Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

I don't think this is really something we want to support.
Edits are attributed to the accounts that they are made with.

I think this is a bad idea for MediaWiki and definitely a very bad idea for installation on Wikimedia projects. But this is the extension request component which I think should not be closed to silly ideas:)
