"forked a repo" Newsfeed displays wrong links if target repo has been deleted since then (BB-1279)

  • Fork userA/repo to userB/repo
  • (hack, hack; pull request; merge changes in userA's repo)
  • delete userB/repo
  • check userB's newsfeed, it will display:

forked unknown as repo

Originating repository has since been deleted.

(unknown and repo are both links to the homepage http://bitbucket.org )


Since userA/repo is still here, you can link to the source repo. I understand that the target is gone, and unknown is good enough, but somehow the logic is wrong, as the originating repository is still here: only the destination repository is gone.

Thanks guys :)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
