Bugzilla Etiquette Guide Now Available

Wednesday March 19th, 2003

Simon Paquet wrote in to tell us about the new Bugzilla etiquette guidelines, written by Gervase Markham. These guidelines explain a number of the most common Bugzilla faux pas and are intended to make Bugzilla a more pleasant environment for all. If you see anyone violating these rules, you should refer them to this document by way of a polite, private email. Persistent offenders should be reported to Gerv, who is well versed in the art of LARTing.

but as Gerv points out, that's not really a useful answer - module owners aren't necessarily the ones that make these decisions... they don't necessarily even read bugzilla mail.

this document is a nice thing to have, but it's not going to change much in practice unless there are some means of enforcing it, and that is difficult if it isn't clear who has authority, or if the person or people with authority aren't involved in the discussion...
