Brendan is on the defensive

My son Brendan started his first self-defense class tonight, where he’ll be learning both Karate and Tae Kwon Do (both are part of the program). Given his very enthusiastic passion for Power Rangers, we figured he would probably enjoy it, and he indeed has. Hopefully it’ll also teach him that there’s more to being a "Power Ranger" than what he sees on TV. :)

New bugzilla.org website!

As mentioned the other day, in my previous post, the mozilla.org website got redone again the other day, just a few weeks after we updated bugzilla.org to match their previous look and feel.

Well Mike Morgan has done it again, and updated bugzilla.org to match.

\"Find Similar Bugs\" bookmarklet

I cooked up this bookmarklet earlier tonight, figured I’d post it somewhere before it gets lost. :) This bookmarklet will run a “Find a specific bug” search in Bugzilla using the product and summary of the bug you’re currently viewing. It currently only works on mozilla.org. Someone who knows more about Javascript than I can probably fix it up to be site-agnostic :)

Find Similar Bugs

Don’t click it, it won’t work here. :) Right-click it and choose “Bookmark This Link”, and put it somewhere convenient. (Or just drag the link into your toolbar.) Then when you’re viewing a bug and want to find one similar to it (searching for dupes?) you can click it and off it goes.

UPDATE: My blog apparently doesn’t allow javascript: URLs… you’ll have to manually edit the saved bookmark and add “javascript:” in front of the location before it will work.

Per-product bug numbering

I was just reading some of the messages on the mozilla-webtools mailing list that I missed while traveling, and found a reference to a real gem of a blog post from last week by Jouni Heikniemi on Bugzilla and bug numbering per product. If you haven’t already seen it, it’s well worth the read. We should put this in the Bugzilla FAQ :)

new bugzilla.org website, again?

www.bugzilla.org just recently got a makeover to get it in line with the rest of the mozilla.org website. No sooner than we got it up (well, 5 or 6 weeks isn’t that long in the grand scheme of things) than they go and redesign mozilla.org again. :)

Mike Morgan and I discussed it briefly last night, and Zach Lipton also suggested it in his blog that bugzilla.org might need yet another makeover to get it back in sync with mozilla.org again. Fortunately, since our last redesign also made extensive use of Template Toolkit to make the site easily editable, we can realistically make this happen by changing about 3 files. The question then is, “should we?”

I kind of like the new design personally, and I’m leaning heavily towards saying it needs to be done. But we’d need to come up with a way to keep bugzilla.org distinct. It needs to be obvious that we’re part of mozilla.org, but also obvious that it’s a separate website, if you know what I mean.

Getting back into the swing of things

Well, I’m back from my trip to the UK as of a few days ago, and finally getting settled in well enough to sit down and write something.

I got to meet Gervase Markham while I was there, and we chatted a bit while doing my laundry from the previous week in a laundrette. heh. The Italian ice cream place we went to afterwards was pretty incredible though.

I’m hoping to be able to get both Bugzilla 2.19.1 and 2.18rc3 out this coming weekend (if not sooner). We freeze for 2.20 in less than 2 weeks, so it’s looking quite possible that we might just have a 2.20rc1 before we have 2.18 final. That would be quite interesting indeed.
