Exciting news from the fast-moving world of RH Bugzilla
a mere, fleeting year and a half after I filed the initial request, it
is finally the case that any registered Bugzilla user can now change the
Blocks: (and Depends On:) field of any Fedora bug! Thanks to Matt Tyson
for doing this at last.
What this means is you no longer need editbugs privileges to be able to
propose blocker bugs. This was never intended to be the case, it was
only an unfortunate consequence of the mechanism used for nominating
bugs as blockers. Now anyone with a BZ account can follow the
to nominate a
bug as a release blocker, or
to nominate one as
'NTH' (which means it does not block release, but freeze can be broken
to take a fix for the bug: it denotes bugs important enough to merit
To nominate a bug as a blocker for F18 final, for instance, mark it as
blocking the bug 'F18Blocker'.
Please use these powers wisely!
Sadly, I have now been informed that the change has only gone to staging
and won't be in production until January. Mark your calendars, folks.
