We had a Bugzilla meeting yesterday. You can read the minutes there:
* Max Kanat-Alexander (mkanat) and Frédéric Buclin (LpSolit) are now
allowed to grant approval on bugs. So the team of approvers for the
Bugzilla product is now justdave, myk, mkanat and LpSolit.
* mkanat will check whether the last webservice bug is really a blocker
for 3.0 or not. That's the very last bug remaining on our roadmap for 3.0.
* No major problems found following the upgrade of bugzilla.mozilla.org
(aka b.m.o). Most serious bugs were fixed within 48-72 hours. b.m.o nows
runs smoothly with mod_perl enabled. Thanks to justdave and reed for the
hard work before and during the upgrade.
* We decided to drop the 2.23.4 release. We got enough feedback since
the upgrade of the b.m.o installation 2 weeks ago to feel confident with
our current code. So our next release will be 3.0 RC1.
* We don't agree whether the Bugzilla project should have its own
Bugzilla installation (e.g. bugzilla.bugzilla.org) or not. Some of us
see dogfood as a good way to test our own code. One drawback is that
moving bugs between Mozilla products (e.g. the mozilla.org or b.m.o
products) and the Bugzilla product would be a pain. This would also
break saved searches which are not able to query 2 separate
installations in one shot. Also, users would probably hate to have 2
separate accounts to report bugs.
* The QA team will have to redo all QA tests again as we finally didn't
release 2.22.2 and 2.23.4 on mid-December, despite QA tests were all
done and passed successfully. There has been too many checkins since the
b.m.o upgrade so that new tests are required again. As we will move
directly to 3.0 RC1, the QA team will wait for all remaining blockers to
be fixed before running them again, though.
* 7 blockers left to fix before releasing 3.0 RC1. 3 of them only affect
the bugzilla.org website (updating the documentation, documenting new
features, building required RPM packages for distros which don't have
* 3.0 RC1 won't be ready before the second half of February, probably.
* We will have some help from the Mozilla Corporation for the Press
Release when Bugzilla 3.0 will come out.
* "Make Bugzilla easily pluggable" summaries where Bugzilla should go
for future major releases. In other words, it should be easier for 3rd
parties to write plugins. This will let us focus on the bug tracking
tool aspect of the product, but allowing extensions to be added.
* Our next meeting will take place on January 23, same time.
