#18230 new defect

pt_assistent uses error code 3701 which is also used by RightAngleBuildingTest

Reported by: GerdP Owned by: Biswesh
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Plugin pt_assistant Version:
Keywords: ignore Cc:


The current implementation to ignore errors expects that the error key is somehow unique. Unfortunately there seems to be no method to verify that and I just found a conflict.
The code 3701 is used by RightAngleBuildingTest and by plugin pt_assistent.
In fact, it seems to be used for two different kinds of errors in pt_assistent:
I see different sources in pt_assisten with code 3701:

./validation/    public static final int ERROR_CODE_CONTINUITY = 3701;
./validation/    public static final int ERROR_CODE_FROM_TO_ROUTE_TAG = 3701;

The plugins directory contains two plugins which use TestError, pt_assistant and wikipedia.
I think pt_assistant uses range 3700..3799, wikipedia seems to reserve 30000..31000, not just

IIGTR pt_assistant is newer than RightAngleBuildingTest, so it should probably be changed to use a different range.
Maybe we can somehow log a warning when a plugin creates a TestError with a code < 30000?

18230-fix-ignore-codes.patch changes the error codes produced by the plugin pt_assistant to use the range 30700..30799 instead of 3701..3799.
It would be good to be able to fix ignore list entries for the code 3702..3799.
I see only one way to handle this:

  • The modified plugin adds similar ignore list entries in the range 30702 .. 30799 for those with codes 3702..3799
  • The RightAngleBuildingTest is also changed to use a new range, e.g. 4000..4100
  • The code range 3700 .. 3799 must never be used again
  • In one year or so we may remove the entries for 3700..3799
