There's an ongoing problem in bugzilla of fixed issues being reopened with related or supplemental issues.

Please stop doing this.

Open a *new* issue, and include a reference to the fixed one.

The idea is "One Issue => One Fix". Having many to one or one to many makes management of the issue list harder than it needs to be.

Remove the "reopen" option from the bugzilla webserver will be the easiest way to enforce this.

It's ok to reopen issues that were closed due to things like "wontfix".

But once there's a PR for it that's been accepted and fixes the issue as presented, it should not be reopened.

Even if it's a bad fix.

Just to add on Walter’s remarks: You should be able to reopen an issue that was closed on accident.

You can add all such rules to the web server.

Specifically, it looks like this is available under "workflow configuration":

https://bugzilla.readthedocs.io/en/latest/administering/workflow.html

Of course, with the planned migration to Github issues, all of this discussion is somewhat moot.

My last understanding was that this migration is not desired. If it really is, cool.
