"Searchable as comment" flag for attachments would be useful. I'd like to have an attachment flag that makes the attachment searchable as if the contents were a comment. And UI to turn that flag on/off. This is primarily to encourage stack traces being added as attachments rather than comments (which makes bugs less readable and causes mail spam).
ARG. THIS DOES NOT HELP ME AT ALL. IT JUST ENCOURAGES BAD BEHAVIOR. Unless you arrange for bugzilla to *send* the attachment to me so that gmail indexes this, i don't want it. please stop encouraging people to defeat my gmail archive.
Dupe of bug 346059 IMO.
note that i didn't intentionally clobber the dependency, bugzilla didn't tell me that was happening.

(In reply to comment #2) If bug 346059 intends to make stack trace attachments searchable as if they were comments that would be good enough for bug 361874. It's not clear to me if that's the intention though. This request was for a generic flag that could be turned on/off for any attachment, although stack traces was what I had in mind of course.
(In reply to comment #5) > although stack traces was what I had in mind of course. Bug 346059 would perhaps be a better solution.
All attachments of the form text/plain can be considered as searchable as comment. There is no need for an additional flag. Most users wouldn't understand its purpose.
