User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: As of now we set "Closed for bug entry" on a per product basis. As a result, till a product has new versions coming, the bugs can be reported in any of the older versions. Since each version of the product has its lifecycle, the versions soon become outdated and there is no use of bugs being reported in older versions. For example, a bug being reported in version 1.0 of mozilla is of no use. It is not going to be fixed, nor is it of any help if the bug does not exist in the newer version. It just wastes the precious time of the maintainer. Also, this creates problem of the cluttering of versions while submitting the bugs leading to submission of bug into a wrong version. I suggest the following feature: Allow the versions table to have a disallownew field like the products table. While creating a new bug, a user should be shown only the versions that do not have disallownew turned on. This would allow a more granular control over the bug submission. We can still have the disallownew field in products table which would work as it works now. I would like this feature to be in bugzilla. Though in my opinion, it does not require a big change, just adding a field in the versions table and some change in queries for getting version list for a product. If others feel this feature may be good to be included in the product, I can try hacking the bugzilla with my scarce knowledge of perl. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
This is a good idea, but it needs a solution to keep the query interface from getting badly cluttered as a huge number of ancient versions remain queryable.
