Email privacy

Gervase Markham
I have a need for a Bugzilla which implements email privacy, and I'd
like to write an upstreamable patch to do it. Can people please review
my design?

The last attempt by wurblzap died:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425663 [0]
on the grounds of what seems to me to be an incorrect objection
involving extern_id.

I plan to implement this:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Email_Change_Design
which follows what he did pretty closely.

It's not a long document; can people take 5 minutes to glance over it
and make sure the semantics are what they expect?

I'd much rather have feedback of that sort now than after I've taken the
effort to write/update the patch.

Does no-one have any input on this? It would be a great shame if I were
to do this work and it were then considered unsuitable for upstream due
to some objection which could have been dealt with if it were raised at
this stage.

Does anyone object to the principle of the idea of separating Bugzilla's
notion of email address from the notion of the identifier you use to log in?

I think email address and login identifier should be two different things,
i. e. two different database table fields. That said, it'd probably make
much sense for many installations to keep these two fields identical at all
times (think current Bugzilla login, or OpenID login); this should probably
even be the default behaviour.

Input is already in bug 218917, AFAICT, and you probably have a better
audience there with 43 users in the CC list + 39 voters. Your proposal
seems to be the same as what Marc already suggested in the bug, or at
least is very close to his proposal.

I'm not sure why you want to remove "emailsuffix" as you force everyone
to type their full email address on user account creation, even for
installations which all use the same domain name for their accounts.
Besides this point, I'm fine with the proposal.

OK. I'll repost there.

I think everyone's very used to this when signing up for or logging in
to sites. And keeping it seems to me to lead to increased complexity
both in the implementation and in the UI. Where and when does
emailsuffix get applied? If emails and logins are linked, which of them
in the database has the emailsuffix included? If one and not the other,
they cannot be assumed to be the same even when they are the same. And
so on.

Re: Email privacy

emailsuffix could be a GUI-only thing imo. Meaning, addresses get
translated in and out, but handled as full addresses internally. This might
reconcile positions.

No idea whether or how much this affects the current state of affairs in
Bugzilla code, though.
