Suggestion regarding Skara /approval command

Hi Erik,

thanks for these insights. Regarding the laziness of requestors, I think we can handle it. If a comment is too short of content we’ll anyway ask the submitter for more info. But in most cases of multiple issues, I guess it’s possible/ok/desirable to have one text to explain them all.

So I’ll open a ticket for this.

If you as maintainers would prefer it that way, we can certainly change it. I wasn't sure which way to go with that. My assumption was that it would encourage people to be lazy and just add the same text to multiple bugs, when each of them were likely to require individual motivations.

Note that for the maintainer, the /approve command already approves all associated bugs if no bugid is given.

I had thought about the same issue.
/approval all request
would be another nice solution to this.
And similarly /approve all yes.

Best regards,

I have a small suggestion for the great new approval feature in Skara.

Currently, when a PR refers to multiple JBS issues, I have to request approval for each of them with a distinct “/approval request JDK-<nnn>” command. However, since the approval text that I’d add to each of the items in such a case would often be the same, I’d like to suggest that in such cases an “/approval request” without bug ids adds the label and text to all of the referred bugs. Do you think this makes sense? If yes, I can create an issue for that.
