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 almost 3 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.

  • Assignee changed from Robinson Tryon to Christian Lohmaier

#3 Updated by Florian Effenberger over 2 years ago

#4 Updated by Florian Effenberger about 2 years ago

#5 Updated by Florian Effenberger over 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 over 1 year 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 over 1 year 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.

#9 Updated by Xisco Fauli Tarazona about 1 year ago

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.

#10 Updated by Florian Effenberger 5 months ago

Is there any update planned in the near future?
Are we up to date especially wrt. security patches?

Last week a minor version of Bugzilla was released.
I plan to update it this week/next week

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

#12 Updated by Florian Effenberger 2 months ago

Are we up to date for the moment?

We still need to upgrade to 5.0.4. It was upgraded on the test instance and it needs to be deployed in prod now. Waiting for Infra to take action

#13 Updated by Guilhem Moulin 2 months ago

Given that vm150 is our last Debian 7 (Wheezy, EOL May 31) VM we decided to trash it and deploy Bugzilla on a fresh Debian 9 VM using our new salt baseline. ETA is last week of May.

#14 Updated by Guilhem Moulin about 2 months ago

Just moved the instance to a brand new Debian 9 (codename Stretch) VM, and upgraded Bugzilla to 5.0.4.
