changelog close feature might miss some bugs

Bug Description

The upload of ubuntu-netbook-default-settings version 0.7.4 did not close bug 524333 even thought it was listed in Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed. I believe this is because bug 524333 is about 'ubuntu-netbook-remix-default-settings' and not ubuntu-netbook-default-settings. However, unrds is no longer a source package (so wouldn't have bugs filed about it) but a binary package provided by unds (where the bug would be expected to be found). I think that if the Launchpad-Bugs-Fixed bug numbers include a bug with a bug task about a binary package (which allows bug filing in Launchpad) the bug task should be closed by the janitor.

I wonder how many other left over open bugs like this there are too.

Brian, I'm not sure what can be done about this. Your analysis is about right, except that ubuntu-netbook-remix-default-settings is indeed a valid source package, it's just not in lucid. You're wrong in that you can file a bug on a binary package, it always resolves to the source on the bug task.

The Soyuz code right now simply hooks into the Bugs code and says "here's a bug number and a source package, please close the bugtask." Even it it were to use binary names on the package, "ubuntu-netbook-remix-default-settings" would resolve to the source on the development distro series, which is ubuntu-netbook-default-settings.

Deryck, do you have any ideas?

Unfortunately, I don't think I can help here. It's just a matter of being able to pass the correct target to bug.setStatus, which like you note seems pretty tough to work out from an ISourcePackageRelease.

Julian - Doesn't the distro series appear in the changelog though?

 ubuntu-netbook-default-settings (0.7.4) lucid; urgency=low

So if you were to look up the source package for that distro series you'd get the right source package correct?

I'm going to triage this to low for now because I have no ideas on what can be done. It requires some careful analysis by people who know the bugs code better than I do.
