Comment 1 Mike MacKenzie 2004-10-01 14:31:49 EDT
Additional justification forwarded by Nisfan:

Engineers have no way to determine whether a bug comes from an issue 
tracker (and hence from a paying customer) or a random user in the
They also have no way to look back to related ITs to see if there is 
additional information if they so desire.  And most importantly, there is 
no for an engineer to see if this is a frequently reported problem (i.e. 
if there is one customer report or many).  We have hijacked the Alias 
field, but this is also used for other purposes, is used inconsistently, 
and is frequently overwritten by others.

Many of the tools changes proposed are for support and PM.  This one 
change would allow individual engineers to more quickly understand 
customer impact and hence priority.  It's not perfect, but it's the one 
little change that I think would get us big gains in the short term.

Make sense?
