MediaZilla is a great BugZilla theme, and no doubt a lot of work has gone into making it so over the years. It allows you to have a seamless browsing experience between your wiki and bug tracker, and when combined with certain patches available on the Internet , you can even experience the joy of having automatic links between the two. If the authors of MediaZilla, which I understand to be Tim Starling, Brion and others, are willing to open source the latest version of it, many other development teams could potentially benefit. The last tarball was created in 2005, and it is no doubt a pain to go and figure out where the theme is and where that ftp directory is every time. It makes much more sense to simply add this directory to the MediaWiki subversion repository and from here on out "svn commit" the changes. Who knows, this could encourage community participation in updating the theme from here on out, perhaps even lessening the work load of our beloved core devs (just "svn update" to reap the benefits)!
Cheers and see you at Wikimania :)
PS: As a refresher, the standard location of the theme is '/var/lib/bugzilla/template/en/custom/` and after any changes are made you simply need to run 'sudo /usr/share/bugzilla/lib/checksetup.pl`
Bugzilla is open source: http://bugzilla.org
This bug is not for releasing the bugzilla source code. That would be silly. Please take the time to read my comment above. This would be a really trivial thing to do!
