github pull requests and bugzilla
October 21, 2013
Posted by on
we recently pushed a small change to bugzilla.mozilla.org to make things slightly easier for teams using bugzilla to track github pull requests. when an attachment contains just a github pull request url, bugzilla will redirect to that url when the attachment is viewed.
the easiest way to do this is to use paste text as attachment:
paste the url, provide a description, and ensure patch is not checked.
after you submit the attachment, bugzilla will change the content-type to x-github-pullrequest.
clicking on the attachment will redirect you to github.
- currently only github pull requests are supported
- the attachment content cannot contain anything other than the url
- any existing text/plain github pull request attachments should already have their content-type adjusted
- html files with a meta-redirect to github have not been altered, nor will they trigger bugzilla’s redirection mechanism
