Bugzilla – Bug 3934
reject screenshot submissions

need a way to mark screenshot submissions as rejected (mentioned this on the

the current system could be abused to host innappropriate images, we need a way
to flag those images as innappropriate and then later delete them.

to attach submissions, but I'm not sure bugzilla provides a convenient way to
delete attachments either.

Oh, incidentally, I found another way this issue manifests itself. If a
zipfile or tarball is uploaded, and the metadata experience this issue,
propagate-metadata.pl cannot propagate them, because XML::Twig cannot
parse metadata.rdf, due to the invalid character. Here is an example of
such a file:
Ignore previous comment; it was intended for another bug.
obsolete due to the implementation of screenshots in cchost...
