Automating closing bugs on end-of-life versions of glusterfs


closing a lot of bugs in bugzilla through the (Red Hat) bugzilla web site is a royal pain in the a**.


1) get the bugzilla CLI utility:
  `dnf install -y python-bugzilla`
(or `yum install python-bugzilla`)

2) sign in to bugzilla using your bugzilla account and password:
  `bugzilla login`

3) get a list of bugs to close:
  `bugzilla query --from-url=''`
  bugzilla query --from-url='' | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | sed -e s/#//`
4) and close them:
  `bugzilla modify <bug> [<bug> ...] --close=EOL --comment="GlusterFS 3.4.x has reached end-of-life.\
If this bug still exists in a later release please reopen this and change the version or open a new bug."`

Additional scripting is left as an exercise to the reader.

    Progress cannot be made without change. As technologists, we recognize this every day. Most of the time, these changes are iterative: progresssive additions of features to projects like Gluster. Sometimes those changes are small, and sometimes not. And that’s, of course, just talking about our project. But one of the...
