[Libreoffice-qa] Bugzilla: Changing several bugs at once

Adding a unique identifier to the comment during a bulk-update is
great. In fact, bulk updates are so powerful and (from time to time)
have unintended side effects (e.g. accidentally leaving 4 identical
comments on each bug :P), that I'd suggest that we make it common
practice to add such an ID.
1) The date in the ID
To avoid confusion (because date syntax can differ between europe and
the us), I'd suggest that we use the unambiguous YYYY-MM-DD for the
syntax, e.g. 2015-01-10
2) I can imagine that we might want to issue 2 different bulk updates
in a single day, so I'd suggest something like:
"NEEDINFO notification: 2015-01-10"
"NEEDINFO -> INVALID: 2015-01-10"
Having the unique ID means that we can get a list of all bugs in a
given bulk-update with a simple Bugzilla string search.
