Re: Preventing loss of useful information when closing bugs as duplicates.

Should all comments for bugs closed as duplicates be added to the

It seems to me that useful information is lost when closing bugs as

Here's an example that lead me to think about this:

ORIGINAL:  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=237393
DUPLICATE: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=355151

While it is clearly a duplicate bug, to me it seems clear that the
duplicate bug contains a lot of useful and relevant information.



That might be a bad mess for bugs that are marked duplicate accidentally, incorrectly, or just fat-fingered as duplicate of the wrong bug number. It would cause a weird mixing of comments that don't follow easily from the previous as well.
