Re: Please "attach" files to bugzilla, instead of pasting into amassive comment



Can bugzilla limit the line or character count? That way RedHat/Fedora developers can sit down, and come to a consensus as to what is "too much", and kick back an error when people try to post huge comments, stating that they need to include information over x number of lines as an attachment, or reduce the size of their comment? I say this, because we already have one developer that seems to want virtually any sort of output as an attachment, and another stating that he likes seeing strace output put into the comments. Another developer is going to write in a minute and say strace output is too long, but lspci output should be in the comment (as an example), and then the whole thing once again boils down to user/developer preference....

More and more over time, I am noticing a tendency of bug reporters
adding log files, config files and other large files to bug reports
by cutting and pasting these massive files into the comment box,
instead of attaching them as proper bugzilla file attachements.

On the other hand, I like inline stack traces as a bugzilla comment
search can find similar bugs pretty easy. If we had a "search
attachments" option (or does this happen already ?) that would be neat.

Or a better alternative stack-trace database submission/search system.
