At the Bugzilla project meeting on 2015-03-25[1] the project lead and
assistant leads agreed on two major changes to Bugzilla's source-code

1. CVS support is officially dropped as of now. 4.0 is the last version
that was released on CVS, and it will be EOLed when 5.0 comes out (very
soon; rc3 was just released). In the event of a release on the 4.0
branch before it is EOLed, any Bugzilla installations that have not
migrated to bzr or git will have to apply patches[3] to upgrade, which
will continue to be distributed as usual. Bugzilla site admins are
strongly encouraged to migrate to pulling from[4] as
soon as possible.

2. Bazaar hosting has been officially switched from to is already active and syncing changes
from is no longer syncing changes and
will soon be shut down. Any sites upgrading from *must*
do one of the following to apply any future upgrades, in order of

* Switch to upgrading from[5]
* Switch to pulling from See instructions at
* Apply the released patch. will continue to mirror changes from
for the 4.0, 4.2, and 4.4 branches as long as they are supported. Note
that, at the moment, master/trunk is being mirrored as well, but no
other branches, including and subsequent to 5.0, will be mirrored to, and trunk mirroring may cease at any time.

Note that is waiting on a proper certificate[6]; please
use plain http until this is resolved.

The Bugzilla team apologizes for any inconvenience. Please see our
support options[7] if you have trouble migrating.
