[New: openFATE 311128] Replace bugzilla screening team with a Perl script
Feature added by: Michal Marek (michal-m)

Feature #311128, revision 1
Title: Replace bugzilla screening team with a Perl script

Hackweek VI: New
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Michal Marek (michal-m)
Developer: (Novell)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Over the years, the task of the bugzilla screening team has reduced to scanning
incomming reports for words that look like package names and reassigning the
bugs to the maintainers of these packages. One exception is asking for y2logs
if the bug is yast-related and there are no y2logs. A Perl script could do this
as well, and it could even be improved over time, which is not possible right
now, because bug screening is assigned to someone else each time and anything
that the previous screener has learnt is lost. The script probably wouldn't
know the answer in all cases, so we would still need a human operator to take
care of the unclear cases, but this person would be much less loaded and thus
have more time to do their job well.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Better quality of bugzilla screening.
