[openstack-dev] Flakiness with launchpad tracking bug status?

OK, I have the post on the new tags bookmarked so I've been sure to use 
them in my latest commits but looking back at the ones I pointed out, they 
were using something different so I suppose that's the issue (although the 
hyper-v one of mine was before those changes went into effect, I think - 
it was merged back on 7/9).

Note that these two use "Fix bug" on a separate line, albeit they aren't 
"fixes bug" as the post mentions.


Anyway, I'll keep a look out for the new tag in commit messages when doing 
reviews.  Does this mean we should be giving a -1 if the tag doesn't apply 
to the new patterns?

Yes, this was an announced change in the bug integration hook for
commit message processing a little over a week ago...


In short, some of the old commonly-used patterns were reimplemented
for convenience, but the new parser is not 100% backward compatible
so some wordier bug-related comments will not be picked up
(particularly if they're not all on one line, "bug" is not one of
the first two words or there are additional words after it prior to
the bug number). Best of course is to use the new headers mentioned
there, so you can also benefit from the new partial and related bug
