Forgive me if (as a relative Bugzilla newbie) I have overlooked something that already exists, but it's not generally obvious to me whether statuses (such as "FIXED") apply only to the trunk, or to 1.0 as well, or what. In particular, if a bug is present in 1.0.1 but not in 1.1 (so has perhaps been fixed since 1.0 branched off), or vice versa, should it still be reported? Is there a mechanism for requesting that a fix be transferred from branch to trunk, or vice versa, or a mechanism for requesting that a fix NOT be so transferred? (I am aware that there is a mechanism whereby such transfers HAPPEN; I am asking specifically about feedback, from users such as myself.) Consider this an enhancement request if not.
If a bug has already been reported, it will be in Bugzilla. There are various keywords that track whether the bug is fixed on various branches and the trunk. If you have found a bug in 1.0.1 that isn't present in 1.1, it may be because a fix was applied to the trunk but hasn't been transferred to the branch. This may be trivial to do, or it may not. You should be able to tell by looking in the bug's comments whether it will be going into the stable 1.0 branch (generally, only correctness and stability bugs will go into the 1.0 branch). If you can't find an existing bug report and the bug exists only on the 1.0 branch, report it by all means, but make it clear that it's for the 1.0 branch only. This kind of question should be asked in the newsgroups, not a bug report. -> INVALID
