iPhone App Signature Invalid. Disallowed Signer.

Google has 4 hits for "disallowed signer". That doesn't bode well.

mlm@Matthew-McClures-MacBook-Pro ~/tmp
$ codesign -d

$ echo $?

Change the Screen Command Key

For example, this interferes less with Emacs use than Screen's default Control-A command key.

screen -e '^Zz'

Type a literal Control-Z by typing Control-V Control-Z in Bash.

Prevent Closing JIRA Issues as Duplicate Unless Linked to the Duplicated Issue

Using the JIRA JSS plugin, Justin de Vesine came up with the following Validator:

from com.atlassian.jira import ComponentManager
from import IssueLinkTypeManager;

authenticationContext = ComponentManager.getInstance().getJiraAuthenticationContext()
ilm = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager();

iltm = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(IssueLinkTypeManager)
dup_link_type = iltm.getIssueLinkType(10010);

user = authenticationContext.getUser()

resolution_ob = issue.getResolutionObject()
if resolution_ob and resolution_ob.getName() == "Duplicate":
    result = False
    description = 'Link this issue to the issue it duplicates before Closing or Resolving as Duplicate.'
    links = ilm.getLinkCollection(issue, user)
    if links.getLinkTypes().contains(dup_link_type):
        result = True

                # commands in subshells inherit traps on ERR

set -o nounset  # Exit on use of unset variables.
