RE: [] How do I get modification privileges toBugzilla

Hello Joel,
The biggest problem here seems that as a PL you're unable to contact
your PMC. I'm not exactly sure how Technology handles this (CC'ing
some people I know on the Technology PMC), but as a PL you must
have a channel to contact your PMC.
If it's the mailing list, you'll need to subscribe here:
Once that is done, you should be able to send E-Mail to the PMC.
The second problem is, that as an incubating project you should have
two Mentors assigned. These are your primary resource for questions
your assigned Mentors are Richard Gronback (just back from Vactaion)
and Gary Xue (should have been available). You should certainly have
direct E-Mail contact with them.
For question 1 (bugzilla), I think you should file a bug against
  "Eclipse Foundation -> Community -> Bugzilla"
which will bump into the Webmaster who should be able to help
you out. It sounds like your committer ID is not properly linked
with your bugzilla ID.
For question 2 (how to use bugzilla), having a separate
"Management Tasks" Component is certainly an option. I
haven't seen personally a project which captures such
tasks in Bugzilla yet, but it's certainly possible. Especially
if you anticipate Community Feedback with respect to your
tasks, Bugzilla is a great tool for this.
Hope that helped, and if you have further questions I think
you should contact your PMC and/or Mentors -- they are on
CC of this E-Mail.

I am a PL on the ORMF project. This Webmaster FAQ " I need to add/remove.change a version/milestone/component in Bugzilla. How do I do this?" indicates that I should have the ability to manage the ORMF Bugzilla but when attempt to access the link,  I get the following error:

Bugzilla Self Management

As a Project Lead or PMC member you can grant access to committers to edit bugzilla components,versions and milestones for your project(s)

It looks like you don't have access to edit any bugzilla components.
Talk to the PL or PMC of your project(s)

Can you please advise on how I go about rectifying this.

While I have you, I have another Bugzilla related question that possibly you can advise. I want to put project infrastructure type tasks into Bugzilla, f.i. "Set up automate build system", "Evaluate modelling tools", etc.. I was considering adding a "Project Infrastructure" component to Bugzilla, but I wonder how other projects handle this. Any ideas?

All the best,
