https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describekeywords.cgi gives a count of how many bugs with each keyword there are. For verified18.104.22.168, for example, it says 80. However, when I click on it to see the bug list, I only see 72 bugs. I can only assume that means there are 8 hidden (probably security) bugs with that keyword. The same happens with a bunch of other keywords, most notably the verified1.8.0.* ones. It's probably a bad idea to let people know there are N non-public security bugs with a given keyword.
Switching to webtools security group, which should really have been picked by the security-group-picking code. Perhaps we have a bug in that too? Anyway, I can confirm that I see 80 bugs, of which 8 are secure. We have the following options: 1) Recalculate the totals on each page access (very expensive - many searches) 2) Give totals of public bugs only (bad on installations where every bug is in a group, because it would be 0 or some small misleading number) 3) Remove the totals entirely (loss of useful information, perhaps) 4) Decide that this isn't too bad of a leak Note that it only gives a number for total bugs rather than open bugs. This means that if, for example, you had a "security" keyword on all security bugs (which we don't), it couldn't tell you the number of open security bugs merely the number of total security bugs (including fixed ones). I don't see any keywords on b.m.o. which are specifically security-related, so we probably don't have a problem in our installation. Gerv
