  1. Updates from Dylan
    1. CyberShadow is a big help getting Harmony in shape to be run by itself
    2. If you’re making a large change, make lots of small pull requests if possible (they can be on the same bug) as it makes it easier to review. That’s been working very well with CyberShadow’s changes.
    3. Bugzilla (Harmony) now working with Mojolicious which is a big deal (mostly for OAuth2 compatibility)
    4. “Rake me over the coals if there’s no 5.0.{next} release by the next meeting”
  2. Updates from Dave
    1. Still waiting on hosting info for our bots and email from Mozilla, hopefully soon
    2. History section on the website has been moved to the About page. It’s been updated with the help of Asa Dotzler correcting some inaccuracies and expanding it based on old Mozilla press releases and commit records. https://www.bugzilla.org/about/
  3. Next meeting is on Wednesday, May 2, at 9pm BST (UTC+1), 4pm EDT (UTC-4), 1pm PDT (UTC-7)

    • justdave
  • We now have a new set of roadmaps

    • http://www.bugzilla.org was switched over to GitHub Pages finally – this gets it out of Mozilla’s internal hosting infrastructure and into somewhere the Bugzilla project has some amount of control over.
    • We have a couple leads on hosting for the remaining Bugzilla project infrastructure – will hopefully have movement on this in the next month or so. (we have until August to get out of Mozilla’s old datacenter)
  • Any other business
    • none brought up.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 4, at 20:00 UTC (9pm BST / 4pm EDT / 1pm PDT)

Bugzilla 4.2 will be EOL on 2015/11/30

As discussed on the Bugzilla developers mailing list/newsgroup and confirmed by project leads, Bugzilla’s new release policy is to end-of-life the oldest supported major version four months after a new major release. Since this is the first time we’re enacting this policy, we’ve extended the date to be 4 months from today rather than from Bugzilla 5.0’s exact release date (July 7th).

Thus Bugzilla 4.2 will be end-of-lifed on 30 November 2015. This means no fixes of any kind will be issued for Bugzilla 4.2 from that date onwards. As usual, all Bugzilla admins are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version of Bugzilla as soon as possible, especially those running 4.2 or earlier.

To expand a bit further on our new EOL process, after a new major release, we will support three major releases (including the new one) for four months.  After four months, we will drop support for the oldest one.  We will continue to support the remaining two until four months after the next release.

For example, currently we support 4.2, 4.4, and 5.0.  In four months’ time we will drop support for 4.2 and support only 4.4 and 5.0.  When the next major version comes out, perhaps 5.2*, we will support 4.4, 5.0, and 5.2.  Four months later, we will drop support for 4.4 and support only 5.0 and 5.2.

Mark Côté
Assistant Project Lead, Bugzilla

* It may be 6.0 if there are major and/or breaking changes.
