Description Arjan van de Ven 2003-02-24 17:26:02 UTC
Description of problem:

sometimes customers think a bug is a dupe of another bug while it's not. This
leads to a lot of "pollution" of the original bug while we need to ask the
customer to file a new bug too. It would be nice if bugzilla had an option to
split off specified commends into a new bug

Comment 1 David Lawrence 2006-04-08 18:02:22 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.
