About Bugzilla

Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System."
Defect Tracking Systems allow individual or groups of developers
to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. 
Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous 
licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features

become a favorite of hundreds of organizations across the globe, and 
is widely regarded as one of the top defect-tracking systems available.
