Version: (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from: Fedora RPMs
The bugzilla seems to support tags:
> Enable tags for bugs - turn bug tagging on or off.
Today we were talking about KDE4 regressions and possibility to make a list of all such reports in bugs.kde.org that are regressions against KDE3.
Someone suggested to use userspace to such, but that would be manually maintained references to the bugs.kde.org and go out of date quickly. We could also use such hours to clean the bugzilla itself.
If we could add such metadata into bugzilla itself, it would make whole lot easier to provide such listings just by SQL queries.
So we need an ability to add metadata tags into each entry and bugzilla seems to have that feature already. Please, consider switching it on.
Like the existing "keywords" field?
Yes, exactly and it includes the 'regression' word, but regular logged in users cannot use it. My UI doesn't have that text input field. We have lot of tickets here that would need attention but people don't have rights to handle them.
bugzilla 3.2 doesn't have this and i'm not running bugzilla CVS HEAD on a production system.
ahh, but it's there in 3.2 as well.
I was told that keywords are used as part of release process so opening them up to everyone is out of the question. List of them:
Why not use milestones and bug dependencies from bz standard features list as that's what those are designed for?
For me as regular reporter, it's frustrating that lot of features are removed and when reports get outdated or have wrong version information etc - people don't have rights to put that information in there.
IMO it's clear that current rights management policy does not guarantee enough manpower to handle current report flow and we gradually build up a pile of invalid/outdated information which is no good for anyone.
KDE should open more bugzilla rights for logged in users. Content management works in wikipedia and don't see much difference in our user community with that.
List has 10 items, i guess it proves my point that there aren't enough eyes with rights to edit those keywords.
Such listings could also be linked into main page imo.
Any solution for this? Could we either open the keywords or enable tags?
i'm not opening the keywords and i'm still investigating how tags work. have some patience please.
Even if I enable tags for bugs in bugzilla, the tags set are only visible to the current user, and while useful, won't do what you want, so this is still a WONTFIX.

Could you elabroate this:
- what the 'current user' stands for? One that has an account and has logged in?
- if that current user is logged in user, that's exactly what's needed.
I do log in and still cannot mark the regression anyhere else than into comments which is no good at all.
the current user is the one that's currently logged in, yes. However, since these tags only apply for the current user, what use are they really other than for your own use?
Are you sure that they only apply to the current user and are not visible to the others? That would be the first time I see such implementation in any web based system that has a tag concept available.
I don't care is that tag, keyword or something else implemented on site. We need some tool for this and there is none.
Uh, keywords are already available. At least I get a "Keywords" field in that gray box. (But I've got developer access, so maybe the field is hidden to regular users.)
Kevin, for your info (which also reads in comments), that's where all this started and that's what this ticket is all about.
yes, i'm sure. i tested it myself. Bugzilla isn't very web 2.0
