An idea about auto bug submission : the tracker should refuse them if the bug is fixed I think

Hi, it's not very important but I think that when a bug that was
submitted by the new Idea mechanism for exception is fixed (or duplicate
obsolete ...), the tracker should ignore new submissions coming directly
from Idea (but not those that are posted via the web)

And another idea : maybe Idea should keep track of already submitted
stacktraces to avoid multiple submissions

It already does this, for submission which match closely. It's not
perfect but it does do it. JetBrains agreed that they needed to improve
it at some point.

Excelent idea... with one mention:

I believe that the tracker should ignore new submissions only if they originate from a build number < build number where the bug is declared as fixed. If the build number is >= "the fix build", then the exception probably means that either the presumed fixed was not a genuine fix, or the fix was broken by a subsequent build.

In the later situation, the exception should be sumbitted - such that the bug can be reopened.

It would be cool if such a policy also took into account the status of duplicates.
