We're using bugzilla much more for communicating back and forth between localization teams and us or QA resources. Yet, filing bug on the localizations in our cvs is kind-of awkward, as a bug in a Firefox localization doesn't end up in Firefox, but in "Other Products". 'Client Support' isn't really appropriate anymore for Mozilla Localizations, as they turned into an integrated part of our development. What I would like to see is that - Mozilla Localizations shows up on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi right away, I'd suggest right after Firefox and Thunderbird. Do we need artwork for that? - on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?full=1, I'd like to see Mozilla Localizations in the 'Client Software' section, at a similar spot as above. I'm pondering to update the description, too. How does For bugs and requests specific to localized versions of Mozilla software (<a href="http://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Bugs">more info</a>) sound?
this isn't something marcia or i can fix
Created attachment 239357 [details] lets use the mozilla dino for "mozilla localizations." at least to get started...
I'd rank this listing third since localized versions make up such a high percent of all our downloads. Maybe change axel's wording a bit to say... For bugs and requests specific to localized versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, and all Mozilla software. As axel suggests Point Product Info link to: http://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Bugs Point bug filing link to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Mozilla%20Localizations
we can fix this. however i think this belongs in Components instead of client software. client software is already too big and Mozilla Localizations is not client software in my book.
I don't see any similarities of Localization of our products with Components. People are having problems with Firefox, in a different language. If we want those bugs to get filed properly, the localizations product should be as close as possible to the products as possible. Stripping down Client Software should be a different bug, and I see a bunch of other candidates to go elsewhere, like Grendel or Minimo.
The "pretty list" is not, as far as I know, connected to the Classification that the Product is in. So we could put Mozilla Localizations into the pretty list (third, as chofmann says) without changing its Classification. Axel: is adding Localizations to the pretty list sufficient, or do you want the full list changed as well? Gerv
I think we should do both.
Is this still wanted?
Ok, I moved "Mozilla Localizations" to the "Client Software" classification. I'll work on updating the pretty page soon.
This is staged and ready for the next Bugzilla upgrade.
This is now live on production.
