Module documentation for 1.3
This program makes working with old Debian bugs much more pleasant. Sometimes I want to have personal bug-squashing party, so you open [https://firstname.lastname@example.org] in web-browser, and get nice list of bugs that require my attention.
Browsing is great, but when I want to do something with those bugs – close, add tags, discuss, I have to copy bug number, launch mail client in another terminal and compose email to [mailto:email@example.com].
Should I need to quote some previous message, more distracting actions are to be done – download whole bug as mbox, incorporate that mbox into my mail system (I prefer MH), and only after that real work could start.
DebBugs has also email interface – you can request sending to you bugs
you want, but reply is also optimized for reading, not for manipulating.
Honestly, it looks like corresponding web page, filtered by
mbug [--into <folder>] <query>
It will download mbox of every bug, listed at
https://bugs.debian.org/<query> and create
+<folder> MH folder. In
that folder subfolder for every bug is created. By default,
+<folder> is volatile, every new invocation of
overwrite its previous content. This way you can focus on bugs you are
interested in right now.
