Description of problem:
Attempting to packge testopia c.f. 

bugzilla-rw-paths.patch patches Bugzilla/Constants.pm so that 
  'extensionsdir' => "/var/lib/bugzilla/extensions",
rather than the upstream "$libpath/extensions", which would be

From my reading of the bugzilla extension mechanism, it seems to contain code,
templates and other non-writable files, so /usr/share seems a better location.

I've changed that patch in my latest attempt at packaging testopia (see
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=450013#c10 ) so that it doesn't
affect the "extensionsdir" line.

Is this a change that should be made to the bugzilla package?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 3 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-03-01 04:02:21 UTC

Can you provide more info about this ?

the testopia review request has been closed, do you still need help with this issue ?

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2009-03-03 18:21:40 UTC
Given that testopia can't go in Fedora, I suspect this bug isn't significant enough to be worth fixing.

I think the patched directory is in the wrong location, and the upstream location is better.  If there are other bz extensions it might be worth fixing this, and reverting to the upstream location.  I don't feel strongly about this though.

Hope this helps

Comment 5 Emmanuel Seyman 2009-07-31 09:12:21 UTC
Discussing this bug with itamar, we realized that we actually package the extensions directory in /usr/share/bugzilla/ so the patch is actually invalid.

I've removed that part of the patch and tagged a rebuild for F-12.
