have you tried if the webkit-patch bugzilla tool (upload,
apply-attachment, apply-from-bug, ... ), the review tool,
the commit queue and EWS will work properly with the new
bugzilla version?

I think they are very fragile and highly rely on the generated
HTML forms. I prefer fixing these tools before updating to
breaking them and then trying to fix.

Just out of curiosity, if we do an upgrade, why do we upgrade
to the old stable release (4.2.11), why not the latest stable
relase (4.4.6)? Is there a fundamental reason for it?

There are many good fixes in 4.4 release. If we can't upgrade
to 4.4 for some reason, it would be great to cherry-pick at
least the following changes:

"It is now possible to add yourself to the CC list when uploading an 
attachment and when editing an existing one." (note)
--> auto cc reviewer - https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124047 )

"Changes to the CC list no longer causes midair collisions." (note)
--> It is very annoying if you are commenting a bug, and you
have to start it again if somebody else cc-ed him/herself.
Or if you clicked force, it would remove these new cc-s.

And one more question: Are you planning to check-in
the new bugzilla to Websites/bugs.webkit.org ?
