Help Wanted: reporter cleanup and bug filing

I could use a few volunteers to do the following:

Help me clean up reporter
Everything needs a cleaning now and then. Check for reports in reporter that just don’t belong. “Microsoft Sucks” isn’t a valid report. Some are merely tests. Find them and send me the reportID’s (you can leave a comment if you wish or send an email).

Help file bugs
We have a fair number of reports already. Start sifting and file bugs in bugzilla (under Evangelism) with good valid bug reports. Be sure to mention in the bug what reports found the bug, so we can have detailed info on the setup’s that involve this bug. Also please make it block Bug 301962 so that we can keep track of bugs based on reporter data.

These reports are all about Microsoft denying access to the download center to some Firefox users. Seems to be fixed now.

Correction: were not deleting reports that are of issues that have been resolved. Only invalid issues. Old issues filter out based on time (we typically query in the past few months).

I suggest for the first part that you code up some quick PHP (fired by a button in the r.m.o UI) to send you an email with the ID in it. If you wanted to make it better, you could even code up an admin interface to let you dele them that way instead of having to do SQL queries to do it.

As for the second idea, ask in #bmo for a Bugzilla keyword for this; this sort of thing is what keywords were made to do. (If they won’t do it, use the status whiteboard with something like “[reporter-bug]” to do the same thing.)

are reports filed under localhost.

This is a site-specific issue for and the report contains foul language.
