More on malone

by on Feb.28, 2006, under Geeky, Linux

I have to agree with Mark’s latest blog post regarding launchpad being able to open bugs in other bugzillas… There’s been a couple of times when I’ve wanted to open a bug in Debian through launchpad – as It would be easier to do it that way.

However, I’ve thought of another solution. I’d love to see bugzilla adopt some sort of “Global” account system – where you can use your bugzilla account from one bugtracker in another. Sort of the way openID and Jabber do things – the whole account@bugzilla. This would then open up the doors to be able to cross post the same bug across many bugzillas.

I believe this is similar to what launchpad intends to do eventually – however – I think it would be better as native bugzilla code.

I mean – one centralised “bugzilla” may be good… but – a distributed bugzilla would be even better

    Centralized bugzilla user database is something I’ve wanted for a long time. There’s even apparently a couple of proposed implementations available, according to the well-informed people on freenode #JoiIto. Why it hasn’t happened is something I simply don’t get. Not receiving an e-mail notification every time some punter adds or removes their name to the CC list for the bug would be nice too. Heck, automatic notification should be disabled by default!

    And I think agreeing on a distributed bugtracker protocol would be even better, so that all bugtrackers (malone, bugzilla, trac, …) can implement it! :-)

    these things are planned in bugzilla except no one is there to do the work, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123130
