P4DTI issue job000708

TitleNo procedure for creating new mysql dumps
Assigned userDavid Jones
Description        Running the automated tests requires a mysql dump of a Bugzilla
database that corresponds to the Bugzilla release being tested.
When testing with a Bugzilla release that hasn't been tested
before a new mysql dump is needed. The procedure for creating
these is not documented.
AnalysisFor the record a good procedure is:
1) Populate mysql with dump from an old version:
mysqladmin --force drop dbname
mysqladmin create dbname
mysql dbname <dbdump
2) install the new Bugzilla following the upgrade procedure.
Running checksetup.pl will fix the mysql database.
3) dump the fixed database out:
mysqldump dbname >file
