Reaction from an end-user that has filed/commented/viewed a lot of bug
- I like the idea of separating
-- main bug reports.
All releases together. A lot of end-users are not very aware of the
version/release of the software with the bug until they are well into
the reporting process. So selecting the release would be better delayed
to the bug report entry page.
Plus the idea of eventually having bugs applying to multiple releases
(mentioned on another post) sounds good, as well.
Tends to be reported/corrected by different people than software bugs.
-- localisation (maybe combined with documentation ?)
Also tends to be reported by different people than software bugs, and
corrected by translators.
- Better to avoid listing .srpm's. Most end-users filing bug reports
have no idea what they are. So no point in slowing down bugzilla for that.
And from the .rpm, packagers/developers will be able to find the .srpm
- The idea of a multiline .rpm field (mentioned on another post) seems
an excellent idea. Better to list all related .rpm's in one location
than putting additional .rpms into the description and/or comment
fields. (Not only for mageia-app-db.)
my 2 cents :)
