Description Penelope Fudd 2007-01-20 23:05:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Feature request: As bugs are contained in packages, and are eliminated with
other packages, it would make sense to track packages in bugzilla.  For
instance, I just updated my system with yum, and X broke.  I found out what
package was responsible, and I'd like to report a bug to the author of that
package, or search for workarounds.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bugzilla Version 2.18-rh

How reproducible:

While it turned out that the package happened to come from the Livna repository
and isn't Redhat's responsibility, my wish is still in force.  :-)

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2008-09-16 16:55:06 UTC
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.

Comment 3 Penelope Fudd 2008-09-16 18:45:58 UTC
The wish hasn't been implemented, so I guess it's still relevant.  :-)

It's probably too much of a stretch to change Bugzilla to accommodate this.

It may be better to have a separate website that lists every version of every package ever released by Redhat or the Fedora group, colored red if there's a confirmed bug inside that version of the package, hyperlinked to the bug report(s) about that version of the package, and with a link to the latest bug-free version.

Of course, just typing 'yum update' should do the right thing, except when the latest version of a package has a bug.


Comment 4 David Lawrence 2010-01-15 17:32:21 UTC
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.

Comment 5 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 21:40:26 UTC
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.
