bug#7449: 24.0.50; Problems with the bug-querying mechanism


From: Eli Zaretskii
Subject: bug#7449: 24.0.50; Problems with the bug-querying mechanism
Date: Sat, 20 Nov 2010 14:29:54 +0200

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list
and the gnu.emacs.bug news group, and at http://debbugs.gnu.org.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

The new feature for querying existing bugs is nice (thanks!), but it
needs some polishing, IMO:

 . It doesn't seem to handle non-ASCII (e.g., UTF-8) characters well.
   E.g., I get octal escapes in the description of bug#7373.

 . It seems not to support more than one keyword.  E.g., if I type
   either "cursor" or "overlay", I get the bug #6687 listed in the
   results, but if I type "cursor overlay", I get an empty list.  Did
   I understand the syntax of the keywords incorrectly?  (Btw, it
   would be nice to tell the expected syntax in the prompt.)

 . The "Report new bug" link does nothing except displaying a message
   in the echo area.  The code has a comment "TODO: Do something!";
   what it should do is simply invoke `report-emacs-bug' (unless I'm
   missing something), perhaps after checking if there's already a bug
   report in progress.

 . The header line of the query results ("Already known bugs") should
   IMO show in parens the keywords used for the query, for reference.

 . How about doing this automatically, using the bug subject as the
   keywords?  Or at least suggest running the query before the bug
   description buffer is created and displayed?

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
