Bugzilla triage plugin


Mageia bugscript, is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox (works maybe on other browser too). It adds buttons to the bugzilla which will help you to make some works faster. Like add some text automatically, add keywords, set the assigned, get the list of all commiters, open a tab of the svn log, set the status or make multiple thinks in only one time.

Support or enhancement request, bugs report about the script itself, should be filed on the dedicated bug, a, or send to the author (aka leuhmanu).

Test Bug:

see Stock responses for details


Use an external api to get the maintainer or committers (and replace the Mageia id, by something that bugzilla know) of the package in the rpm field. If there is maintainer the function will add it in the assigned field, and if not it will add the committers in the CC list.
see examples: mplayer (set to nobody) and rpm with a maintainer.
The server side api use the mageia database and some internal list to have something working for the bugzilla.


This function list the committers of the package, it will add the result in the CC field with the number of change for each people.


This function will open a new tab which go on the svn log of the package or the release of the bug. (example for firefox on mga1)
It can be useful to check quickly where changed the package in the last time.

There is a GUI for all these things in this website:
(in the script it search the info on the textarea box (rpm package, version, etc) so it's automatic)

Link-widgets Extension

This Firefox extension allow you to use 'alt + page up/down' do browse on search list (and also on ml archive or some other website)


Since the greasemonkey script do that, it's useless for triaging in the bugzilla. But it can help for others work.
