Other things that we may want to do:
o reset bug ownerships - some bugs are assigned to people who's no
longer active. Clear all assignments, and let triage / developers
start from fresh.
o atachment types: want to add .doc and .rtf
o As Paul pointed out (in private postings people, you don't need
to run your memory checker) some of the Eazel entries are
different. Here's my comments on them (FYI - I know we probably
won't get any of them until they get merged into the mainline):
- Inclination/Time estimate: These only really make sense where
the project is driven by $$$. When I work on a project in my
spare time, I don't do stuff I don't want to do. It's that
And while the time estimate could be useful for planning, it
also only makes sense if you have committed time - I give hours
to the project when I have some to spare and feel like it. You
can't make any planning based on contributions like that.
[i.e., you can't sum the estimated hours for bugs scheduled for
next milestone, divide by 40h/week per developer and set a
release date from that - so why bother?]
- Target milestone: This is very nice. I believe the Mozilla team
uses keywords instead - but this is way nicer.
If it's not easy to add something like this, we can use
dependencies instead or keywords.
o Mozilla BugZilla has voting. I'd _really_ like to see us adopt
that. Presumably you only have to enable it somewhere in the
o Mozilla BugZilla has keywords. I would like us to get that as well,
and adopt some standard keywords to add:
asssert - bug causes assertion to fire
crash - bug causes abiword to crash
rfe - bug is an enhancement request
(mxx - milestone xx)
Others when we see the need. Presently these are written in the
subject which should be reserved for description.
