Bugzilla and Flags

Howdy committers, we just wanted to make you aware of some upcoming changes to bugzilla that the Foundation (and a personal agenda of mine) has been working hard at (thanks Denis).

They are detailed in the following two bugs:
In the simplest words, flags have been added to each bug to aid searching. The flags are:
  • reviewed: request a code review/flag as reviewed
  • pmc_approval: request PMC/project lead approval/flag as reviewed
  • documentation: flag to indicate documentation has been updated.
Also, flags have been added to patches so committers have the option to +/- a patch indicating to the patch contributor that he/she should redo the patch (see picture below).

If people have thoughts, we encourage committers to comment on the bug report or discuss it on the newsgroups.
