New Bugzilla on the way


Recommended Posts

cool, thanks. I think the problem with the signature is that the keys for the backports media have got messed up _again_. i am working on a proposal to just sign all packages with the same key, which would avoid this hassle once and for all...

The new Bugzilla is up and running.

After a few weeks of testing, we have upgraded Mandriva's Bugzilla. We are now running Bugzilla 3.0 with almost no patches (as compared to the previously installation, which was a heavily patched Bugzilla 2.x). The main good news about this change is that the new Bugzilla is a lot faster than the old one! You might notice a few other changes too.


There's now a guided bug entry process, which will help you report bugs with all the necessary information.


We no longer use packages as components: we have just a small set of general categories, and you can add the affected package as a separate field, if you know it. The major advantage of this change is speed: it's the main reason why the new Bugzilla is significantly faster than the old one (ten times faster, in some cases).


There are a few other changes, but they're less visible. This upgrade should help us maintain Bugzilla better in future and the increase in speed is good for everyone!
