I noticed this morning this from mozilla.org sanitycheck.cgi: Checking cached keywords Bug(s) found with incorrect keyword cache: 46700, 47682, 48303, 50670, 50810, 50875, 51067, 51316, 51574, 51748, 51768, 52134, 52141, 52451, 52457, 52527, 52528, 52530, 52558, 52654, 52887, 52971, 53085, 53087, 53482, 54327, 54328, 55091, 55502, 55667, 56114, 56218, 56379, 56568, 57676, 58951, 58954, 59122, 59480, 59613, 59928, 59964, 61830, 63764, 64139, 64151, 65076, 8388607 At least the first one, probably most of these were due to a keyword rename. It turns out editkeywords.cgi does not update the version cache of bugs when it renames a keyword. As far as I can tell, show_bug doesn't use the version cache, so it's not terrible, but I presume queries use it. I'm still looking at the last, illegal bug number.
Err, keywords cache, not version cache.
All of these bug numbers except for the last one are due to a rename of newmod to modern. The last one is not, and is covered at bug #69629.
It looks like it's similar if not the same. It's not suprising that if the keyword cache got out of date process_bug might try to fix it and give permission errors. IMO this is major problem since I think it can result in bugs not being on queries.
OK, neither the rename nor the delete code path update the keywords cache of affected bugs. This could probably be resolved best with code that applies to both, so one should probably be marked as dupe. I'd be more inclined to leave this here since I think it's more on the money. I am certainly disheartened to learn the seriousness of this was known as far back as December (bug #62893). Your report was the only Bugzilla bug report filed on it that I can see, but it didn't really explain the true seriousness of the problem.
There seems to be a consensus we should try to get this done for 2.12 due to its serious nature.
How long does it take to run sanitycheck.cgi on mozilla.org's installation? I recommend fixing this in two parts: 1) The stupid way. After editing or removing a keyword, notify the administrator that they have to run sanitycheck.cgi and rebuild the keyword cache. 2) Later on, the right way. Break out keyword cache rebuilding from sanitycheck.cgi and call that routine anytime an edit or delete operation is performed.
sanitycheck.cgi takes about 20 minutes on mozilla.org, and I don't know how much it loads the machine down. I'm not sure, are you're implying here that we should rebuild the keyword caches of all bugs, as opposed to just the ones with the keyword on it?
No, we should just be rebuilding the cache's on those bugs that are effected by a keyword remove or rename.
Okay, I have implemented the stupid fix, namely, that editing or deleting a keyword pops up extra html that reminds the user to rebuild the keyword cache using sanitycheck.cgi. I am checking this in, and then moving this bug to 2.16 for a more 'proper' fix.
moving to real milestones...

This happened again the other day when someone forgot to update the caches despite the message. I very strongly suggest that the fix to this should write changes on bugs_activity and send out notifications.

Oops... forgot to click "Reassign"
This is now on the "we really want this for 2.16, but won't hold the release for it if it's not done by then" list.
No patch yet, not a release blocker, 2.16 is now it freeze mode. -> 2.18
So is there a workaround for this? At the moment, I am unable to add a comment to Bug 68985. Is there a way to get sanitycheck.cgi run?
So why isn't this a release blocker? This makes affected bugs un-editable by us peons... Also, there doesn't seem to be any way to get someone to fix a bug that is exhibiting symptoms of this. For example, when I try to add myself to the CC list for Bug 68985, I get: Only the owner or submitter of the bug, or a sufficiently empowered user, may make that change to the keywords field. Old value: helpwanted, nsbranch, vtrunk New value: helpwanted, nsbranch I've been looking for somebody to help me fix that for a month, now.

I've 'fixed' bug 68985.
*** Bug 159948 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I don't think this should depend on a bug which was marked as a duplicate of this one, so removing dependency on bug#64760
Unloved bugs targetted for 2.18 but untouched since 9-15-2003 are being retargeted to 2.20 If you plan to act on one immediately, go ahead and pull it back to 2.18.
Can anyone see a reason the keyword cache exists at all? Why are we not killing it?
Joel the caches exist so they can be output on buglist.cgi.
This bug has not been touched by its owner in over six months, even though it is targeted to 2.20, for which the freeze is 10 days away. Unsetting the target milestone, on the assumption that nobody is actually working on it or has any plans to soon. If you are the owner, and you plan to work on the bug, please give it a real target milestone. If you are the owner, and you do *not* plan to work on it, please reassign it to firstname.lastname@example.org or a .bugs component owner. If you are *anybody*, and you get this comment, and *you* plan to work on the bug, please reassign it to yourself if you have the ability.
Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist. This doesn't mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it. If you are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.
We no longer accept new features for Bugzilla 3.6. Retargetting to 3.8.
It shouldn't be hard to do now that we have sql_group_concat().
