Hi,

Was there a reply to these questions?

I am particularly interested in how to resolve, or ignore, false positives so that they do not appear in the list.   We have  1531 similar_title which are making the issues list unmanageable.

Many thanks,
Stewart

Subject: [EP-tech] Issues support in EPrints

Hi,

I've just enabled the issues functionality in EPrints 3.2 to see what it does. I'm a little surprised by the way it works.

First of all, there doesn't seem to be an easy way for repository staff to check if there are open issues other than using the "Search for issues" function. I hoped for a quick indication of the number of open issues on one of the pages after a repository staff member log in to the repository. Is this perhaps already added in 3.3.x? Or is there anyone who built such functionality?

Another thing I noticed is that it seems to be impossible to do something with an issue other than "solving the problem". What to do in case of false-positives? The database and code seems to be prepared for this as it has an issue status file allowing these values:

discovered ignored reported autoresolved resolved

I assume that "ignored" would be the correct way to mark a false positive. Yet there seems to be no functionality in EPrints to allow one to set this status.

I also noticed the following fields in the issues code / database:
reported_by, resolved_by and comments. They are mentioned in the changelog for version EPrints (3.1.0-beta-1) but they don't seem to be used either.

Am I missing something or is this still a work in progress?
