Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 178232
RFE - "UPSTREAM" should be an OPEN status, not a CLOSED one.
Last modified: 2014-12-01 18:08:22 EST
Description of problem:
Project users (such as Fedora users) need a single point of contact for bugs,
namely the project's (Fedora's) Bugzilla.
Currently, if a bug is decided to be an upstream issue it gets CLOSED with an
UPSTREAM status with no requirement or incentive on the maintainer to forward
As far as the user is concerned the bug hasn't been fixed.
I propose that the UPSTREAM status be changed to an OPEN status rather than a
closed one, and that there be a requirement that an upstream URL must be
provided for tracking before this status can be entered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bugzilla Version 2.18-rh
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
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.
Still valid with 3.4
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.

Still the same applies. No change with the upgrade.
