Description Helder 2012-05-05 13:57:04 UTC
Per
http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2012-May/060470.html
I think it would be useful to have some field to inform the wiki (project and/or language) to which configuration requests refers to.

Right now, the wiki is not informed in a consistent way. E.g: the users may inform the database name (enwiki, frwikibooks, etc...) or the language+projectname (Portuguese Wikipedia, Spanish Wiktionary) or specify that only in the bug description/comments. A real mess.

I don't know what to do in case of configuration changes which refer to more than one wiki though. E.g.: some change may affect all wikis in Portuguese, other change may affect the Wikibooks projects in all languages, and more complicated combinations are also possible.

For the record:

Recently it was created a tracking bug for Wikisource related requests:
* Bug 35925

There is also lists on some wikis:
* https://wikisource.org/wiki/Project:Wishlist
* https://pt.wikibooks.org/wiki/Project:Histórico_de_configurações?uselang=en
* https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project:Histórico_de_configurações?uselang=en

Reset assignee per bug 37789

mybugs.mail:
So this would be only needed for product == "Wikimedia" && component == "Site configuration" or "Extension setup" I guess?
Comment 4 Helder 2012-10-18 18:27:08 UTC
Yes, I think so.
Comment 5 Andre Klapper 2012-10-18 18:41:01 UTC
Asking as Custom Fields in Bugzilla have a "Field only appears when" option where exactly one option can be set (being able to add more option would be certainly good here). However https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=803203 doesn't make it easy to have this for more than one condition (e.g. triggered for two components).

Did someone broke the ids of the messages in the list again[1]?

I think I was referring to this thread:

Yes. All existing links to wikitech-l (from the very beginning of the archives) are broken.
