There is currently far more work to be done on Bugzilla than we have
developers, and even if we did it all, we wouldn't have enough reviewers
to review it all.

Even just the things assigned to me personally I probably couldn't do
if I worked on them eight hours a day for the next 6 months.

So, I came up with a way to prioritize my personal work, and I thought
that others might be interested in it as a sort of a way of prioritizing
work on Bugzilla in general.

Basically, my priorities go like this:

1) Fix blockers for the next release.

2) Fix problems that would cause organizations to stop using Bugzilla.
3) Add features that, lacking, would cause current Bugzilla users to
switch to some other bug-tracker than Bugzilla.
4) Add features that would cause people to start using Bugzilla, or to
choose it over some other product.
5) Refactoring
6) Other major enhancements
7) Bug fixes and minor enhancements

Now, if anybody would like to suggest items that fall into categories
2, 3, or 4, I would love to move them to the top of my list.

In particular, if you know for a fact that certain issues caused your
organization (or an organization that you know of) to stop using
Bugzilla, please contact me directly by email and tell me. Even if your
organization has *discussed* moving away from Bugzilla due to specific
issues, I would really like to know.

Also, if there are features of other bug-trackers that caused your
organization (or another organization) to pick that bug-tracker over
Bugzilla, please let me know by direct email.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
