How can I change the privacy notice in both the site and email messages? My instance is not public facing. I don't like this:

PRIVACY NOTICE: Bugzilla is an open bug tracking system. Activity on most bugs, including email addresses, will be visible to the public. We recommend using a secondary account or free web email service (such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or similar) to avoid receiving spam at your primary email address.

To change or remove this notice you need to amend the following Template files:

  • create.html.tmpl located in \template\en\default\account\
  • request-new.txt.tmpl located in \template\en\default\account\email\
