A while back there was a lot of discussion of enhancing the current issue text box to be "smarter". One of the ideas were to have the dialog query a URL to get data to populate a combo box so that developers could choose from a list, etc. Is that idea (or other similar ideas) dead?
In the past week, developers on my team have accidentally typed in a project number wrong (one of the numbers was 1 digit off). We now have some nice automatic functionality plugged into the commit process that is driven by this number, and when it is wrong, it does some bad things.
I will continue to ask people to be very careful in entering this number, and I have recommended that they never actually type it but cut-and-paste it instead, but mistakes will continue to happen I suspect as long as the field is free text.
One suggestion was to validate that the project # is correct before accepting the commit. This is not fully possible. I can check that the project number is a valid project number, but I can't confirm that it is the "correct" project number. In the cases last week, the 1 digit mistake resulted in a valid project number, but the wrong project.
Anyway, I was just curious what the status of those ideas was.
