In Bug reports MUST have reproduction instructions
users read “If you do not include version information, your thread will
the only possible ways to detect the running version are administrator-only.
Thus you have locked out of the phabricator bug reporting world the vast majority of users (who use a phabricator
instance to report bugs, and even more, who just read bug reports that
they have clicked on the URL of somewhere) from ever reporting bugs!
No, you wouldn’t say they are some kind of whistleblowers you are
stopping, but please don’t eliminate them from the picture.
One way would be simply mentioning and implementing:
"The phabricator version is also available in the HTML comments:
$ wget https://phabricator.EXAMPLE.org -O - | grep phabricator-version
< !-- phabricator-version: 1.234 -->
(Unless the administrator has marked it as secret.)
No, users might not want to have to attempt to have administrators forward bugs here.
