According to http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Interwiki_links#bugzilla_links you can make a wiki support [[mozbug:315637]] to autogenerate bugzilla links.  This would be a nice feature for Mozilla's own wiki.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Try to enter a link to a bug in http://wiki.mozilla.org


Actual Results:  
You have to hardcode [https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315637 315637]

Expected Results:  
Tweak the wiki to support an InterWiki bugzilla link per the Meta-Wiki docs linked above.

I'm not sure if Wiki enhancements should be tracked in Wiki discussion pages ( http://wiki.mozilla.org/Help_talk:Editing ) or the bug base, I'm sorry if one or both of these are incorrect.
Sticking this here in lieu of a component for the wiki (which is coming as soon as the new Websites product is up and running)

We've actually just added a simple template for this on the MDC wiki.  You can see it here: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Template:bug

Usage is simply: {{bug|#}}, so this bug would be {{bug|322603}}

Works well and doesn't require any special wiki patching or anything.

Nifty, you can mark this FIXED.

I updated the "Editing help" page with this tip.  I notice that on wiki.mozilla.org the template creates a link to the http server (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322603) which then issues a "301 Moved Permanently" redirect to the httpS secure server.  But on  developer.wiki.org it creates a link direct to the https server.

I made the template http://wiki.mozilla.org/Template:Bug match http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Template:bug in going to https bugzilla server.

Marking fixed, though "dria" did all the work :)
