P4DTI issue job000180

TitleThe bugzilla_user parameter is confusing
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionMany people find the bugzilla_user configuration parameter confusing. We should get rid of it and use the replicator_address parameter in its place.
AnalysisThe bugzilla_user parameter seems somewhat confusing. The docs are full of cross-references like "we recommend that this is the same as <this other email address>". We could easily enforce that. The bugzilla_user parameterIt needs to be the email address of the replicator's bugzilla user record, but it doesn't need to be different from the replicator_address. If we make it the same then the documentation shrinks a bit and the confusion should be cleared up.
How foundinspection
EvidenceHaving to explain the role of the bugzilla_user parameter to the other p4dti developers again!
