Under this section is found Under Tara's leadership, some of the regular contributors were coerced into taking more responsibility, - I'm curious as to what "more responsibility means" it is rather vague and unclear to me.Dan Aquinas (talk) 19:48, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

To Do[edit]

Er, I know this is a lame question. but could Bugzilla be a "to do" tracking system for a person?

I don't see why not. JIP | Talk 08:02, 6 May 2005 (UTC)
I would second that opinion, although it might be overkill for that task - depends on how elegant/complex you want to be. Dan Aquinas (talk) 19:12, 30 September 2010 (UTC)


Bugzilla is a general-purpose bug-tracking tool originally developed and used by the Mozilla Foundation.

Wasn't Bugzilla developed before Mozilla was open sourced, under the auspices of Netscape? --Bletch 01:06, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

The earliest mentioning of the word Bugzilla that I found was in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in season 4, episode 21, minute 16: Michelangelo (watching TV): "Not yet, dudes, Bugzilla is about to cream the giant snail!" [1]

I've got a really BAD bug[edit]

I've got a "Sock Bug" so bad it'll make Bugzilla puke. It keeps turning up like a bad penny.Martial Law 07:14, 15 April 2006 (UTC) :)

Its a real nasty one. Martial Law 07:18, 15 April 2006 (UTC) :)

Odd history removal[edit]

Ok, I remember that this page had a link to Wikipedia:Bugzilla. However, now it doesn't and the edit history reveals nothing. What happened? -Slash-μιλώ 05:46, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Feature Requests[edit]

Why does this redirect from Feature Requests, maybe its just me, but I fail to make the connection

Zarro Boogs found[edit]

'Zarro Boogs found' is actually a variable in the Bugzilla templates. Therefore, you can change the message displayed.

Article seems a bit short.[edit]

Anyone else think so? It isnt exactly a stub, but I would still consider it too short to give me much more than a general overview of what to program is.

When was the first release?[edit]

The intro and history paragraph say it was first released in 1998. The infobox says 2001, with a date not mentioned elsewhere in the article. Which is it? --Golbez (talk) 16:41, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

I was brave and changed the date to 1998. The date is also mentioned in which references a newsgroup post (which I referenced in the article) supporting the 1998 date. (talk) 08:16, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Merged Zarro boogs into Bugzilla#Zarro boogs[edit]

I've merged Zarro boogs into this article, as the term has no independent notability. -- Dan Griscom (talk) 11:40, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Redirect: WONTFIX[edit]

"WONTFIX" redirects here but this page contains no information about or mention of WONTFIX. Hyacinth (talk) 02:18, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Bugzilla as slang[edit]

I belong to several support forums and mailing lists, most of them Fedora related, but not all. In all of them, I've seen members told to "file a bugzilla" or "there's already a bugzilla for that," instead of using the more obvious (to the layman) "bug." I could easily support this with links to various threads on forums, but I'm not sure if that's the right type of citation for this. Thoughts? JDZeff (talk) 23:54, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

It could be that they are using Bugzilla. Forums are not even WP:PRIMARY sources. There would be a lot of interpretation around such comments, so unless you could find a reliable source, we should not add it. Walter Görlitz (talk) 13:46, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
