Emoji and Bugzilla

Emma Humphries
As the BMO team announced earlier, we're going to be allowing emoji in user
inputs in Bugzilla.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1253535

We have not committed to a date to release this feature as it requires a
production database change which we haven't been able schedule yet.

Meanwhile, this change means that as an Bugzilla API consumer, you will
need to be ready to accept emoji in your systems.

In particular, if your client application uses MySQL, you'll need to update
your databases and tables to use utf8mb4 instead of utf8 encoding,
otherwise if you try writing strings containing emoji, they would be
truncated at the first emoji which would be a πŸ’© situation. Adjust that
caveat as needed for other data stores such as Postgres.

If your application will need time to be able to support emoji, please
contact the bmo team. Otherwise we'll assume you're 😎 with this change and
not 😱.

Also, once we turn this feature on, some of our users will think themselves
clever and create bugs with πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’© as the title. If the bug contains little
else than that, it's probably a πŸ—‘πŸ”₯ and can be closed as INVALID.

Yeah, we’re *so* going to start seeing bugs that are done entirely in emoji. I don’t look forward to decoding them, although I’m sure they’ll be incredibly clever and fun. :)
