BMO is running a customised version of Bugzilla, currently (3rd July 2014) sitting on top of Bugzilla version 4.2, but with many features and fixes backported from the master, 5.0, and 4.4 branches.

All source is maintained in git and is mirrored (read-only) to GitHub. New development is done in the master branch, which is regularly synced to our staging server,, and, generally on a weekly basis, pushed out to production. The development branch is synced to our development server,, generally when we are experimenting with new features.

We use Apache's web server, and MySQL's database.

Setting up a development environment

You can setup your environment using a Vagrant VM which is described in this README or setup Bugzilla manually using the instructions below.
