Yes, this is a known limitation.

It's still possible via the bugzilla APIs (xmlrpc/jsonrpc) and also
via the comment-via-email that is enabled on fdo's bugzilla.
Also when the bug has an alias, it was accessible via regular web for some time.

Best to send him a note...

A query like:


query in product LibreOffice (all states/resolutions/components) where
the comments did change after (including) 2015-01-25) can be used to
query the modified bugs.


(or also xmlrpc version, but jsonrpc is easier to use in the browser)
can be used to query for the comments. Using a browser-extension that
formats json nicely is recommended :-)

you can limit the output to recent comments with the new_since parameter:


you can pass multiple bugzilla-IDs to the ids parameter:


Very likely those links will not be clickable, but using copy'n'paste
should work. If you're using a non-mainstream browser, you might have
to manually encode the brackets and maybe other characters. (firefox
and chrome should do it by themselves)
