In the no good deed goes unpunished category...
We used to use the Status Whiteboard to keep track of which clients had
reported a particular bug so that our support staff could notify them
when it's fixed. I transferred this to a custom field so that support
could set it when creating the bug and also so that it could be called
"Clients" instead of "Whiteboard".
Now they want it to be more like the CC list, but pulling from a
different group of users than the CC list. The main reason for
separating the lists is that our bugzilla is on a private LAN with no
connection to the outside world, so we can't just have bugzilla email
Is there any plan to expand custom fields to allow this sort of thing or
should I tell them it just ain't gonna happen?

Thanks. Thats an improvement. Not to be greedy, but is there any way
to include client name and email address? You could list multiple
clients similar to the way you do QA Contact.

I have added a custom field called "Clients" to our bugzilla and
transferred the contents of the Status Whiteboard field to it.
There are two advantages to this.
1. Being a custom field, I was able to click a toggle to allow it to be
set on creation of new bugs.
2. The name makes sense for what we use it for.
The Status Whiteboard field is still there but it's now blank. We can
now use it for the purpose for which it was intended, which is just a
place for quick notes about the current status of the bug.
