Jira went berserk. Old comments are being reposted as new Dec 27, 2006

Today I got 30 email notifications that a Jira request I was watching got updated with a comment. When I looked at them, it turns out old comments had been repeated as if they were posted today, Dec 27, 2006.


Example:
http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-2003
The comment from Dec 14, 2005 was reposted again for Dec 27, 2006

It appears your Jira software went berserk.

Same here. A real trip down memory lane.

The problem will be the JIRA<->NNTP plugin, which tracked seen message-id's in a file on the file system. I guess JIRA was upgraded and that file was lost.

Ideally, the list of message-id's would be stored in the JIRA database, but this also wouldn't survive an export/import operation (that I know of anyway).

Maybe its time to revisit the code base of the plugin.
