#14041 closed patch (fixed)

man page out of date; Conversations->Notify buddies that you are typing

Description

The man page for pidgin (man pidgin) states:

Conversations
       Notify buddies that you are typing to them
              Some  protocols  allow  clients to tell their buddies when they
              are typing.  This option enables  this  feature  for  protocols
              that  supports  it.   For  XMPP,  this also enables sending the
              "User has left the conversation" message when ending  the  con‐
              versation.

Since the closure of ticket #1384, it seems the last sentence about XMPP is no longer accurate and pidgin never sends "User has left the conversation" messages under any circumstance. The man page should be updated to read:

Conversations
       Notify buddies that you are typing to them
              Some  protocols  allow  clients to tell their buddies when they
              are typing.  This option enables  this  feature  for  protocols
              that  supports  it.

Gah, ignore the Debug Log thing. Bad mis-click. Patches welcome.

  • Status changed from pending to closed

This ticket was closed automatically by the system. It was previously set to a Pending status and hasn't been updated within 14 days.

Last comment was patches welcome; should this have been closed? Seems like there's also a bug in Trac, if changing the bug status accidentally will cause it to auto-close 14 days later.

  • Status changed from closed to new

Setting the ticket to a pending status results in a closure in 14 days if nothing further is done to the ticket. This is functioning as intended. I think the application of the pending status was accidental here, though.

Oh, of course you're right. I thought bleeter changed it away from pending, but he just commented on the misclick.

14041.patch is a diff against the source in pidgin-2.10.2.tar.bz2 which should hopefully allow this bug to be closed for real.
