I'm not sure if the software is set up to regenerate historical data.
Do you know?

I'll add this to the list of items to request from the FDO admins

If my guess is right, then regeneration w/o the old data is not
feasible, and with it is a no-op, so it should take no time at all!

I can't remember off the top of my head -- IIRC it just referenced
some line in the code and said nothing specific about missing data for
input. Basically, it sounds like the code is brittle and doesn't have
appropriate handling built-in for the base case when the server has
generated no data. Oops!

Yep, please try again (I just removed and reinstalled the cron job).

IIRC there were a half-dozen whine_schedule entries in the data from
FDO. Instead of trying to determine which schedules to keep and which
to remove, it's definitely simplest for us to just delete all the
schedules during migration and have individuals re-add the ones they

I'll add a task for myself to look through the whine tables and try to
determine all of the users who have whine schedules set up that
pertain to LibreOffice. That way I can tell them that
1) They had a whine schedule set up on FDO (whether it was working or not
2) That we're deleting it during migration, as that's the simplest
mechanism for us
3) That they can re-add it themselves after migration

Are they listed in the saved-searches tab?  The visibility can be
toggled on/off -- see if that's the issue for you:

Sure -- but I think that all of the white-on-dark text is harder to
read than the corresponding dark-on-white text of the 'Classic' theme,
at least on my monitor :-)

That all sounds pretty reasonable to me. Want to submit a patch? :-)

I guess you'd need that to submit a patch, eh? Code's up on our Gerrit
here: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/projects/bugzilla
(As it turns out, Gerrit's undergoing upgrades today, but will be back
up soon :-)

Thanks for all the feedback!
