[opensuse-project] [ANNOUNCE] Bugzilla 4.4.5 Update this weekend

Hi openSUSE folks,

we're going to update the openSUSE bugzilla from ancient version 3.4.3 to
version 4.4.5. We do this mainly for three reasons:

- to get new features and better speed
- to get better customization support
- to get all security holes fixed

The update will happen on September 20th, aka this weekend. From a user
experience, Bugzilla version 4.4.5 is not very different to 3.4.3, but
there are some incompatible changes to watch out for:

* NEEDINFO is no longer a state, but a flag. This has the advantage
that a bug can have multiple needinfos set.
The UI still offers the needinfo checkboxes, so you should not notice
this much.

* Some states got updated to sync with upstream bugzilla:

ASSIGNED has been split into CONFIRMED and IN_PROGRESS. CONFIRMED
means that you acknowlede that there is a bug, IN_PROGRESS means
that you work on the bug.

CLOSED has been merged into VERIFIED.

The standard bug life cycle is thus:

NEW -> CONFIRMED -> IN_PROGRESS -> RESOLVED -> VERIFIED

* Partner IDs are stored as "See Also" URLs. There are shortcuts
to add them, e.g. "FATE-2222" maps to the id in fate. There's
also "CVE-XXXX" to map to the mitre server for the security
inclined.

With the update come per-business unit bugzilla styles and product
filtering, thus navigating to "bugzilla.opensuse.org" will get you
to openSUSE's bugzilla instance in a friendly green look instead
of the old wiki page.

Note that this is just a different skin for the same novell.com
bugzilla, you can even configure it in the bugzilla preferences
section. (In case you're wondering, there's also bugzilla.suse.com,
bugzilla.netiq.com, and bugzilla.novell.com.)

Cheers,
Michael.
