[sabayon-dev] Pastebin usage with Bugzilla

Obviously a system needs to be created where by the data on paste bins get merged into the ticket thus meaning only when the ticket is resolved the data is "removed" this may require someone copying and pasting this into the ticket..
The alternative is someone ask HP for a license to use HP SM7 to track tickets... Haha yeah, no...
Afaik if users paste their log then that is a massive step to solving the bug.
Another question would be, has anyone got a system where the sabayon paste bin expires after a year or so? Just an idea.
And my 2c's
