It's a milestone worth noting - Mozilla's installation of the bug tracking software Buzilla has reached bug number 1,000,000.

 

Dubbed the megabug, the report was dated April 23, 2014 and it invited the community to celebrate

 

 

Announcing the landmark on Mozilla Hacks, Gervase Markham, says:

So thanks to all those who have filed, triaged, processed or fixed bugs in our Bugzilla installation over the years, and to all those who have hacked on the software....Bugzilla has been an essential tool in making our software as great as it is, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Bugzilla's history stretches back to 1998. It was written by Terry Weissman for Mozilla.org which was just starting out and was released as open source software by Netscape Communications. The original version was in Tcl (Tool Command Language) but was ported to Perl before release.

Now at version 4.4.4 it is available under the Mozilla Public Licence and is used by many large projects and organizations including the Wikimedia Foundation, WebKit, NASA, Yahoo, Apache, and Red Hat as well as Mozilla which continues as its main developer.

Anyone can contribute to Bugzilla@Mozilla. You can open an account with a valid email address and given that Bugzilla is public a link is given to free email services that devs might prefer to use rather than ones that provide organisational information. You can start filing bugs and helping fix them as soon as your email is confirmed and you've set a password.
