Bugzilla “Limitations” 0: Introduction

I’m planning to write an occasional series of postings on “limitations” of Bugzilla which are actually features. As Joel has suggested (more than once; see three paragraphs from the bottom), sometimes you purposefully avoid adding a feature to a product in order to make it more usable.

This has been generally inspired by frequently asked questions in netscape.public.mozilla.webtools, and specifically by Jouni Heikniemi’s recent post. He talked about bug numbers being unique across an installation, which will be the topic I’ll address first, but I have at least four more ideas in the pipeline.

Look out for the first in the series tomorrow.
