Description

12 years ago
Subject to justdave's approval, I'd like to create a new component in the Bugzilla product, called "Libraries".

Description: This component is for code changes that only affect libraries. If you aren't a Bugzilla developer, you probably never need to file bugs in this component.


We have a lot of bugs that have to do with Libraries, and I'd like to take them out of Bugzilla-General.

Also, we should say "libraries (.pm files)" in the Description, instead of just "libraries"

i presume:
assignedto:	libraries@bugzilla.bugs
qa:		default-qa@bugzilla.bugs

Does this component really make sense now that globals.pl has been removed? What kind of bugs would you imagine in this category? The only ones I can think of are about implementing object creation and methods.

Personally, I don't care too much as I never look at components anyway. ;)

Off-topic, I would prefer a "Distributed installations" component for all stuff related to communicating between several Bugzilla installations.

  Right.

  Yes. We still have possibly 50-100 bugs that would go into this component.

> What kind of bugs would you imagine in this category?

  Think about all the Bugzilla::Bug bugs that just have to do with mucking around with Bugzilla::Bug. Or, for example, my creation of Bugzilla::Object would have gone into that component. I didn't ask for this componet for a long time, because it didn't seem like it would be used frequently. But I see a bug, or file a bug, that I want to put in this component at least once a week or more.
Is this still wanted?
Reopen if you still want this.
