Include how-to link on bug report page
S5 - Suggestion
When creating an issue it would be useful to have the following link available on the create issue pages:
I myself still check it out regularly to aid in determining the priority of an issue.
Interestingly enough, this link is included on the top when creating a new project (https://musescore.org/node/add/project-project) instead of on submitting a new issue to the issue tracker.
Hmm, I believe I had seen it on https://musescore.org/en/node/add/project-issue/musescore too, some while ago?
Cleary this was place wrong. Removed it from the new project form, and moved it to the new issue form.
I don't see it there?
Unless the 'new' issue form Thomas references isn't https://musescore.org/en/node/add/project-issue/musescore but part of the site update?
Sorry, I didn't test my fix. Sorry for wasting your time.
Nitpicky me (that's what you get for wasting time, we just counter-waste it ;) ), but it now shows between 'Input Format' and 'File Attachements'.
Would it be possible to move it up to the top? Having the info about the fields before having to fill them out makes more sense to me.
On a related note, something I've been wondering about is the automatically inserted "GIT commit:" when using Help > Report a Bug. Is "GIT" correct? Everywhere else, I've seen it "Git." I don't think it's an abbreviation.
"Git." would denote an abbreviation, which indeed it is not. GIT seems to indicate an acronym, which it isn't either. It got to be "git" and at the beginning of a sentence or in 'sentence case' it should be "Git", see https://git-scm.com/
See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software):
Torvalds quipped about the name git (which means "unpleasant person" in British English slang): "I'm an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself. First 'Linux', now 'git'." The man page describes Git as "the stupid content tracker". The readme file of the source code elaborates further:
The name "git" was given by Linus Torvalds when he wrote the very
first version. He described the tool as "the stupid content tracker"
and the name as (depending on your mood):
- random three-letter combination that is pronounceable, and not
actually used by any common UNIX command. The fact that it is a
mispronunciation of "get" may or may not be relevant.
- stupid. contemptible and despicable. simple. Take your pick from the
dictionary of slang.
- "global information tracker": you're in a good mood, and it actually
works for you. Angels sing, and a light suddenly fills the room.
- "goddamn idiotic truckload of sh*t": when it breaks
It's AE standards again—when I mean that the word is git, I quote it as "Git." The capital letter and period are not integral to the word I'm referring to, which is just git. (Ignore the period at the end there.)
So if this is confirmed, perhaps a separate issue should request that it be changed to "Git commit:" for future reports (nothing to be done about earlier ones)?
Automatically closed -- issue fixed for 2 weeks with no activity.
That other issue has now been filed: #125861: Issue created via Help > Report a Bug... should say "Git commit" instead of "GIT commit"
