INTRO: Tosh

Tosh, Michael J
INTRO: Tosh

I've been participating for a while now, but I don't think I ever introduced myself.

I'm Michael Tosh (I usually sign emails as and respond to 'tosh', although on occasion I may use 'oreomike' as my user/nick as a leftover from decades old account names.  It was a homage to the cookie, not the informally-referenced ethnic group.)

I work as a software developer for Lockheed Martin in New Jersey onsite at the FAA Technical Center.  (The next time you fly overseas, know that I helped write/test/implement the Air Traffic Control system used to keep your plane away from other planes, and Bugzilla is used to track any problems with that system.)  I'm versed in many networking technologies and scripting languages, and recently have become a Perl advocate for mini projects around our lab.

I had created a highly-customized version of bugzilla based on 2.22.  During that time I had learned much of the bugzilla flow and code, and now that we have migrated to 3.0, I have found most of the customizations were included and those that weren't I've been working to have included in newer Bugzilla versions.  (Allow range searches of bug numbers, single-select custom fields for selecting custom user roles, default CSV output to use customized field names, cleaning up editmultiple for people with per-product editbugs.)

I enjoy helping others work through problems by responding on the support list.  It is a good distraction from the monotonies of my real job.  I'd love to participate more, but my level of participation is limited by the workload of my regular job, so sometimes I can do a lot, and sometimes not so much.  I also cannot access any IRC discussions from where I'm at, unless I am working from home and have a second computer laying around to use, so I can only be reached via email.

Cool :-) Just if I fly near New Jersey, or does this apply more widely?

Welcome, Michael.  

Good thing we made the "Midair Collision" message customizable.

Certainly.  That was the #1 change we had to make in 2.20 when we
started!

Only if you fly overseas.  i.e., North Atlantic, North Pacific, or over
Alaska.

Worthwhile? bug dependency list?

Roscio, Steve
In reply to this post by Tosh, Michael J
INTRO: Tosh Howdy Devos -

I've hacked Bugzilla (buglist.cgi) to create a "dependency list", similar to a dependency tree or graph, but that produces a nested buglist with clickable +/- icons.  Would you consider this a worthwhile enhancement to Bugzilla?  I did this for my day job, it's something we needed here at HP.

I attached three screenshots to bug#371030 ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=371030 )
so you can get an idea of what I mean.

I think it is pretty cool. Although taking a hack to good code is a pain, but if you're up for it. I'd like to see that as an option.

I fully agree, that would be a nice and useful enhancement.
