It would be probably a good idea to add a CONFIRMED resolution to MediaZilla.
The bug would still be open and show in relevant searches.
best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Confirmed bugs aren't resolved bugs.
No they aren't. But I thing it would be better to have an idea if another person
was able to reproduce the bug then having no feedback at all.
No, because a resolved bug would then appear greyed out and few people would
bother to look at it, ergo it wouldn't get solved. Other people can post
comments to confirm bugs; bugs which can't be confirmed tend to be resolved
Reinhardt, are you thinking of enabling the UNCONFIRMED option by default to distinguish from NEW?

Yes! A sample search link is

This comes up with an "Advanced Search" form where the only options selected
are "Product: Bugzilla" and "where one or more of the following changed: [Bug
creation]". "Status: UNCONFIRMED" is on the form but not selected.
The real issue seems to be about the UNCONFIRMED option; updated summary
Bugzilla works in such a way that bugs have to have a minimum number of votes to
be promoted from UNCONFIRMED to NEW. /If/ this is still an issue, then in the
editproducts.cgi page the "Number of votes a bug in this product needs to
automatically get out of the UNCONFIRMED state" values needs to be set higher.
That should fix this.
This process is outlined at:
As an update to this:
This is not possible right now per: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:FAQ:Administrative_Questions#How_do_I_make_it_so_that_bugs_can_have_an_UNCONFIRMED_status.3F as the UNCONFIRMED status is currently tied to the votes system. We don't use votes here for anything useful, so I don't think we should enable the voting just to get UNCONFIRMED available to us.
There's an open bug at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=162060 requesting UNCONFIRMED to be decoupled from the voting system. Marking this as LATER and adding +upstream keyword, as there's nothing we can do here right now.
Status: RESOLVED FIXED
on bug 162060
IRC cabal doesn't see the point.
We now have UNCONFIRMED and bug reports from untrusted bug reporters (e.g., newly registered accounts) default to this status, as I understand it.
