Description Tomas Mysik 2009-04-30 08:54:45 UTC
Not sure whether this is a bug or enhancement (IMHO bug ;).

BZ supports private comments - you can add a comment to a bug and mark it as Private => it means that these
comments are than visible only for a specific group of people (typically developers and not customers - so than a
developer can add comment like "this is really silly bug but I will try to fix it and it will take about an hour" and a
customer is not able to see it which is good ;)

Right now, in NetBeans, I can see all the comments (including private ones) but I cannot add a private comment
(this is a stopper - I have to open a web browser to do so). Also, in BZ, all the private comments have different
color of background - this is _very_ useful.

Looking at BZ web site, I found e.g. this (search for "is_insider"):

Thanks a lot!

looks like private comments aren't supported yet by the connector we use...
