Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 406661
Announcements about Bugzilla changes on frontpage
Last modified: 2014-10-12 18:45:50 EDT
Please can we have a published changelog linked to the front page of bugzilla, recording all non-trivial user-visible changes and bug fixes? Please can announcements about significant forthcoming changes always be mentioned in the news section on the front page?
Voting for future Bugzilla features will be opening soon. Announcement of start date will be posted to the email@example.com and other broader audience.
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.

Still should be improved IMO

I guess someone needs to make a decision if we want to do this. I don't have any objection. We can add a hook that displays recent changes (which would be in an extension file) that displays the changes.
We would update the release documentation to also mention that this file needs to be updated. Obviously we would only mention non public bugs if the user has the redhat privilege.
