#466 Make it possible to add SIG labels to tickets

LingSIG (4)

I would like to suggest making it possible for SIGs to use ticket labels for marking tickets of interest to SIG members. I have labelled the present ticket with "LingSIG" to illustrate that. I do hope that this is an uncontroversial suggestion. Thanks for considering this.

Implementing this suggestion could be done in several ways: the project admin might create a user group "SIG conveners" (Admin|User Permissions|Add a new group) and then add this group to groups that can edit tickets (Admin|Tools|Tickets|Permissions|Update(?)). Or they can make SIG conveners "Developers" and make sure that this predefined group can edit tickets. Or, finally, the least maintenance-friendly option: add users to the "Update" field by name (I do hope it's the "Update" field -- the documentation is delightfully vague on that).

    May I be made a Developer at least, to demonstrate what this could look like? (that sound in the background as you're reading this is me growling, I guess)

    I've made you a developer. Does that give you the power you need?

    Thanks, Martin, It looks like the tracker is my oyster now...
    Will place LingSIG labels in some strategic places tonight.

    This is only to report that:
    the developer flag gives me the required permissions (thanks!)
    one has to be careful when editing tickets, because upon opening a ticket for edition, the "priority" value gets reset to "1" and has to be restored manually.

    I think we can do this for any SIG that requests it. Any reason not to close this ticket and notify sig mailing list that they should ask if they want it?

    At Oxford 2013-11 face-to-face JC as SIG Coordinator to tell the SIGs that if they wish, we can make their SIG convener a developer on SF and make it possible to assign SIG labels to tickets; Deadline: Next teleconference.
