Our Bugzilla instance needs regular maintenance. This involves:
- updating to most recent minor/micro version
- dealing with locked accounts
- helping new users to confirm their accounts
- managing user rights

Often, particular problems will take a bit of time to resolve, but will end up being a nuance on the user's end. Notes, warnings, and documentation helps reduce the workload, but does not entirely eliminate the inquiries.

So far I haven't handled any Bugzilla update as 5.0.3 ( the latest ) was released on May 16, 2016, before I stated working for the TDF. I'll sync with Cloph and Guillhem once a new release comes out to see who will handle it.
Still seems to be the state of play. There's 5.1.1 - maintained in parallel to 5.0.3 - but unless there's some strong demand, let's not touch a running system and just regularly check for updates. If there's an RSS/mailing list for BZ update announces, let's get subscribed to that.

According to this page https://www.bugzilla.org/news/#release503:
Bugzilla 5.1.1 is an unstable development release. This release has not received QA testing from the Bugzilla Project, and should not be used in production environments.

Please avoid editing my old comments, but instead reply with a separate comment - otherwise I get no notification whatsoever of the change/reply. :-)

Seems 5.0.6 is out - any urge to upgrade, or just irrelevant fixes for us?
Nothing urgent: https://www.bugzilla.org/releases/5.0.6/release-notes.html . OTOH there is a lot of code refactoring and code style changes that made rebasing our changes difficult. This was discussed in the Feb 12 team call:
- [q] Task #1402: Bugzilla maintenance - https://redmine.documentfoundation.org/issues/1402
https://github.com/bugzilla/bugzilla/releases (bugs.tdf currently runs 5.0.4)
guilhem: rebased tdf customisation on top of 5.0.X, ready for testing on vm144
- Xisco will test after his return from Japan.
Deploying the changes on vm144 is still blocking on me.
