Re: GNOME Bugmail: Gmail threading finally working!

I'm really wondering what's the rationale behind forwarding a fix that has been applied upstream in newer Bugzilla releases already. Newer Bugzillas do have a specific flag to manage Gmail's threading directly on the email preferences for each single user. 

This was just a temporary measure until we upgrade our Bugzilla to the 4.2 release. Up to you, really.

I undid that change as you didn't say to me you were making changes.
Furthermore it it broke my filtering, it won't work in every case, it
should be pushed upstream first, secondly you made the change on the
server, not in the repository.

Regarding does not work, "Re:" is not needed for threading. In-Reply-To
and so on are. Gmail only threads by subject, so any time the subject is
adjusted it'll break again.

Please make the change *upstream* first, I cannot maintain Bugzilla as
it is now.

I do really appreciate all the work you're doing. Please do not see
above as a "stop", but prefer if someone would takeover the maintenance,
not small changes which increase maintenance.
