Description leggewie 2005-02-04 20:27:39 UTC
Links to issues that have been resolved ought to be struck through with a line
to aid in discerning which bug are still open.  Take for example issue 14222
which mentions issue 25088 as being closed.  If the link were struck through it
would be immediately clear that this bug has been closed.
works this way and it greatly helps.

This is strange.  Apparently, this functionality has already been incorporated
in some pages but not in others.  What I am suggesting is present on link to
vote for this issue ->
Comment 2 leggewie 2005-02-05 13:57:49 UTC
Of course you will only see struck-through issues on that page if you have voted
for issues that have been resolved by now.  Sorry, I missed that previously.
Comment 3 stx123 2005-02-06 09:41:42 UTC
So you are suggesting that resolved issues are struck-through in comments.
Comment 4 leggewie 2005-02-07 20:38:16 UTC

I think this is a good idea in general, not only in comments.
Comment 5 leggewie 2005-07-19 15:02:56 UTC
A better example of this working should be visible when clicking on
Comment 6 leggewie 2005-07-19 15:05:06 UTC
Sorry, incorrect link again.  Here is the correct one

That issue itself is closed so you should at least see one occurrence of a
stuck-through issue link whether or not any of your votes are for closed issues
or not.

now, this gets really interesting.  Take a look at issue 42236.  It depends on
issue 52339 which at least currently is being shown as struck-through which I
guess is because I just reported it about a minute ago so it has the unconfirmed

Request to strike through closed issues but not unconfirmed issues.

Have filed an internal ticket to the engineers. Will get back to you with their

The engineers have updated that Issue tracker is in maintenance state and we are
currently not making any enhancements to it. If this was a request for Project
Tracker then we could look into it. We would look into this issue in case we
make enhancements to Issue tracker in the future.

OMG, I can't believe this one is still open.  It should be a no-brainer to
decide IZ really wants to have this.  And actually implementing it is unlikely
to take a full-man year as well.  Well, ...
Comment 13 leggewie 2008-05-16 01:24:26 UTC
It appears that bugs in "depends on" and possibly "blocks" are already struck
through if they are closed.  It would be important to have them struck through
in comments as well.
