Can't you read bugnotes?

By: scaredycat (scaredycat) 2004-03-21 19:52:35.000-0600

Yes I can, but there was no reason to close it.. it's still a valid feature request

By: Tilghman Lesher (tilghman) 2004-03-22 11:40:20.000-0600

It's a valid feature request, which is why the bug was closed, but not deleted.  If you wish to contribute a patch, you can reopen bug ASTERISK-5.

1. Can't reopen 0000009 as there is no "reopen" button that's why I created 0001265...

2. Why was it closed? Surely the point is to keep open un-added features until they are either added or a decision has been made never to add them.

3. DTMF caller id is used in Finland, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, India, Belgium, Sweden, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay so affects a lot of people.

Simply closing a feature request is akin to a helpdesk pretending a call is solved when it isn't.

I'd rather Mark concentrated on fixing bugs rather than adding feature requests, but it shouldn't mean that feature requests should just be closed. I'm happy for it to sit on the long term 'todo' list but closing doen't allow any feedback for solutions/work arounds

I'm quite happy to take on board any logical reasons anyone has for closing it, but I've seen nothing that suggests any real reason for it being closed.

No the new policy which has yet to be totally hashed out is to keep feature requests off the bug tracker.  Your bug nuber 9 was on my list to add to that facility when we get it figured out.   We do not need feature request clutter on mantis.

ok, fair enuff, by until now no one has said that. Perhaps the 'feature' option should be removed.. and perhaps the new policy announced...


By: Tilghman Lesher (tilghman) 2004-03-22 18:50:27.000-0600

No, features which have patches on Mantis are still welcome, as they can be either approved, applied, and closed; or rejected and closed.

It's the feature requests that need to go elsewhere.

Ya this topic is very hot right now since we now have an army of bug marshals (THANK YOU EVERYONE) and a bug marshal IRC channel (#asterisk-bugs) we will get this hashed out this week I think! :)

Need DTMF clip in Sweden, moving this to thte new "Feature Requests category".

DTMF based caller id is used in Brazil, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, India, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Sweden & Uruguay

You'd think with the number of countries using it it'd get some priority..

I have $13.06 USD in my paypal account - ok, it's not much of a bounty... but I'm skint... I think Florian is also offering a $25 bounty on this too - so that's a massive (:P) $38.06

If I get any more donations from my guide page within the next 30 days you can have those too... (although judging by the hit:donation ratio [300000:1] don't bet on anything more)

FYI: There is a bounty on this:

Small bounty so far, but I'm sure there are many people who would like to contribute ;)

By: scaredycat (scaredycat) 2004-05-29 17:15:17

I think I mentioned Florians bounty too, didn;t I?

By: flavour (flavour) 2004-05-30 05:45:59

Yes, sorry - I think our posts must have overlapped - now sure exactly how with the timestamps (maybe I was digging out the reference for ages ;) )
NB Florian's is EUR 25 so USD 30 ;)
