Description

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

History

#1 Updated by Robinson Tryon over 2 years ago

There are a handful of relevant pages on the wiki pertaining to Bugzilla:

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.

#2 Updated by Florian Effenberger almost 2 years ago

  • Assignee changed from Robinson Tryon to Christian Lohmaier

#3 Updated by Florian Effenberger almost 2 years ago

#4 Updated by Florian Effenberger over 1 year ago

#5 Updated by Florian Effenberger about 1 year ago

  • Assignee changed from Christian Lohmaier to Xisco Fauli Tarazona

Re-assigning to Xisco, as discussed during the team meeting and after ACK from Björn
There are other tickets that might pertain to this, like #1063, #1910, #2007, #964 - will have a look at these separately

Cloph and Guilhem are fallback for Bugzilla maintenance, so best is you sync on that

#6 Updated by Florian Effenberger 10 months ago

Our Bugzilla instance seems to be on the recent 5.0 version, that's great news! :-)
Just to know whose pile this is: Do you (Xisco) handle the updates or is this done by Guilhem or Cloph, so we can assign the ticket accordingly?

#7 Updated by Xisco Fauli Tarazona 10 months ago

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.
