Ooh, this is cool... start to review a changeset in two clicks.. :-)
A couple of bugs -
1. All the updates between the first and the last in excerpt appended
from sqfixes are missing in the viewer. Ah, known issue 3/4 strikes.
Seen cs.zip is also used.
2. The last entry (MCP-0005) does appear, but the subject is not quite
right, effectively removing gm's review information :-(
Generally, it's better to be inclusive than exclusive here - if a mail
has no attachment or no attachment we know what to do with, we can still
display it, and let the user save it to disk for manual handling.
If it displays all mails correctly, lets the user handle some mails
automatically, and for the rest allows saving, it's already better than
using sqfixes raw, and should make the review process quicker and more
Another thing that would help navigation is if the display is more
similar to sqfixes in some things -
- show dates, authors, and subject comment, instead of archive numbers
- bunch up related things like so -

The BugFixArchiveViewer automates a good bit of the process of browsing to the Bug Fixes Archive, downloading a fix/enhancement changeset, evaluating the changeset, and posting a comment to the Squeak development email list. The 'post comments' feature creates a mail message that is automatically built with a Bug-Fixes-Archive-parser-compliant subject line.
