Description:
------------
When reporting a new bug, I would like to have the data from my PEAR account automatically used. That is, if I am logged in, it should not ask for my email or a password. After all, I _am_ logged in and that should be sufficient. The bug system should take the necessary details from my user account.

Currently, for new bug reports, both email and password are required to be entered for all people reporting a bug.

While prefilling the email address is doable, it doesn't seem like a big deal to write it in.  Preentering the password can't be done since all we have on record is the md5 hash.

Actually, I was thinking more of something like not having to enter the data at all, not even having the boxes for it. That means, uses the email from your account just like when you edit it, and if you want to change it, it checks either if you are logged in (and your username submitted the bug) or if you are not logged in, asks you for the password (as before). Basically this means giving PEAR developers a fast track to bug submission.

There was some crude attempt at something like that in the system before.  But, it didn't work.  The information in the cookies and database conflicted.  It also caused problems when submitting a bug when not logged in but then trying to edit it when logged in.  So I removed it.

I think the efforts of adding this feature and having to perform the various pieces of logic each time the bug is edited outweigh the benefits.  But, that's my opinion.

I'll mark the status as "Analyzed" and unassign it.  Perhaps someone else will want to pick it up in the future.

just wanted to request the same feature :-)
anyways i guess this is just to bump the request back onto the radar :-)

I'll probably look at this soon, will tho not go the prefilled way.

One year timeout and still no progress.

+1 for the feature.

I will change the report page, if a pear member is logged in, there is no need of any information. Everything is already available is the user database.

I will check if the magic cookie is still used for pear members, it should not be used.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
