bugzilla cannot be easily port to non-mysql databases such as postgress or oracle. while things like bitint and tinytext are trivial to port; enum, timestamp, and datetime may not be easy. is there anyway to start moving the perl and sql parts towards sql92?
Submit some patches? I freely admit I am not much of an SQL expert. I've figured out how to use MySQL, that's all. If you submit some patches that change the use to be more standards-like, that would be great. Meanwhile, though, I am not really very upset at the idea of requiring MySQL.
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
Clearing "M" field since Webtools product is not used for 5.0 specific project bug metrics and will mess up our queries on milestones.
some things need to be done to initally start any porting process. the first is to implement bug/enhancement #1103, use DBI instead of mysql.pm. this has other advantages in that mysql.pm is deprecated in favor of DBI. the next inital step is to break apart the make*.sh scripts. ideally, each script would have the creation routines and the mozilla specific values separated out. a sub-directory structure would be handy too. if i may suggest: bugzilla-root/ database/ mozilla-specific/ fillcomponenttable.sh etc.... test-database/ fillcomponenttable.sh etc.... mysql/ makecomponenttable.sh etc.... oracle/ ......
Reassigning to firstname.lastname@example.org, who now has front-line responsibility for all Bonsai and Bugzilla bugs.
Reassigning back to me. That stuff about me no longer being the front-line person responsible for Bugzilla and Bonsai turned out to be short-lived. Please pardon our confusion, and I'm very sorry about the spam.
email@example.com is the new owner of Bugzilla and Bonsai. (For details, see my posting in netscape.public.mozilla.webtools, news://news.mozilla.org/38F5D90D.F40E8C1A%40geocast.com .)

Moving to real milestones...
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 3.0
Taking all Bugzilla 3.0 bugs -- congratulations to MattyT for the triage, it really was spot on. Note: I may end up pushing some of these bugs back to 3.2, we'll see. However, I believe all these bugs should just fall out of the redesign. Let's hope I'm right! (Note: I'm also resetting the priority field to "---" so that I can retriage any that I consider important or likely to be dropped.)

The Bugzilla 3 component is going away. We're going to depend on the Milestones for this. At the time this component was created, we didn't have milestones for Bugzilla.
Component: Bugzilla 3 → Bugzilla
Severity: normal → enhancement

Product: Webtools → Bugzilla

The newer PostgreSQL bug is doing most of this. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 98304 ***
