Description Max Kanat-Alexander 2003-06-20 04:42:05 PDT
The CSS spec with the Mozilla Bug Annotations is great. However, most of the
bugs listed are now resolved as fixed, worksforme, or invalid. This means that 
Mozilla looks like it has more bugs than it does, and it makes the document more
confusing use as a reference.

There are three possible ways to resolve this bug:

1) Strip all resolved bugs out of the document. This is a bad idea, because web
developers may want to know that some older version of Mozilla (such as 1.0) had
certain bugs. Also, some bugs that have been marked resolved may not have had a
release since they were resolved.

2) Have multiple versions of the document for each Mozilla release, that says
what the CSS bugs were for that release. This, however, does not catch bugs that
appeared *after* that release.

3) Have the document generated dynamically, and take a date. The document would
only show the bugs that were still open after that date. This is similar to #2,
but possibly more complex. However, it would be the best possible solution, if
it would be possible.

If we go with #3, then this should probably be changed to a severity of
enhancement. Right now I'd say it's normal, since it makes the Annotated CSS1
document not very useful.

Comment 3 Josh Heidenreich 2003-11-24 01:27:56 PST
Would you have it so that thw web developer would punch in a date and it would
look up the bug database and then mix that with the css spec? If so you would
probably need some cgi (perl) and you would need to know how the bugzilla
database(s) work. (and have read-access to them)
Comment 5 Gérard Talbot 2006-11-09 00:15:57 PST
the power of Bugzilla:

product=Browser is no longer supported

Fix for that is:

Note that there are CSS1-related bugzilla bug reports (approx. 10) which do not have the css1 keyword and which should have the css1 keyword.

Some bugfiles have the css1 keyword but are not listed in the document. Not mentioned in the document (for various or unknown reasons) are: bug 8914, bug 14984, bug 21193, bug 22053, bug 25680, bug 30782, bug 35666, bug 35735, bug 45838, bug 46217, bug 54979, bug 55929, bug 56362, bug 58048

Finally, the bugspecs/REC-CSS1.html webpage has right now some 120 validation markup errors... which is embarassing.

Marking blocking bug 151557
