[openFATE 311128] Replace bugzilla screening team with a Perl script
Feature changed by: Michal Marek (michal-m)
Feature #311128, revision 2
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.
