I currently are working on research of automatic duplicate bug detection from bug report database. May I obtain a bugzilla database dump of Mozilla from 2010-01-01 to 2010-12-31? The data will be purely used in academic research. Thank you very much. The signed "Agreement for Receipt and Use of Bugzilla Data" has been uploaded as attatchment.
Last couple of items we will need to know: = Contact information for yourself and your professor, mentor, or person overseeing your work. = How soon you will need the data. Also we will not be able to provide just the data from that time period, but a full sanitized copy of the database from BMO. You will need to write a script to pull out data from the date range you need. dkl
Hi Liu, I have good news: a sanitized MySQL dump of the Bugzilla database is available here: http://people.mozilla.com/~mhoye/bugzilla/ This is a MySQL dump of the contents of Bugzilla, as of January 2nd of this year. The above link goes to temporary hosting until a permanent solution can be put in place. Though the contents of this data set have been sanitized, with HR, legal and open security issues removed (~6.3% of the total), this dataset is otherwise Bugzilla's entire contents, minus attachments. I will update this bug with the relevant information once permanent hosting is found. Cheers!
Any thoughts on where we can host this data? Should we talk to someone in IT?
Plans are afoot! I'm working with aelliott to find a permanent home for it, and that is progressing apace. I have to get better about keeping that ticket updated, but it's moving along, should be done this quarter.
