Clearly show when an issue is open or closed
This is not very clear right now; only a subtle graphical icon is shown for closed issues. Nothing is shown for open issues. When logged in, the side bar helps a bit, though.
I think this should be shown somewhere at the top of the issue page. But it should also be shown near the comment box: people should be warned before they comment in closed issues (see Spoofax/30).Submitted by Lennart Kats on 3 March 2010 at 12:19
I added a warning when users try to comment on a closed issue. I would rather not add an indication of an issue being open. YellowGrass users deal with open issues more often than with closed issues. Open issues are thereby some sort of ‘default’. I prefer to keep this default as simple as possible, as not to clutter the interface and improve user interaction.
