Default Show status changes in bug mail subject

Hi all,

for long bug mail threads it would be very helpful at times if the bug
mail subject would contain status changes. This makes it easier to see
if a bug was already fixed, marked as a duplicate, or closed as
invalid, without needing to read the entire thread.

This should be similar to the already existing [NEW] tag:

Launchpad Bug Tra └─>[Bug 225989] [NEW] /etc/sudoers is commented wrong

E. g. if I see this:

09:40 John Mitchell [Bug 219035] Re: Audacious not launching anymore in Hardy 8.04

it would have been much quicker for me if it would have said

09:40 John Mitchell [Bug 219035] [Duplicate] Re: Audacious not launching anymore in Hardy 8.04

or

Launchpad Bug Tra └─>[Bug 225989] [Invalid] /etc/sudoers is commented wrong

What do other people think about this? If there is a general
agreement, I'll file this as a wishlist bug against Malone.

Thanks,

Martin

It would also be handy to have the package name somewhere in the mails, though it may be a bit cramped to put it in the subject.

This doesn't actually show status changes (transitions), but the final
status (and even that with some fudging, since duplicate isn't a
status). Is that really what users want?

Right, the new status would be enough for my purpose, since I see the
history in the bug trail (previous mails). Other people might have
different preferences, of course.

>(and even that with some fudging, since duplicate isn't a

Right, that's a special case, but it would be utterly useful IMHO.

Thanks,

Martin

I filed it as a bug now:
