Bugzilla Search Defaults Changing

by GERVASE MARKHAM | This is a heads-up that a few of the default parameters on the Bugzilla query page are about to change. Some of the current defaults encourage clueless people to run searches which are very resource-intensive, and slow Bugzilla down for the rest of us. These changes will help to eliminate that.

The changes are: To summarise, the new default query will look like this: http://localhost/bugzilla/query.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&

Further in the future, we will be sorting the list of Products by importance (with Browser and MailNews at the top) and selecting Browser and MailNews by default (which triggers appropriate filtering on the Components, Versions and Target Milestone lists.) Again, this is to make the defaults Do The Right Thing better.

Remember, if you have a Bugzilla account and don't like the defaults, you can always create your own default query using the option at the bottom of the page.
