We’ve got a new keyword set up for Bugzilla — dev-doc-needed — that can be applied to bugs that require developer documentation changes.
For example, let’s say there’s a bug “add a method foobar() to the nsIFunkyTown interface”. Adding the dev-doc-needed keyword will let the documentation team know that when that bug gets fixed, a documentation change will be required.
We writer-type folks can then watch a list of bugs with that keyword and easily know when stuff happens that we need to pay attention to.
This could be a huge help in avoiding “what, you needed that documented?” problems that come up at the last minute. So I’d like to urge everyone that uses Bugzilla to make use of this keyword so we can continue to make progress toward getting our documentation whipped into shape.
