Re: Bugzilla Changes

Xu, Jiajun <jiajun.xu@...>

We need to review the existing Bugzilla and update the Products and
Categories to reflect the projects correctly. Please review this
email and make comments, suggestions for moving forward with a better
Bugzilla categorization.

Currently we have "Core OS" with the following Components:
Graphics Driver
Tool Chain
Along with "Poky" which contains:
SDK Tools
There are also product categories for "Runtime Distribution", "Sato"
and "SDK Plugins". Along with other infrastructure items.

I would propose that we clearly define the some new products and move
bugs as appropriate:

Poky Build System - for Poky class and configuration issues User Space
- for user space, patching and runtime failures Tool Chain - break it
down to compiler, tools, libraries, and general Kernel - Break it down
to Arch / Config components SDK - For all SDK related issues, have
components for plugin, tools, ...
Sato - as it exists today
Runtime Distribution- Delete this, we are not a distro (no bugs now)

Additionally, there is other discussion about Poky Test components for
the standards tests such as LSB, LTP, Posix.
These test suites can help to find bugs from user level to kernel. It's hard to put them as components under just one product. User can decide the product and add note in bug title that the bug is for LSB or LTP.
If we want to make it easier to report bugs for such test suites, how about adding a Standard Test Suite product, which includes LSB, LTP, POSIX and Others as components.

We will need to add Product Categories for other Yocto Projects that
do not have bugzilla yet.

Finally we need to update the Bugzilla Interface to be Yocto Project,
changing naming as appropriate.

Please take a few minutes to review this and give some feedback.
