Description of problem:
I often find myself wanting to see a list of the bugs for which I'm on
the CC: list. Though it's not terribly hard to do a search on the CC:
field of open bugs, it would be nice if the "My Bugs" tab displayed a
list of such bugs.
That way, the "My Bugs" tab would show a complete list of all bugs
that I'm involved with, not just the ones that I reported or have been
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I would like to second the request for cc:. Here's a specific reason
why: If I file a bug, and it turns out to be a duplicate, my bug gets
closed and I'm added as a CC on the earlier bug. *but I'm still very
interested in the results*. To me, being CC on a bug is just as
important as having filed it originally.
Also, I would like to have "my bugs" expanded to include *all* bugs
I'm involved with, e.g. how about the closed bugs? resolved
Seconded. Or rather thirded :-)
I was going to file this request as a bug myself, such that I could keep track
of it in `my bugs'. But I found it was already filed, so now I can't get it in
`my bugs'. The same would happen had I actually filed it and then got my bug
marked as a dupe.
Perhaps overloading Cc: with `showing up in My bugs' is imperfect, and we'd be
better off with a separate `Add to my bugs' setting?
Or how bout adding another section to the Front Page screen that has bugs that I
am Cc'ed on? Just a question. My Bugs is just a pre-canned query that I can
simple add addition search criteria to that would bring in bugs that have the
bugzilla member on the cc list.
That's not quite the same, since it forces people to make a distinction between
bugs they initially filed and other bugs they ran into, got interested in or got
duped into. Sure enough it's just a minor inconvenience so I could live with
that, but if you replaced, in the pre-canned queries, user = reporter with (user
= reporter or user in cc) (or however you'd spell that in bugzilla's db schema
and query language), that would be fine for me, but I suppose some might prefer
to make the distinction between being Cc:ed and being the original reporter.
Perhaps we should expand this to request a few things of the old My Bugs (now renamed "My Front
- ability to show bugs we are cc'd on
- ability to show bugs we reported and are assigned to someone else now
- show a group of bugs that we were involved with but are now CLOSED or RESOLVED
- I imagine 'developers' (as opposed to those of us who are mainly 'reporters') have a very
different view of what the front page oughtta look like.
- maybe it's time for a very simple set of preferences or a choice between a bug-filer front page or a
bug-fixer front page....
+1 for including a frontpage list of bugs that you are Cc-ed on (i.e
monitoring). It would save having to create a custom search query.
The could have the same sections (New, In Progress), but with "Monitored Issues"
replacing "Open Issues"
"Monitored Issues: New"
You are monitoring the bug reported by somebody else but nobody has accepted it yet.
"Monitored Issues: In Progress"
You are monitoring a bug reported by somebody else, the developer accepted the
bug and is hopefully working on it.
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.

This bug/enhancement request is still present.
Why is this bug set to "NEEDINFO"? What info is needed from me?
Clearing needinfo? flag.
Will investigate implementing this into the 3.2 frontpage.cgi.
It appears that https://bugzilla.redhat.com/frontpage.cgi now includes a list of bugs that you are Cc'ed on, which is great! So closing this bug.
