Herald rule referring to a disabled rule silently fails
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Assume this rule:

    <something happens> 
    AND rule H10 doesn't match,
    send me an email

If rule H10 is disabled, then rule H15 will fail to evaluate, never actually do anything, and there's no way to find that except by visiting a Transcript after you know something is wrong.

In my use-case (H7 -> H22), I expected it to interpret "disable rule" as "doesn't match", but I suspect there are other possible interpretations, depending on context.

In any case, having the referring rule silently fail is bad.
