Re: Bug#321701: bug handling is a maintainers job
May I suggest a less controversial way to handle this would be to have a
script that automaticly closes *new* wishlist bugs and sends the submitter a
message like this:
The Debian maintainer of Firefox is not repsonsible for incorporating new
features into Firefox. It would also be an impossible task to forward all
wishlist requests upstream.
Accordingly, if you are seriously interested in seeing this feature
implemented, please discuss it on a Mozilla mailing list/newsgroup. If other
people support your idea then you should open a bug report on Mozilla's
bugzilla using the form at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi (you
will need to create an account first.)
If your bug was Debian specific then you should re-open it by sending the
following message to email@example.com:
[Insert generated message for re-opening bugs]
[Name of Script] on behalf of
Debian Firefox Maintainer
It explains the reason you cannot forward all bugs, and it helps to filter
wishlist requests that are not reasonable from being posted.
I assume wishlist because feature requests should always be wishlist. The
quoted message does not say anything about real bugs.
