The actual topic is upgrading, let's discuss about bugzilla too.

bugs.webkit.org still uses the ancient and unsecure 4.2.11 bugzilla.
The last release from 4.2 series is 4.2.16 (2015 Dec 22) which means
the EOL of 4.2. The latest releases are 4.4.11 and 5.0.2.

Once we could upgrade to 4.4+, a very old annoying bug would be fixed:
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124047 . (If you review a
patch, you aren't cc-ed to the bug to be able to follow the future
of the bug. You won't be notified if the author fixes what you asked
or if the patch breaks the build or makes tests fail.)
