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 Rotem Liss 2006-04-17 08:30:37 UTC
Even if the anonymous user is not allowed to edit the page, he should have the
right to view its source code (like in a protected page). (If the user is not
authorized to read, another error appears, so that doesn't matter.) I suggest to
view the source code, and by the way, to view "View Source" instead of "Edit"
when the user doesn't have the permission to edit it.
