Re: [tycho-dev] Marking bugs with patches

One advantage of using [patch] in the summary is that you can use the flag as a dynamic workflow state. For Mylyn we remove the [patch] tag once a patch has been merged or it has been determined that a patch needs to be revised for instance. If you search for patch attachments you will always get all bugs with attached patches regardless of state.

We use [patch] in the bug summary because it's easy to filter for patches in the Mylyn Task List that way and the whiteboard is nested in a section in the task editor requiring more clicks to edit.

Just my two cents.

Jan just asked me about a way to find bugs with attached patches. There doesn't seem to be an easy, reliable way to do this, so we figured that flagging is the best solution.

Therefore we propose to add the keyword "hasPatch" to the whiteboard field of bugs with patches/contributions.
