Which bug? This is a bugzilla question, not permission
More specifically, it's a bugzilla triager question.
I anticipated that if I had posted the bug number instead of the attachment number
the reader may not have noticed I wasn't the one who used the wrong content type,
thus getting the idea that I was asking as a reporter/attacher.
When you upload an attachment, you can select mime
type, which includes text/plain.
I don't attach logs as text/x-log. When I can remember, I ask reporters to attach
logs as text/plain, but they commonly do not do it, and I don't have material
power to fix it, only to ask reporter to try again, or waste time asking someone
else to do what I could do in seconds.
And as with rest
of bugzilla we have, you can't really edit things, just replace them. You can
with new one.
Somebody fixes them sometimes. I want to be one of those somebodies, as I used to
be (and might still have the power to be) on bugzilla.mozilla.org
Regarding "Notepad", I think that depends on
what you selected on your OS. Different users will have
different settings for different mime types. The linked attachment asks for "Text
- gedit for me.
BZ should be smart enough to default to text/plain instead of text/x-log when the
upload selected is in fact text/plain. Non-regular BZ users commonly don't seem to
know they should be selecting the appropriate type.
When I wish to examine an attachment, I typically need it to be in an adjacent
tab. That's (currently) not possible with text/x-log attachments without a bunch
of extra steps per attachment.
