When a review request is created, it posts its URL as an attachment to the associated bug.  It would be good, if the review request is discarded, to obsolete the associated bug attachment, particularly since reopening the review request will result in another attachment (with the same content, though possibly a different reviewer) being added to the bug.

How to get started with the bug? I would like to contribute.

Hi!  You'll need to do two things first: get a working Bugzilla setup, and get Review Board with the rbbz extension installed.  For the first, you can install the developer vagrant box from the instructions at  For the second, check out and then install the extension from  The last link is where you'll actually be modifying code.

Ok I will start setting up the whole environment..
There are a lot of little tasks related to the Review Board tool, so after you've done this initial setup you'll be able to reuse it to fix other bugs, if you're interested. :)

Let me know if you have any problems.  Feel free to join in the #bteam or #bmo channels if you want live help!

It is becoming obvious that it's still a fair bit of work to set everything up.  I'm removing the [good first bug] tag until we have a nicely packaged docker/vagrant setup with everything in one place.
