Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 151521
RFE: Bugzilla should choose a proper default version in enter_bug based on product
Last modified: 2014-12-01 18:08:13 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #151510 +++
Bugzilla should have a way to decide that a particular version should be
selected by default when entering a new bug. Usually the latest release.
Currently people have to decide from the description or on their own which one
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.

With Bugzilla 4.2, you can mark old versions as inactive. This will prevent new and existing bugs to be assigned against an inactive version (unless it is already selected for an existing bug).
Trying to automatically guess the correct version of a product is bad, since it will lead to people ignoring the field rather than making an explicit decision, IMO.
