Description Havoc Pennington 2002-12-14 03:38:50 UTC
Tracking bugs:
 - can't be used in a query, so I can't e.g. save 
   a query for all deps of a tracking bug owned
   by me

 - I can't query for all bugs not yet assigned to 
   some milestone, i.e. it's hard to keep track 
   of which bugs I've looked at so far. 
   (could also be addressed via keywords, 
    using a "triaged" keyword)

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-20 02:11:55 UTC
The blocking issue here is that we would need the milestone field to be private, 
as the milestone-like tracking bugs are.

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-02-15 13:39:18 UTC
mcp makes this largely obsolete.

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2006-04-08 17:56:01 UTC
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
