[PATCH] suppress ticket notification when only status changed
|Reported by:||bof||Owned by:||doki_pen|
Similar to the ignore_cc_change option, this enhancement can be used to suppress notification mail when nothing but the status of a ticket changes.
In some parts of our trac workflows, there are sequences of three or four workflow steps, expressed as successive status values, and half of the time these steps are passed without comments or other changes being made. That is not a problem in itself, but it is annoying to often receive three or four notification mails in short succession consisting of nothing but these status changes.
With this patch applied, I can suppress these notifications.
New options for trac.ini in the [announcer] section are
The patch feature is only activated when ignore_status_only = true is set.
If you have certain status values, e.g. started and review, for which you still want notifications to be sent regardless of ignore_status_only = true, you can write no_ignore_status = started, review.
Patch is against the 0.11/ version of the announcer plugin, because that is what I have installed + can test right now.
