Down the road, we may set up a group of tinderbox machines dedicated to testing
patches for errors before developers check into the tree. There is a version of
this available for Necko performance testing at the above URL, which accepts a
bug attachement number as a method of applying a patch. Building on top of myk's
attachment management tools, after submitting a patch to a bug, a devleoper
could test for compilations errors with a single click.

I know this isn't exactly build config, but it seemed like the best fit for now.

this isn't testing suite, testing suite is for the actual automated test system in bugzilla, not 
the concept of testing from bugzilla. ->attachments

I am working on a proof of concept demo for this for bugzilla, where an authorized user 
can enter an attachment number along with a user/pass combo and get the results of 
applying the patch to a tree and running the automated test suite on it. I'll post it on this 
bug when it's done.
Wow this is old.  Bug #148047 is kind of related.

[RFE] is deprecated in favor of severity: enhancement.  They have the same meaning.
Severity: normal → enhancement

If someone wants this, he is free to use hooks available in Bugzilla 3.6. But we won't implement it upstream.
