PKP Bugzilla – Bug 1311
EDITOR_REVIEW email & related functions appear to be unused
Last modified: 2005-04-06 19:44:55 PDT
EDITOR_REVIEW email template, notifyAuthor functions (SectionEditorAction &
SectionEditorHandler classes) appear not to be used.
(Perhaps this feature was removed from the template during the UI updates.)
Sorry, that should be "appear NOT to be used" in the bug title.
Rory, it appears the editor decision to author notification is not used anywhere
in the UI. Is this supposed to be integrated with the comments as with the
editor decision to reviewers notification (which IS currently present)?
I actually don't know.
The function of the notifyAuthor email has been replaced by the ability to
import peer reviews through comments, and then sending the combined reviews
(along with the editor's decision) to the author using the Save and Email
I've just been plugging away at things John has been asking me to do and so I
guess I didn't realize that that feature is now missing.
John, this seems like something that is a potential bug. Could you comment?
OSJ 2.0 uses the Editor/Author Correspondence to send emails from editor to author, and from author
to editor. This would eliminate the need for EDITOR_REVIEW email template, however with more
reflection I proposed in #1324 to turn the E/A C into an email template (now scheduled for 2.X), and
that still makes sense to me. So the template is not used now -- and the system will work -- but it may
be in 2.X.
Okay, will leave the code as is for now and defer changes to #1324
