I have 99 bugs that i want to quickly become CC and change the OS to all.
I can't w/o touching each one manually.

re: remove, supposing i no longer want to watch a list of bugs, i should be 
able to make the list and ask bugzilla to remove me (as cc) from all of them.

in the also ran category:
mass add/removal to the status board
Bug# 12819 covers add/remove cc.

Status whiteboard is a little tricky since it's free format text.

For remove, do you just remove the first instance, or all?  Do you expect it at
the start, end, or anywhere?  Similarly, for add, do you put the text at the
start or end?

All of these should behave like keyword add/remove. fwiw w/ the new CC box when 
you add it's just added you don't control (I think it's added alphabetically). 
afaik noone should be listed multiple times in CC, if a status is [nsbeta2+]
[nsbeta2+] and you ask [nsbeta2+] be removed, only one instance should be 
removed (this should never happen, but in case it does, suppose you 
accidentally mass added [nsbeta2+] to 5 bugs that were already that way, you 
should be able to mass remove one copy of that. -- yes this is a bad example 
The status whiteboard isn't really designed for flags, that's what keywords is
for.  It's designed for sentences, like "Fix In Hand, Waiting For Reviewer". 
You can't easily fit that into a multi-value paradigm, since space separation
doesn't cut it.

As for no two ppl on CC, thanks for reminding me about bug #15966.

This sounds like a good thing but it would make it easier to spam lots of people
with bugzilla CC change spam.  Maybe this should wait until after the stop spam
bugs are fixed.
Like I said, CC is handled elsewhere.

Whiteboard: [metadata:os] mass_change
This should be an easy fix, and I have need of it right now. :)

We generally don't use OS/Platform in the Bugzilla product and thus they should
all be set for All/All except for specific cases.  I've identified 2 bugs that
the OS/Platform actually apply to (Win32 specific installation issues for
example), and that leaves 185 bugs that I need to clear the OS/Platform on.  I
can set the platform on change several, but not the OS.  This doesn't make sense :)
We are currently trying to wrap up Bugzilla 2.16.  We are now close enough to
release time that anything that wasn't already ranked at P1 isn't going to make
the cut.  Thus this is being retargetted at 2.18.  If you strongly disagree with
this retargetting, please comment, however, be aware that we only have about 2
weeks left to review and test anything at this point, and we intend to devote
this time to the remaining bugs that were designated as release blockers.

Severity: normal → enhancement
Summary: RFE: `Change several bugs at once` change OS. → `Change several bugs at once` change OS.
Enhancements which don't currently have patches on them which are targetted at
2.18 are being retargetted to 2.20 because we're about to freeze for 2.18. 
Consideration will be taken for moving items back to 2.18 on a case-by-case
basis (but is unlikely for enhancements)
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.18 → Bugzilla 2.20
Bugzilla 2.20 feature set is now frozen as of 15 Sept 2004.  Anything flagged
enhancement that hasn't already landed is being pushed out.  If this bug is
otherwise ready to land, we'll handle it on a case-by-case basis, please set the
blocking2.20 flag to '?' if you think it qualifies.
Target Milestone: Bugzilla 2.20 → Bugzilla 2.22

Created attachment 194214 [details] [diff] [review]
patch, v1

I also switched the component and hardware fields to make things more
consistent (product close to component and hardware close to OS).
