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 Aaron Peterson 2004-09-06 12:36:26 UTC
I very much desire the ability to edit my feature requests.

I would like to see a wiki set up that parallels all of the bugs in the
database, that allows for easy navigation of the bugs.

I am not fond of bugzilla, because I make way too many duplicate posts and all
that,  If there were a wiki wrapper for bugzilla, I could theoretically find the
bugs easier.

I think I saw this being discussed on the mailing list, anyway, I'm getting
chewed out on meta for dropping too many feature requests in with the text,
and.. well another wiki, just for bugs, would be so awesome.. I'd just cry.

Basically, use templates? to embed bugzilla documents into a wiki... have
something like

{{bug:342}} and have it call that bug right up in the wiki page.

also, another idea is to have a wiki field, in addition to the description...
(it's.. basically a question of what is easier to embed in to, mediawiki into
bugzilla, or bugzilla into mediawiki)

We've tried managing bugs on a wiki page; it's always been a disaster which quickly ballooned into a giant, unmaintainable mess.

Much of the benefit of using a dedicated bug tracking system comes from the organization, the automatic notifications, the multifaceted 
categorization and search capabilities, and the dependency tracking.

A "wiki wrapper" doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. If you just want to link to a bug, go ahead like this: [[bugzilla:400]]

BTW - I've just released a MediaWiki extension that generates reports from Bugzilla, it's read only, but very useful for inlining reports into Wiki pages.  See for more info.

[[Wikia]] is already using such a feature for a while now!
