Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827552
[Feature-request] Assigning multiple releases/versions to a bug
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:30:59 EDT
I know that the RHEL team has previously decided against allowing a single bug to be filed against multiple releases/versions. Is the Fedora team bound by this decision as well? If not, I encourage them to allow one bug to apply to multiple releases since its common for the same bug to exist in both of the currently supported releases and rawhide. The current policy leads to a lot of duplicate reports and EOL closures of bugs that still exist in newer versions.
Bugzilla requires you to pick a version; whether the maintainer treats it as applying to multiple versions when they decide to close it with an update is up to the maintiner.
Since bugzilla requires you to pick a version, closing as CANTFIX. Please reopen if I'm misunderstanding what you're asking.
Please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=520494#c2
I sounds like RedHat Bugzilla can be configured to work differently for different products based on the product teams preference. I can confirm that selecting multiple versions for Jboss bugs in the RedHat Bugzilla is allowed.
OK, was going to move this to a FESCo ticket, but since you closed this...
