Github and Bugzilla Integration
I was wondering... Github provides service hooks for integration 
with Bugzilla. Based on the commit messages, my first guess would 
be that it's not used. Using integration would lower the amount 
effort needed to close and manage a bug on Bugzilla.

It's on my todo list to play with that integration, just hasn't risen to the top.  I need to upgrade the bugzilla
installation we use first (for that and other reasons).

That sounds like something of instant utility. Thanks for looking into it.

According to the Github website:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
This service hook posts comments on Bugzilla bugs when commit 
messages
reference a bug by id number.

Bugs are recognised by the following formats, which are 
case-insensitive:
- Ticket 123
- Bug 123
- Tracker item 123

Multiple bugs can also be specified by separating them with a 
comma,
apersand, plus or "and":
- Bug 123, 124 and 125

If the "Integration Branch" option is filled in, only commits to 
that branch
will result in bugs being modified. This is useful for disabling 
premature bug
closing/comments when working on feature branches.

If "Integration Branch" is not set, commits to all branches will 
be
processed. If you only want to update Bugzilla when you push to 
your "main"
branch: you probably want to set this to "master".

If the central repository option is enabled and there is a "fix",
"close", or "address" before the bug then that bug is closed.

If a commit has already been mentioned in the bug comments when 
pushed
by another user then a comment isn't made, unless the central 
repository
option is enabled. In this case only the first line of the commit 
message
is included in the bug comment.

This hook requires Bugzilla version >= 3.4 to function correctly
and >= 4.0 to be able to close bugs.
