Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Announcing Apache ooo Bugzilla on Lists

Ah, deep linking into the Bugzilla.

Now I understand.  Yes, that is important.

But the issues have not moved.  They should still be there on the read-only

What can't be done is further commenting and seeing any changes since the move.

To stay tied to the live one, the redirection has to be done on the site. 

Also, people may be frustrated to learn that they still can't comment or make new issues because
they have to reactivate their registration, if any.

PLEASE: Is there someone HERE who can change the message on the Bugzilla to
something like "This instance of Bugzilla is now Read-Only!!  The current Bugzilla is now
at the Apache OOo Project,

ALSO: I think we need to refine the notice that now shows up on every view into
so that arrivals by deep linking know where they are (I.e., at the Apache OOo Bugzilla, not
the "live" one.  They are not necessarily going to know why that is important :).  Also, a
password is not required simply to access the Bugzilla, it is required to submit and modify

THEN We need to consider how to redirect.  If we redirect,
there is other information that will be lost (such as what is now on that front page and all
of the information on other pages that leads to that and other pages).

QUESTION: Is there anyone HERE who knows how to do that successfully THERE without breaking
something else?  Ideally, it would look like the Apache Bugzilla is now simply sitting in
place of the original one.  But we need to be able to revert if we mess it
up.  And we will need to do considerable housekeeping to keep visitors from being confused
or giving up on what appears to be a mess.

I assume that updating Forum pages is easy.  I am concerned about the web pages of the site
that are all about Bugzilla.

Ditto for French forum :-)

But as I said before. We have many posts with links tagged Issue that point to the old qa.oo.o
So an automatic redirection will be nice.
