#978 new defect

Changes should have multiple users

Reported by: dabrahams Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.+
Version: 0.8.1 Keywords: git, users
Cc: msorrenti@…

Description

http://buildbot.net/buildbot/docs/current/Doing-Things-With-Users.html sez: "Each Change has a single User who is responsible for that Change," but in Git anyway, a change has both an author and a committer, and I'm pretty sure there are ways to have multiple authors in a commit. So I think BB may need to broaden its idea of responsible Users.

I expect other DVCSes share this property.

The former part of this is true, but the latter part is not. Any given commit in Git has a single Author and a single Committer. That said, merge commits can pull in changesets from more than one author as a merged branch, but the merge commit itself still only has a single author and single committer.

c.f. #2048 - it would be good to allow MailNotifier? to be selective about who it emails.
