Closing a task which blocks other tasks sends an email about the wrong transaction set
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This would make emails from tasks more useful, and I didn't find an existing task asking for it yet?

Steps to repro

  1. On an existing task, scroll to bottom
  2. Change action="change status", status="resolved"
  3. Add some comments, submit

Desired behavior
The email to subscribers should include both the status change & the new comments

Current behavior
Only the status change gets included in the email

Just testing.

I can't reproduce this. Here are the mails I received from my comments above:

You can see the comments are included in the mail body.

Is your install extremely out of date (months old)?

Ah, this only happens with blocking tasks. Lemme update the description. In the screenshot, the "Resolving a blocking task now" comment didn't get included in the email.

Ah, that looks like a bug. Thanks, I'll take a look.

epriestley renamed this task from When using "add comment" box on a task to change status & add a comment at the same time, the summary email only includes status info and doesn't include the new comment to Closing a task which blocks other tasks sends an email about the wrong transaction set.Jul 30 2014, 11:58 PM

Cool, thanks for taking a look!

This should be fixed in HEAD. Thanks for the report and helping to narrow it down, it was very helpful in getting the issue fixed. Let us know if you run into anything else!

(If you don't deploy regularly, I'll deploy to this host in a minute if you want to see if you can still repro.)
