Bugzilla links issue

Post by swight »

Currently all of the bugzilla links are dead including those using the forum bug tag. I was wondering if there was anything in the works to get these links pointing to the equivalent bugs on the new system. The most glaring case of this is in the news item about the second developer contract. Currently no one who is interested could find out exactly which bugs are being worked on as part of the contract. Even if it isn't fixed on the forums this should be spot fixed.

It will take us a while to find and discover all the oldies bugzilla links.

We found several and we fixed them but it is really difficul to find all of them.
If you can tell us here all the links you find,and where they are, you will help us a lot!
I make this proposal open to anyone willing to help reporting them :)

You can easily use Google to find a list of Bugzilla links in the forum:
http://www.google.com/search?q=site:htt ... m+show_bug

This is easily modified to check other locations on the site.

Víctor, rather then doing that tedious work of fixing bugzilla links, you could simply redirect them.

That would still require somehow generating a mapping between the old and new and linking them.

This new bug tracker system allows to find old bugs either by their Bugzilla URLs (http://www.reactos.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=…), or by issue #s. Thus, you need a script which will make search requests to Jira.

It would be great to modify the [bug] BB template as well. Do I get it right when I expect all "common" bugs to be CORE-xxx?
