happy bmo push day!

the following changes have been pushed to bugzilla.mozilla.org:

  • [964299] bzr checkin regexp is a little too tight
  • [76498] QuickSearch: support comparison operators other than substring
  • [893641] change the maxlength of the component field in search results
  • [964856] Add a crash-signature field to Android Background Services
  • [957340] Make updates to the Gear Request Bug Form
  • [105865] bugzilla should pay attention to linebreaks when making bugnumbers to links

the changes to quicksearch are worth highlighting:
the default operator, colon (:), has always performed a substring match of the value. the following operators are now also supported:

  • : (substring)
    summary:food
    search for bugs where the summary contains foo
  • = (equals):
    summary=foo
    search for bugs where the summary is exactly foo
  • != (not-equals):
    summary!=foo
    search for bugs where the summary is not foo
  • > (greater-than):
    creation_ts>-2w
    search for bugs where that were created between two weeks ago and now, excluding bugs exactly two weeks old
  • >= (greater-than-equals):
    creation_ts>=-2w
    search for bugs where that were created between two weeks ago and now, including bugs exactly two weeks old
  • < (less-than):
    creation_ts<-2w
    search for bugs where that were created more than two weeks ago, excluding bugs exactly two weeks old
  • <= (less-than-equals):
    creation_ts<=-2w
    search for bugs where that were created more than two weeks ago, including bugs exactly two weeks old

renaming mozilla-corporation-confidential to mozilla-employee-confidential

in the early days of bugzilla.mozilla.org there were three bugzilla security groups which covered all mozilla employees: mozilla-corporation-confidential (mozilla corporation employees), mozilla-foundation-confidential (mozilla foundation employees), and mozilla-confidential (both corporation and foundation). as is the way, things change. the mozilla-confidential group got deprecated and eventually disabled. mozilla-corporation-confidential’s usage within bugzilla has expanded and is now the default security group for a large number of products. mozilla itself has made efforts to remove the distinction between the foundation and the corporation.

this has resulted in bugs which should be visible to all employees but were not (see bug 941671).

late on wednesday the 19th of feburary we will be renaming the mozilla-corporation-confidential group to mozilla-employee-confidential, and will update the group’s membership to include mozilla foundation staff.

  • if you are a bugzilla user (mozilla staff or otherwise), no action is required.
  • if you maintain a system which interfaces with bugzilla, an update may be required to adapt to the new name.
