[BCC: to ooo-dev @i.a.o]


It could be a configuration problem with AOOo Bugzilla, or a disconnect in recognizing you
as the reporter.  

Five questions.

 1.  Did you subscribe to ooo-dev before sending the message that bounced?

 2.  Was the bounce from ooo-dev itself or from someone on the list whose e-mail system bounced
your post?  (I'm asking because I get these from various individual users but not from the
lists themselves.)

 3.  Does AOOo bugzilla have you logged-in as mbourne @OO.o ?  Can you see "My bugs" and does
it list 112686 ?

 4. There are two places to make comments.  One is at the end of the list of existing comments.
 The "Additional Comment" may be different.  Did you try both?

 5. Finally, did you contact bugzilla-admin @a.o as it says on the bottom of pages?

Even after restoring a password, there are issues with commenting on 
Bugzilla, as I posted here last week:

It seems that adding a comment also tries changing another field ("Ever 
confirmed"), which we (or at least I) don't have permission to change - 
so adding the comment fails.

I tried emailing the ooo-dev list on, but that list 
bounced my emails due to SPF records not matching. Someone else 
forwarded my original message, and I've been watching the archives of 
that list in case any responses turn up there.

 It is your @OO.o email address.  If you changed the forwarding of that at OO.o, it should
work.  I sent you an e-mail so that you can verify that.

is to go through the Lost Password ceremony.  Use the full e-mail form of your @OO.o e-mail
address.  The Apache OO bugzilla will use an e-mail reply-back ceremony to verify that you
are the one that has that @OO.o e-mail address.  Continuity will then be restored (e.g., you
can check your profile, find a list of all your issues, etc.)
