Description (last modified by dustin)

Ben Hearsum would like to see a Tinderbox feature ported to buildbot: a link on each build that offers viewers a way to add comments to the build, some sort of text box.

I think the cleanest way to implement this would be with a Build Property named "comments", and to extend IBuildStatus to include a setProperty() method. Now, all the I*Status interfaces are supposed to be read-only, but I'm thinking it would be easier to relax this requirement than to add a parallel set of I*StatusWriter? interfaces (not unlike the existing IBuildControl interface) just for this one purpose.

In addition to that, we'd need changes to html.StepBox? to add the link, a new class (and URL target) to display/edit the comments, and maybe a new parameter to Waterfall() to make these comments read/write or just read-only. Submitted: Brian Warner ( warner ) - 2006-10-09 07:29

Has the patch which was submitted for this been lost? I would really like to try it out.

Eek - this runs in a direction counter to how the web status works now. I'm not sure I like that!
