Debbugs::Control(3) Routines for modifying the state of bugs

SYNOPSIS

use Debbugs::Control;

DESCRIPTION

This module is an abstraction of a lot of functions which originally were only present in service.in, but as time has gone on needed to be called from elsewhere.

All of the public functions take the following options:

debug --- scalar reference to which debbuging information is appended
transcript --- scalar reference to which transcript information is appended
affected_bugs --- hashref which is updated with bugs affected by this function

Functions which should (probably) append to the .log file take the following options:

requester --- Email address of the individual who requested the change
request_addr --- Address to which the request was sent
request_nn --- Name of queue file which caused this request
request_msgid --- Message id of message which caused this request
location --- Optional location; currently ignored but may be supported in the future for updating archived bugs upon archival
message --- The original message which caused the action to be taken
append_log --- Whether or not to append information to the log.

append_log (for most functions) is a special option. When set to false, no appending to the log is done at all. When it is not present, the above information is faked, and appended to the log file. When it is true, the above options must be present, and their values are used.

GENERAL FUNCTIONS

set_blocks

     eval {
            set_block(bug          => $ref,
                      transcript   => $transcript,
                      ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                      requester    => $header{from},
                      request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                      message      => \@log,
                      affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                      recipients   => \%recipients,
                      block        => [],
                     );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set blockers of $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Alters the set of bugs that block this bug from being fixed

This requires altering both this bug (and those it's merged with) as well as the bugs that block this bug from being fixed (and those that it's merged with)

block --- scalar or arrayref of blocking bugs to set, add or remove
add --- if true, add blocking bugs
remove --- if true, remove blocking bugs

set_tag

     eval {
            set_tag(bug          => $ref,
                    transcript   => $transcript,
                    ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                    requester    => $header{from},
                    request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                    message      => \@log,

                    recipients   => \%recipients,
                    tag          => [],
                    add          => 1,
                   );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set tag on $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets, adds, or removes the specified tags on a bug

tag --- scalar or arrayref of tags to set, add or remove
add --- if true, add tags
remove --- if true, remove tags
warn_on_bad_tags --- if true (the default) warn if bad tags are passed.

set_severity

     eval {
            set_severity(bug          => $ref,
                         transcript   => $transcript,
                         ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),

        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set the severity of bug $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets the severity of a bug. If severity is not passed, is undefined, or has zero length, sets the severity to the defafult severity.

reopen

                 );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set foo $ref bar: [email protected]";
        }

Foo frobinates

set_submitter

     eval {
            set_submitter(bug          => $ref,
                          transcript   => $transcript,
                          ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),

                          notify_submitter => 1,
                          );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set the forwarded-to-address of $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets the submitter of a bug. If notify_submitter is true (the default), notifies the old submitter of a bug on changes

set_forwarded

     eval {
            set_forwarded(bug          => $ref,
                          transcript   => $transcript,
                          ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                          requester    => $header{from},
                          request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                          message      => \@log,
                          affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                          recipients   => \%recipients,
                          forwarded    => $forward_to,
                          );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set the forwarded-to-address of $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets the location to which a bug is forwarded. Given an undef forwarded, unsets forwarded.

set_title

     eval {
            set_title(bug          => $ref,
                      transcript   => $transcript,
                      ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                      requester    => $header{from},
                      request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                      message      => \@log,

                      title        => $new_title,
                      );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set the title of $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets the title of a specific bug

set_package

     eval {
            set_package(bug          => $ref,
                        transcript   => $transcript,
                        ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                        requester    => $header{from},
                        request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                        message      => \@log,
                        affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                        recipients   => \%recipients,
                        package      => $new_package,
                        is_source    => 0,
                       );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to assign or reassign $ref to a package: [email protected]";
        }

Indicates that a bug is in a particular package. If is_source is true, indicates that the package is a source package. [Internally, this causes src: to be prepended to the package name.]

The default for is_source is 0. As a special case, if the package starts with 'src:', it is assumed to be a source package and is_source is overridden.

The package option must match the package_name_re regex.

set_found

     eval {
            set_found(bug          => $ref,
                      transcript   => $transcript,
                      ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                      requester    => $header{from},
                      request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                      message      => \@log,
                      affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                      recipients   => \%recipients,
                      found        => [],
                      add          => 1,
                     );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set found on $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets, adds, or removes the specified found versions of a package

If the version list is empty, and the bug is currently not ``done'', causes the done field to be cleared.

If any of the versions added to found are greater than any version in which the bug is fixed (or when the bug is found and there are no fixed versions) the done field is cleared.

set_fixed

     eval {
            set_fixed(bug          => $ref,
                      transcript   => $transcript,
                      ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                      requester    => $header{from},
                      request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                      message      => \@log,
                      affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                      recipients   => \%recipients,
                      fixed        => [],
                      add          => 1,
                      reopen       => 0,
                     );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to set fixed on $ref: [email protected]";
        }

Sets, adds, or removes the specified fixed versions of a package

If the fixed versions are empty (or end up being empty after this call) or the greatest fixed version is less than the greatest found version and the reopen option is true, the bug is reopened.

This function is also called by the reopen function, which causes all of the fixed versions to be cleared.

affects

     eval {
            affects(bug          => $ref,
                    transcript   => $transcript,
                    ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                    requester    => $header{from},
                    request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                    message      => \@log,
                    affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                    recipients   => \%recipients,
                    packages     => undef,
                    add          => 1,
                    remove       => 0,
                   );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to mark $ref as affecting $packages: [email protected]";
        }

This marks a bug as affecting packages which the bug is not actually in. This should only be used in cases where fixing the bug instantly resolves the problem in the other packages.

By default, the packages are set to the list of packages passed. However, if you pass add => 1 or remove => 1, the list of packages passed are added or removed from the affects list, respectively.

SUMMARY FUNCTIONS

summary

     eval {
            summary(bug          => $ref,
                    transcript   => $transcript,
                    ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                    requester    => $header{from},
                    request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                    message      => \@log,
                    affected_packages => \%affected_packages,
                    recipients   => \%recipients,
                    summary      => undef,
                   );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to mark $ref with summary foo: [email protected]";
        }

Handles all setting of summary fields

If summary is undef, unsets the summary

If summary is 0, sets the summary to the first paragraph contained in the message passed.

If summary is numeric, sets the summary to the message specified.

OWNER FUNCTIONS

owner

     eval {
            owner(bug          => $ref,
                  transcript   => $transcript,
                  ($dl > 0 ? (debug => $transcript):()),
                  requester    => $header{from},
                  request_addr => $controlrequestaddr,
                  message      => \@log,
                  recipients   => \%recipients,
                  owner        => undef,
                 );
        };
        if ([email protected]) {
            $errors++;
            print {$transcript} "Failed to mark $ref as having an owner: [email protected]";
        }

Handles all setting of the owner field; given an owner of undef or of no length, indicates that a bug is not owned by anyone.

ARCHIVE FUNCTIONS

bug_archive

     my $error = '';
     eval {
        bug_archive(bug => $bug_num,
                    debug => \$debug,
                    transcript => \$transcript,
                   );
     };
     if ([email protected]) {
        $errors++;
        transcript("Unable to archive $bug_num\n");
        warn [email protected];
     }
     transcript($transcript);

This routine archives a bug

bug --- bug number
check_archiveable --- check wether a bug is archiveable before archiving; defaults to 1
archive_unarchived --- whether to archive bugs which have not previously been archived; defaults to 1. [Set to 0 when used from [email protected]]
ignore_time --- whether to ignore time constraints when archiving a bug; defaults to 0.

bug_unarchive

     my $error = '';
     eval {
        bug_unarchive(bug => $bug_num,
                      debug => \$debug,
                      transcript => \$transcript,
                     );
     };
     if ([email protected]) {
        $errors++;
        transcript("Unable to archive bug: $bug_num");
     }
     transcript($transcript);

This routine unarchives a bug

append_action_to_log

     append_action_to_log

This should probably be moved to Debbugs::Log; have to think that out some more.

PRIVATE FUNCTIONS

__handle_affected_packages

     __handle_affected_packages(affected_packages => {},
                                data => [@data],
                               )

__handle_debug_transcript

     my ($debug,$transcript) = __handle_debug_transcript(%param);

Returns a debug and transcript filehandle

__bug_info

     __bug_info($data)

Produces a small bit of bug information to kick out to the transcript

__internal_request

     __internal_request()
     __internal_request($level)

Returns true if the caller of the function calling __internal_request belongs to __PACKAGE__

This allows us to be magical, and don't bother to print bug info if the second caller is from this package, amongst other things.

An optional level is allowed, which increments the number of levels to check by the given value. [This is basically for use by internal functions like __begin_control which are always called by "__PACKAGE__".

__begin_control

     my %info = __begin_control(%param,
                                archived=>1,
                                command=>'unarchive');
     my ($debug,$transcript) = @info{qw(debug transcript)};
     my @data = @{$info{data}};
     my @bugs = @{$info{bugs}};

Starts the process of modifying a bug; handles all of the generic things that almost every control request needs

Returns a hash containing

new_locks --- number of new locks taken out by this call
debug --- the debug file handle
transcript --- the transcript file handle
data --- an arrayref containing the data of the bugs corresponding to this request
bugs --- an arrayref containing the bug numbers of the bugs corresponding to this request

__end_control

     __end_control(%info);

Handles tearing down from a control request

__check_limit

     __check_limit(data => \@data, limit => $param{limit});

Checks to make sure that bugs match any limits; each entry of @data much satisfy the limit.

Returns true if there are no entries in data, or there are no keys in limit; returns false (0) if there are any entries which do not match.

The limit hashref elements can contain an arrayref of scalars to match; regexes are also acccepted. At least one of the entries in each element needs to match the corresponding field in all data for the limit to succeed.

die

     sig_die "foo"

We override die to specially handle unlocking files in the cases where we are called via eval. [If we're not called via eval, it doesn't matter.]
