Great idea.

Have you checked why bugzilla3 used to be in Debian, and got removed (see #638705).

I guess you'd better have to convince people that things will be improved with the new version, for the success of this ITP ;-)

Hope this helps.

Thanks for  the info.  I was not aware of that.  I did wonder why it wasn't being packaged.

It looks like the main thing to  be addressed is finding a co-maintainer.

As discussed in private with Mark (he's a coworker), I will serve as his
comaintainer & sponsor for this package.

Moreover, I'm adding the security team to the loop, since bugzilla3 was
removed per their request.

We know that bugzilla has had a troubled history in Debian, so we'll be
careful. One area in particular that was problematic was a strained
relationship with upstream (aiui, the result of having an unmaintained
vulnerable package in Debian for some time); Mark has already been in
some contact with them.

If you still have reservations, feel free to raise them — before we
upload this (soonish) would work better :) 

Thanks,
Faidon

As the person, who requested the removal of the old package: I have no 
objections against Bugzilla per se. The upstream security engineering
is done in a very professional manner.

The old package was removed because
- the old package was practically unmaintained (only activity every year or so). If
  there's now a full maintainer team, all the better.
- the old packaging was horrible (multiple tarballs mixed in a weird way and
  instead of patches everything was modified by a series of shell scripts
  run during build) and close to impossible to NMU in a sane way. If you
  start bugzilla4 packaging from scratch that should not be a problem.

Cheers,
        Moritz

Hi Mark,

I was curious if an upload was coming anytime soon?

Thanks,
-Jeremy

I do have an initial pass at packaging this.  It simply handles
installation -- not upgrading.  I haven't touched it in a couple  of
weeks, but was planning to get back to work on it in the next few days.

I would love to get some testers for the package.  Are you volunteering?
