Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 615932
Report can't file bugs to Bugzilla anymore
Last modified: 2010-07-19 09:34:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda bug filing mechanism which is using report can't file bugs to Bugzilla anymore. The buttons that I now see are:
FTP to dropbox.redhat.com
Red Hat Global Support
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hit a bug in anaconda and select Save or
2. go to /etc/report.d and `grep bugzilla *'
No support for bugzilla.redhat.com
Users can file bugs directly into bugzilla.redhat.com
This is change in behavior from previous snapshots.
The ability to file bugs directly in bugzilla is a big advantage for Red Hat QE teams. Please add it back.
This is intentional.
In order to receive the support they have paid for, customers must report bugs through Red Hat's customer portal. Including bugzilla in the list of default options would at best be confusing, and could imply that customer can receive official support through bugzilla.
During the beta it is our policy that beta testers report bugs directly to bugzilla, so it was appropriate that we include the bugzilla target in report during the beta.
The Fedora and EPEL versions of report will continue to have the bugzilla plugin and target (and won't have the RHT portal plugin or target), and those who need/want the bugzilla plugin in RHEL-5 can use the EPEL one.
It has been suggested/requested that we include and support report's bugzilla in RHEL6, but not include in the target list by default. This would be possible, but would require that the package python-bugzilla be added to the list of supported RHEL6 packages, and I can't be the support resource for that package.
