Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 327421
Out of date docs - README.fedora
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
README.fedora points back to an old (2.22) version of the bugzilla docs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Review /usr/share/doc/bugzilla-3.0.2/README.fedora
Bugzilla is a powerful bug tracking system used by a large number of open
In order to use Bugzilla, you will first need to configure it for your
environment. The first step to doing this is to run the checksetup.pl
script, which will perform module version checks and create an initial
config file in /etc/bugzilla called localconfig. You then need to ensure
the values in this file are accurate for your environment.
Once this is done, you may need to modify default settings for your database
to ensure it accepts Bugzilla data properly. Please see
http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/2.22/html/configuration.html for specifics of

Lastly, simply re-run checksetup.pl to populate the database tables, set up

It would probably be better to drop the Fedora specific docs, and just let the
QUICKSTART file serve in its place. It at least explains the database steps,
which are missing from README.fedora
The purpose of this doc is to detail the fedora specific changes I've made from
upstream (e.g. the presence of /etc/bugzilla) - if you have additional
information you'd like added to this file, I'll be gald to consider it, but this
file will not be removed.
I would suggest at least pointing the docs at the 3.0 series. A suggestion to
read the QUICKSTART would also be worth adding.
