Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1257786
Decide which new features of Bugzilla 5.0 to use in Red Hat Bugzilla
Last modified: 2015-11-22 18:38:36 EST
The upstream Bugzilla 5.0 introduces a number of new features. We need to decide which of those features we wish to enable in Red Hat Bugzilla, and then:
* Ensure that any required configuration changes make it into the right places (e.g. Ansible scripts).
* Ensure that we list the new features in any announcements we make before and after the upgrade.
* Ensure that test procedures are updated to include testing of those features.
Things of note:
Improved WebServices +
Improved Caching using Memcached -
Ability to Tag Bug Comments +
Improved Bug Group Membership Checking + we already have this
Improved Documentation for Users and Administrators +
multiple aliases + any migration costs??
eTag headers, use in extensions?
"All extensions which define new public WebService methods must list them in a PUBLIC_METHODS constant. Methods which are not listed there will not be accessible remotely." Might affect extensions.
There are plenty of other changes but not of note for development or deployment.
