Section: "Required information"

Talk status
This discussion is done.
  • I do not see anything mentioning "Build Identifier" when reporting a bug or simply viewing one. Is this feature no longer present?
  • The part regarding URL's, could we perhaps mention that if the file is too big you could compress it using bzip filename, and upload it. Also when first submitting the bug report one can only attach 1 file. Once submitted the one can upload one-by-one several files. I believe these two pieces of information (file>1000kb; more than 1 file) could be useful as those circumstances led me to upload files to a pastebin site when I should've known better.

Reassigning bugs info out of date?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

In the first note in the "Working with a bug section" section it says

You have to be the reporter of the bug or a member of certain Gentoo Bugzilla groups (like Gentoo Developers) to be able to reassign bugs.

A little further down it says

To do this, click the bubble next to Reassign bug to, then fill in the email.

Is this out of date? Because I have not been able to manually assign any of the bugs I've reported. xxc3nsoredxx (talk) 06:38, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

From my understanding, that bug seems to track users with broader editbugs perms. It doesn't answer the question about whether the blurb regarding the bug reporter themselves being able to assign that specific bug to someone is out of date. xxc3nsoredxx (talk) 20:30, 15 January 2022 (UTC)
