I think theres something up with contributors.bml - It seems to be doing it for some and not others. Anyone else seeing this?

I'm working on changes to contributors.bml ATM so if its a bug, i'll fix it then unless its done before then. (also see here)

Zilla bugs & Contributions

I have seen various people adding comments to Zilla bugs after they are resolved linking to their contribution, some of them also asking people to acknowledge them.

Brad, what is your thought about this? Personally, I find it rather annoying. I'm sure we can trust that proper contributions are acknowledged; I don't think contributors should need to draw extra attention to them.

Or is there a serious reason to believe contributions won't get acked otherwise?

On an unrelated note, I have a question about Zilla. When someone marks a bug as a duplicate, I get two mails - one for the bug that was resolved as a duplicate, and one for the bug it was marked a duplicate of. So far, this is correct. However, shouldn't that latter mail contain only this information? Sometimes I see an address being added to the CC list within that e-mail, and I'm wondering how that is possible and whether that might be a bug.
