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.

Description Pcb21 2005-08-09 09:04:42 UTC
for a longer discussion.)

There is considerable support in the community for adding the following:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wiki/Wikipedia:Votes_for_deletion/

to the en.wikipedia robots.txt - the reason being that deletion debates are
hitting for the top of search engine searches when Wikipedia has no content on
the topic (because it has been deleted!) And VfD pages are hardly Wikipedia's
most attractive side....
