The new reports features in Bugzilla are really great. It does seem a bit slower than the old reports, but it is nice to be able to generate reports on arbitrary sets of bugs.
Heh kind of funny the suggestions they give for the new features:
- please add conditions so you are only reporting on bugs you care about
- please don't generate reports just for fun
- please don't generate reports regularly using a cron job
- please don't link to report .PNGs from a web page, but save the images and mirror them instead.
In my experience, asking people not to do something is their best motivation to do it.
Also, given that BugZilla is/can be user-aware, I think it could limit users to lower-priority levels if they are doing lots of intensive/complex report queries. Well, maybe that'll be in the next rev...maybe it does that already.
