I limited the availability of canned responses to group members.

Thank you!

Currently, Savannah UI has no such switches.

Then, I'm not sure what solution would be the best: we could e.g.

  • disallow "non-member" access to canned responses site-wide, or on per-group basis, or separately for each response;
  • force preview when any canned response is selected;
  • do something else.

We have a list of canned responses on the GNU Octave bug tracker hosted at Savannah here:

The question for Savannah admins is: can we limit the use of those canned responses to project members who are logged in and not by end users? We have had some cases over time of people submitting bugs and also selecting a canned response, causing confusion.
