Save again functionality: VCS type not pre-selected
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Clicking on the Save again button in https://archive.softwareheritage.org/save/#requests copies the origin url back into the Origin URL field, but leaves the Origin type unchanged. If the origin is not of type git, this leads to creating silently a wrong save code now request.
The New snapshot button should also be checked to see if the same issue is present there

The "Save again" button currently copies the previously provided parameters to the request form.

So if a user made a mistake in the origin type the first time, it will be reused unfortunately.

Hopefully, I known how to fix that particular case.
