The configuration for „Referencing and fixing issues in commit messages” is very useful - but it would be even better if you had a chance to define more status. i'm thinking about something like:

--- 1 ---
    Fixing keywords: fix,fixes,fixed
    Applied status: done
    % Done: 100% [ ] ...

--- 2 ---
    Fixing keywords: update, updates
    Applied status: Feedback
    % Done:  10% [x] [... if 100% - applied status: done]

--- add new rule ---

you know? There are two ideas:
1. define more than one Referencing-rule
2. have not only absolute % done (e.g. 80%) but add some percents until you reach 100% (and maybe if you reach 100% the status will get an other value) …

This could be a very nice feature - i would use it instantly :)

I think it's an extended feature request in relation to #1518. In #1518 you would propably just define the time format in your administration panel.
In this case, you would define mappings between commit messages and status updates.

Think about yet another definition:

Fixing keywords:       r2t, ready2test
Action:                Status:           Ready to test
                       Ratio:            90%
                       Applied to:       John Doe _(for example *the* testperson of the current project)_

In addition to the testperson of the current project, it would make sense to configure this whole mappings on the project section. Some projects would define the behavior of commit messages different than others (other test persons, other development strategy, ...).

Would be great if the repository section would generally increase a bit :)

Patch #7445 seems to implement this; any difference between what is requested here and that patch?

#5 Updated by Boris Biryuchkov almost 12 years ago

It would be great to realise the ability to auto assign issue to a specific user when the commit witn the "fixing" keyword is performed (i.e. to the issue author).

+1 (looking for re-assigning to issue author or to forward to another user via commit comment)
