Re: Bugs

I do not see much of a reason for a Bugs page on this wiki, perhaps a note on the MDC (Mozilla Developer Center) page regarding this would be worthwhile. As well as a Bug in Bugzilla if one is not allready filed. I have marked that page as a "To Be Deleted" article, unless there is good reason to keep it around, I think it should go. --Justin Wood (Callek) 21:41, 29 May 2006 (PDT)

instead of delete it could reference to bugzilla. I did not post in bugzilla because I do not like to publish emailadresses. Something I really don't like about bugzilla. Tobias Conradi 06:30, 30 May 2006 (PDT)
Would you mind if I publish in Bugzilla (if not allready there), and then simply delete the page. If you like you can even e-mail me, and I'll create a forwarding address from my bugzilla account to you, so you have the (following) progress of the bug, without needing to expose your E-mail address. Key thing here is I'd still be deleting the page. --Justin Wood (Callek) 13:13, 30 May 2006 (PDT)
i am happy if you report it. Maybe post the direct bug-link here if such thing exists. Still, I would not delete the page. IMO it's good to give people the possibility to easily report. best regards Tobias Conradi 12:30, 31 May 2006 (PDT)
Hmm, on quick passing I cannot find the bug in bugzilla, though I am a bit tired right now, (and am not testing the latest trunk build) to warrent a real file with a clearly thought out summary. However on consult with another sysop (in-fact one employed by Mozilla, as a "Mozilla system admin") I have decided I will delete the Bugs page. What you are using it for is what has been designed for. --Justin Wood (Callek) 23:32, 31 May 2006 (PDT)
why delete, why don't make a redirect to a more apropriate place. And it has nothing to do with what "I use it for"! Feedback as well is not the right place. Why is this called a wiki if people like you and a by-mozilla-employed-sysop (are these people more worth than simple FF users?) delete contributions? Tobias Conradi 06:28, 1 June 2006 (PDT)
To better explain my reasoning, Bugs is being used for listing and reporting bugs. Bugzilla is for that, but feedback is to provide feedback without making public your e-mail address. Bugzilla is our archive of bugs, is our record of bugs, etc. If you look at how many bug reports are in Bugzilla you can get an idea of why a wiki page is a _bad_ idea for documenting any of them. If, however you want to document a bug in a web developer context, the Mozilla Developer Center will likely be the place to do so. Such that you can note on the Date.UTC page this bug (with a link to bugzilla perhaps when it gets filed). That is so that people wishing to actually use Date.UTC know of the situation. As far as "Delete" I was thinking of redirecting to one of the Bugzilla pages on this wiki, (if one exists), I have not yet taken the time to locate the type of page I imagine, nor do I expect to create one; if one does not exist I will simply delete. --Justin Wood (Callek) 11:17, 1 June 2006 (PDT)
