the website) linked the version of the upload to the landing page for that upload; e.g. in the comment above, if one of the references to 2.24-2ubuntu1 were a hyperlink to the second page above.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure if this a malone or soyuz task. I'm setting to malone for now and Bjorn can assess better.

Changed in soyuz:
