Public bug reported:
(From a recent post to firstname.lastname@example.org)
I usually use the web interface for approving messages. But I occasionally do it via Email. When I do, I get a response back that looks like this:
The results of your email command are provided below. Attached is your original message.
- Results: Confirmation succeeded
- Unprocessed: Approved: <admin password>
---- CUT HERE -----------------------
To me at least, this suggests that the message has been rejected, not approved, as the text says that the approval command was not processed. I know this isn't the case because I see the message posted to the list, but when I initially saw it, I had a panic as I thought I'd lost a message for the list.
Is it possible to fix this so that the message is more clear about what has happened? The "Confirmation succeeded" message is not very explanatory, and seen in isolation doesn't really tell you anythying about whether the message was approved or rejected.
** Affects: mailman Importance: Medium Assignee: Mark Sapiro (msapiro) Status: Confirmed
Fixed by appending (Approve) or (Discard) as appropriate to the Confirmation succeeded line and removing any Approve(d): line from the Unprocessed: list.
** Changed in: mailman Status: Confirmed => Fix Committed
** Changed in: mailman Status: Fix Committed => Fix Released
