Default It Works fine <--- THIS IS WRONG

What is wrong with the subject? You dislike good news?
It's not a matter of liking nor disliking good news Karl. Let me
ask you this: would you prefer all your USPS mail come in plain white
envelopes with your name on it? Or would it be better, easier, more
convenient, sensible, to have a company logo on the envelope, or a
sender's address? Would you rather walk in the grocery store and stand
in an isle looking at shiny metal cans, or would them having a label on
them make more sense to you?


It's about information Karl, it's about a label, it's about helping
others help you. Having a descriptive label on your e-mails will help
everyone else figuring out what your message is about and how to help
you. At this point (and in the past), all you've been is a nuisance in
the sense that you post something that's nothing.


Your subject line of 'It works fine.' doesn't tell me, 'Oh, Karl has
a problem with a possible rootkit.' Get with the program Karl.

Default It Works fine <--- THIS IS WRONG

My issue with such subject lines is how do I quickly filter out what
is interesting/important to read and what is not. With a subject line
"It works fine" I don't know what the OP is talking about until I open
it. If the OP is talking about bash scripting for example then I'm
interested. But if it's about Sendmail (which I don't run) then I'm
not as interested and might read it if I have a few extra minutes. If
it's about some other aspect of Linux which I have no interest in then
I won't read it at all. But I can't make that determination with a
subject line like that...

And as pointed out if you are asking for help you are going to miss
out on it because some who could help won't even open such messages.

Jacques B.

Hi there, again.=20
New thread, new question.

As all of we know, there ain't an easy way to do email identity validation.
Still, we really on email to post/comment to Launchpad.

=46or an user to post on LP, via web browser, he as to authenticate him/her=
self with his/her credentials under an SSL cert.

But ANYONE can just send any comment via email to a Bug report or Answer, b=
y simply replying to a static LP address.
Any identity can be easy forged, AFAICS, and cause temporary missinformatio=
n by seeming a legit source of information.

It would not be very nice to see fake comments from Mark or any other Canon=
ical member adding feedback to LP.

I can suggest one idea: sent emails should have a "salt" part that would be=
specific to every user and every bug.
That way it would not be as easy for someone to just forge the To field.
I also know, that this implementation would require a lot of new coding to =
the email system, and a really large database table just to store the relat=
ion of userid, bug/answer and salt.
But Security and Trust should be taken into account.

Thanks for you time, hope this helps and shed some light on this subject.


PS: is there any test server, where one could do this time of tests (forgin=
g To, OpenSPF, etc) ?

Hi there.
I've found this behavior and would like to get some feedback before opening=
a Bug on LP.

I'm currently an user on the edge server.
If I go to https://launchpad.net on a PC that has no previous cookies or se=
ssions, and type my login, I get redirected to https://edge.launchpad.net

There, i'm required to login again. So it seems that the cookie (on Firefox=
2.0.0.11 both Ubuntu Hardy and Windows XP) is not set for both path/domain=
s.

Then, after using edge.LP.net, if I try to logout, edge session terminates,=
but LP.net does not, and I have no way to logout from there, because every=
time I get to LP.net it just redirects me to edge.LP.net.

Can this be fixed?

Thanks in advance.
