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 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-06 13:49:57 UTC
Hallo!

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]]
Comment 1 Rob Church 2005-12-06 13:54:08 UTC
Confirmed bugs aren't resolved bugs.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-06 13:59:12 UTC
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.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2005-12-06 16:30:28 UTC
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
WORKSFORME.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-12-06 23:46:27 UTC
Reinhardt, are you thinking of enabling the UNCONFIRMED option by default to distinguish from NEW?

Yes! A sample search link is
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/query.cgi?product=Bugzilla&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED%2CNEW&chfield=%5BBug%20creation%5D&chfieldfrom=0d&remaction=&query_format=advanced

> 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.
Comment 7 Brian Jason Drake 2005-12-21 02:19:43 UTC
The real issue seems to be about the UNCONFIRMED option; updated summary 
accordingly.
Comment 8 William Bumgarner (en:Zsinj) 2006-04-20 22:54:22 UTC
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:
http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/tip/html/faq.html#faq-admin-enable-unconfirmed
Comment 9 Chad H. 2009-08-11 14:10:01 UTC
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.

IRC cabal doesn't see the point.
Comment 12 MZMcBride 2014-02-02 06:40:19 UTC
We now have UNCONFIRMED and bug reports from untrusted bug reporters (e.g., newly registered accounts) default to this status, as I understand it.
