better facility to search for bugs

Feature state

openSUSE Infrastructure
Rejected Information


 openSUSE has really no bad bug support. However non-Suse users can never enfruit the benefits of openSUSE`s qa because there is no good way to search for bugs. This is even a problem for anyone who wants to check whether a problem is already reported before reporting it himself.

  I believe openSUSE could gain a lot of users by a better bug search. Bug reports do often contain solutions to common problems. If bugs are findable they will become linked and will thus be found more often by Google instead of the standard Ubuntu-threads talking around the hot pap.

Our bugs are not indexed by google due to the robots.txt of bugzilla.novell.com:
User-agent: *
Allow: /index.cgi
Disallow: /

This prevents indexing of show_bug.cgi. I don't know if this is intentional?

Open a bugreport against bugzilla and ask ;-)

That said: The bugreports are indirectly ;-) available to search engines via the archives of the opensuse-bugs mailinglist. That isn't a perfect solution, but at least better than nothing.

Since, I'm not regular to BugZilla I don't know whether this has been implemented or not. Can anyone verify this? Last post was 4 years ago.

Also, Stefan Walter (mehle) might have removed his account, so, removing him from Interested Users list so that the changes can be saved.
