Too buggy how? Known bugs or something you never reported?

we're now on 4.2.7 (from 4.2.4)

So, stuff to check and prepare:
http://www.bugzilla.org/releases/4.4.1/release-notes.html#v44_upgrading

After upgrade, check whether we can set "smtp_ssl" to enable SSL connections to the SMTP server.

So to update the status here:

  • CSS cleanup Status: Done (bug 54823)
  • create custom patches for the 4.4 codebase. Status: Done (comment 5)
  • test patches on a local 4.4 instance Status: Done
  • test on labs (or zirconium in eqiad if production is still on kaulen in Tampa). Status:    Not done, will need help from ops (dzahn?)
  • deploy to production. Status:    Not done, will need help from ops (dzahn?)

Today, valhallasw expressed interest for https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=663747 on IRC. We also get that with 4.4.

*** Bug 58066 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

confirmed with 4.4, looks good. same diff there but based on 4.4 upstream file. deployed on 4.4 test host (like the other 10 dry patches)

Main reasons for 4.4:

  • Possible to save (but not share?) Tabular and Graphical Reports (used by several teams, e.g. Priority vs Severity for the components they maintain)
  • WebServices (JSON-RPC etc): http://www.bugzilla.org/releases/4.4/release-notes.html#v44_feat_webservices_details (used by Arthur's Bingle/Bugello)
  • "In reply to comment 12" quoting header adds name "by John Doe" (bug 53199)
  • Possible to search for "tickets I recently commented on" (bug 55636; "Allow Multiple Search Criteria to Match one Field")
  • Faster Search.
  • Support for GMail's threading (bug 49250)
  • Bugs are no longer reassigned to the default assignee when moving the bug into another product or component if the current assignee is not the default one.

Small correction:

  • Possible to save (but not share?) Tabular and Graphical Reports (used by several teams, e.g. Priority vs Severity for the components they maintain)

...after I fixed bug 59889.

Note to myself as we are targetting 4.4.1:
Changelog of 4.4.2 does not list anything that should affect us or would require rushing: http://bzr.mozilla.org/bugzilla/4.4/revision/8649

Test, now that we are back life on 4.4.

4.4.1 is in place now.
Bugzilla allows only one assignee for this report, but this ticket should also list Daniel Zahn and Sean Pringle as assignees. Thanks everybody!

Closing as FIXED.
