Description of problem:

i am missing bugzilla itself in fedora.
with all the different hardware/os/applications/users/admins/... in
 our environment @ work
 and my environment @home
bugzilla could be a solution to keep the overview of the problems and
their solutions.
i hope that you can understand what i mean with buggy users and buggy
admins :-)

in short words:
it would be nice if bugzilla itself would be in future releases

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ ls
bugzilla-2.16.4.tar.gz  bugzilla-redhat-20031120.tar.gz

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

nothing found

Expected results:
should be in fedora

Good idea.

I assume the license is not a problem, since Mozilla has the same
license. (I'm not an expert on licenses.)

You chose component "httpd". Isn't "distribution" the general
component for requesting additional software to be included in fc1? If
that is correct, then I suggest you change the component to

Do you prefer the original bugzilla version, using mysql, or the
version modified by redhat to use postgresql?

Comment 2 shrek-m 2004-02-08 10:32:58 UTC
http -> distribution  by  jorton@redhat.com

what about:
redhat-version with additional support for mysql,
but i bet that redhat prefers for several reasons (eg. license) psql.

Bugzilla really does sound like an 'Extras' sort of package, not part
of the core os.

Comment 4 Bart Martens 2004-02-09 05:28:26 UTC
For who's wondering what Red Hat means by "Extras":

Comment 5 Bart Martens 2004-02-20 06:25:27 UTC
I think there is more to package than just Bugzilla itself. Some
needed packages are already in Core, like perl-DBD-MySQL (or
perl-DBD-Pg) and perl-DBI. Should all the other packages go in Extras,
or should some of them go in Core? Maybe some of these packages are
already packaged elsewhere, and can easily be moved/copied to Extras
or Core?

Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2004-08-02 17:53:31 UTC
I personally can't see a real need for a bugzilla package in Fedora 
Core/Extras/... but I'm curious what's going on, now...

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-02 19:31:10 UTC
Closing as WONTFIX for now, on the supposition that it's better for
