|[eclipse.org-committers] Eclipse Bugzilla update|
Greetings committers,This is a quick update regarding Bugzilla. We've made some changes that we hope will help improve your productivity with our bug tracker.
1. LATER and REMIND are deprecated 2. New keyword: needinfo 3. Flags for bugs 4. Flags for attachments 5. Bugzilla 3.0 1. LATER and REMIND are deprecated ==================================After much discussion in bug 178923, the LATER and REMIND resolutions have been deprecated. As time permits (perhaps after Europa ships), I encourage project teams to consider alternative ways of identifying such bugs. Some solutions are proposed in bug 178923 comment 75:
2. New keyword: needinfo ========================Related to the above, I have created a needinfo keyword to identify bugs where more information is needed. Leaving bugs open and adding needinfo is the preferred method of identifying such bugs, instead of RESOLVED/REMIND.
If you used REMIND to simply remove/hide the bugs from your search results (which is convenient) you can simply edit your search query and, in the Advanced Search section, specify Keywords: doesn't contain: needinfo. This will yield the same result of hiding the bug, while leaving the bug open and visible to all.
3. Flags for bugs =================We've enabled three Bugzilla flags for bugs: documentation, pmc_approved and review. Feel free to use these flags to indicate that documentation is updated (set the flag to '+') or needs to be updated (by setting the flag to '?').
Likewise, pmc_approval can be requested by committers (set to '?') and granted by the PMC (+) or denied (-). A review can be requested (?), approved (+) or denied (-).
The neat part about flags is that they can be set by multiple people, and they are searchable using Advanced Search.
See the global flags.jpg attachment for a visual. 4. Flags for attachments ========================We've enabled a 'review' flag for attachments, which allows you to request a review (set flag to ?), or to indicate a successful review (+).
For instance, a patch can be reviewed by multiple committers, producing a nice visual report on the bug page (see attach-with-review.jpg).
5. Bugzilla 3.0 ===============Bugzilla 3.0, which has a bunch of interesting new features, was slated for release on April 2. Looks like the Mozilla team are running a bit late, so our upgrade will be delayed accordingly.
