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

  • [849102] mydashboard should lazy-load the ‘last change’ information
  • [962424] jobqueue’s worker process should process messages in batches
  • [978146] activity entry when setting flags isn’t split across multiple rows

  • [1022923] Add index to bug_user_last_visit.last_visit_ts
  • [956892] collapsed comments should display tags to indicate the reason for auto-collapsing
  • [880669] Extend current BzAPI BMO extension to contain compatibility changes on top of native rest
  • [649691] Add a “mentor” and “mentored bug type” field to bmo

after a herculean effort by dkl, this week’s update brings native bzapi support to bugzilla’s production infrastructure.  bzapi operates as a proxy server external to bugzilla, developed and operated by gerv. it is a reflection of gerv’s commitment and abilities that bzapi is by far the primary api which mozilians use to interface with bzapi. moving bzapi into bugzilla itself should improve performance and stability.

the plan with regards to migration is to continue to run the current bzapi proxy server until we’re happy with this code. at that point we’ll redirect bzapi calls made against the api-dev endpoint to the new endpoint.

please help us test this by changing your endpoints from https://api-dev.bugzilla.mozilla.org/latest/ to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/bzapi/

eg.
old: https://api-dev.bugzilla.mozilla.org/latest/bug/880669
new: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/bzapi/bug/880669

if you find any issues don’t hesitate to file bugs in the bzapi-compatibility component.

bugzilla can now show bugs that have been updated since you last visited them

thanks to dylan‘s work on bug 489028, bugzilla now tracks when you view a bug, allowing you to search for bugs which have been updated since you last visited them.

on bugzilla.mozilla.org this has been added to “my dashboard“:

my dashboard - last visited

bugzilla will only track a bug if you are involved in it (you have to be the reporter, assignee, qa-contact, or on the cc list), and if you have javascript enabled.

the “last visit” field can be used as part of a custom search, and is most useful when used in conjunction with the “%last_changed%” pronoun (which expands to the bug’s last-changed timestamp).

last visited - custom search

firebot has a new owner

to echo wolf’s post – “The End of Firebot – A New Beginning”, i’m the new maintainer of the irc bot firebot.

firebot provided an excellent service, and i’m happy to ensure firebot’s continued existence.

i’d like to thank wolf for running firebot for a decade, and for allowing me to take over.
