Filing Good Bugs

Writing good bugs is important when dealing with software development. I deal with several Bugzilla installations meaning I’ve got some experience with both good and bad bug reports. While the specifics may vary based on the product your submitting a bug report for these basics rules will make life easier for everyone. In many cases […]

Milestone Tracking

Does anyone know of a way to get Bugzilla to give output similar to how Trac can report on milestones? That is a really great way of viewing things. It lets you know where the release stands really easily.

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 […]

Safari’s WebKit is now open

Hyatt made the announcement on his blog. Using bugzilla, and cvs. It says it’s even possible to get checkin access if your a contributor with a proven track record. I didn’t see any lxr like tool for viewing source via the web (very handy), or a list of reviewers. Perhaps that’s still to come, the […]

Mozilla Reporter

History As I recall Asa and I started discussing this back in July, evaluating what the ideal system would be, how it would help, who would use it, etc. etc. It’s evolved a bit from the original concept. Much more mature. With the extension as the input device, it’s collecting very relevant, useful, and accurate […]

Trolls and Bugzilla

Times like these, I wish I had the appropriate permissions on my bugzilla account to terminate an account. No Asa, you are not a “Hitler” nor a “cancer”. In all honesty, from Bug Days on IRC, to setting up the new r.m.o system, Asa’s been great to work with. He’s really the easiest person in […]

Bugzilla Beauty

Is it just me, or does RedHat’s Bugzilla Install put Mozilla’s to shame? The theme is real nice and easy on the eyes. Really, really like it. Hopefully Mozilla’s next bugzilla upgrade will include some theming. Would be real nice. It’s just great looking. Really really like it.

I didn’t go with Bugzilla

I was looking for a good bug tracking system, for my personal use. Of course the first thing I turned to was Bugzilla. But I decided instead to go with Mantis. Here’s what I was looking for: Streamlined UI, fast quick bug posting Simplicity Good Sorting Good Control over data Mantis has by far the […]

This could be huge

Bugzilla is a ugly beast, but it’s a great, solid product. Never saw anything better. Looks like a testcase manager may be on the way. I think this could really help make things more efficient. Lets hope it all goes as well and this can become a new tool. Who knows, perhaps they can dump […]

My own bug

I created a new about:buildconfig page. Something to mimic the about:plugins page. I then took my page and filed a bug. Only things I messed with were XHTML and CSS. It’s mighty neat filing a bug and the code to resolve it. First time for me. Now I need someone to review, and put in […]
