How to fix status of Tracker tickets?

Post by javiexin »

Situation: trying to update an old PR, I did a local merge of phpbb 3.2 branch into it, and then resolved all new merge conflicts, and updated the code with the new changes. The results were good, so I committed and pushed the changes back.

This created a complete mess, as I had not noticed that the PR was done against master. So I decided to fix it the best way I knew: close the messy PR and open a new one. That went perfectly ok.

Now the (very bad) side effect: when closing the old PR, a LOT of already merged Tracker tickets were AUTOMATICALLY TRANSITIONED to OPEN while they were already merged! Unfortunately, this has not only affected my own tickets, but a lot of them, from all authors.

How can I (help) fix this problem I unadvertently created? Most of the tickets in question were in a "Fixed/Unverified fix" status, but not all (that I have been able to identify).

Apologies to all affected, and specially, to the JIRA admins that will most likely have a hard time with this.

PS: Thanks to Marc, that helped me understand why this happened through IRC.
