Thanks for the report, fixed upstream now. Since this is minor I'm just closing the bug, it'll be fixed with the next release and rebase

Similar problem has been detected:

Installed `python-bugzilla` packages as advised in
to report bugs from command line, and it crashed.

Comment 11 Anatoli Babenia 2018-04-06 06:43:09 UTC
It is not fixed yet for Fedora 27. What to do?

Comment 12 Cole Robinson 2018-04-06 14:31:31 UTC
It's just an error reporting issue. Your command line is invalid, you need to specify a complete command

Comment 13 Anatoli Babenia 2018-04-06 15:05:11 UTC
Shouldn't `bugzilla` command at least provide a little human readable help if it command line is invalid? I would expect from officially recommended command line tool to at least have command line help.

Comment 14 Cole Robinson 2018-04-06 15:11:04 UTC
Yes, that's the bug. But you can do the standard bugzilla --help to get that info as well

Comment 15 Anatoli Babenia 2018-04-09 15:24:43 UTC
Reported upstream -

So, should this issue hang open until fixed upstream?

Comment 16 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:16:33 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 17 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-29 11:58:13 UTC
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
