information about the “needinfo” flag

a few notes about the needinfo flag which was added to bugzilla.mozilla.org last week, and enabled across all products today:

  • with a few minor exceptions, it’s a normal bugzilla flag
    • searching, mail notifications, etc, all function like any other flag
    • you can use the “requests” page to search for bugs with this flag set
  • if the requestee comments on the bug, the needinfo flag is automatically cleared
  • you can’t set the flag to + or – .. either will result in the flag being cleared
